Events involving the rifle Edit
Summary: Raiders come to the shelter and order the family to surrender. The rifle can be used to hold off the raiders without trouble. Using the Rifle will give the player an Axe if he/she doesn't already have one, much like how using the Axe gives the player a Rifle (needs confirmation).
Military gun event (Requirements: Rifle)
Summary: The military comes onto the radio and asks all current survivors to dispose of their firearms. This breaks the survivor's 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms. Using the Rifle will increase the chance to get the military rescue ending..
Summary: The family is about to go outside into the wasteland when a growling is heard in the shadows. Using the Rifle scares away/takes down Pancake and he is never mentioned again.
Whenever there are rats, bunny-beasts or roaches in the shelter, using the rifle will successfully take them down but there's a chance that the rifle will break if the player chooses to use it.
