The Van Buren is an improvised rifle featured in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.

BackgroundEdit

A rudimentary firearm made infamous by the prison inmate who invented it. Its design is simple and easy to reproduce; for anyone with the means and basic materials, a group of desperate survivors can easily become a formidable 19th-century army overnight.

Can be made at home with the proper tools and knowledge.

How to obtainEdit

Recycling productsEdit

  • Bolt Assembly x 1
  • Pipe x1
  • Machined Parts x Variable (dependent on the item's Level and attachments/conditions)

TacticsEdit

Whilst rather mediocre in most regards compared to other long rifles, the Van Buren does give a bit of ranged punch to those classes specialized in improvised weapons, like the Engineer. Keeping another survivor nearby to protect its wielder during its frequent reloads would be a good idea.
