Where can I find the Gauss Rifle?

And the unique version.
This was my favorite gun in FO3, so I'm looking forward to getting my hands on it.

Dunno about the named one but the common gauss rifle can be bought at the Brotherhood of steel shop.You need to be part of them to be able to buy it first.

I believe I was shot at with Gauss Rifles while running out of the BoS bunker. Not too sure; I didn't turn around.

When going into the Hidden Valley area for the BoS, do you need to activate a particular quest to get inside? Or is it a check against one of your skills? (i.e. - lockpicking, science, etc.)

Oh, yeah, that really does look infected... sorry.

bup. where do you get the BOS questline?

@Vampyr you can only enter if (spoilers ahead)

You get Veronica first.As part of the brotherhood she will allow you to enter in the bunker.

end spoilers.

Oh and TC you don't have to be part of them.But you need to finish their quests at least.

@res118

Go on on the main quest until you encounter Yesman.After that you'll have the location of the BoS.

Hidden Valley: BoS Hideout. I guess you could kill them and loot their bodies. I didn't stay there for long, since I'm on NCR's side, and they're enemies.

1) You can go to the BoS whenever you want no prerequisites whatsoever. I don't know what those people are talking about.

2) The unique Gauss Rifle is wicked easy to find. As long as you do not have the wild wasteland trait, if you go all the way to the north as far as the game will let you and follow the wall starting from the western most point going east, you will find a band of mercenaries eventually, one of them is wearing goofy futuristic armor and carrying the YCS 186 Unique Gauss Rifle. Loot his freshly made corpse ftw.

There's a possibility that you could access the bunker prior to what led me to them: I am EXTREMELY coonfused as to what I should do on the Vegas strip (listen to Yes Man, continue to do ncr quests, etc.) I keep reporting back to Yes Man, not knowing what outcome it'll have on me and the story. Anyway, he tells you to talk to the BoS, lleading you to the Hidden Valley bunker. That's how I found them.the Paladins are carrying Gauss rifles.
