In Fallout New Vegas there are many "unique" variants of normal weapons, for example the All-American is the unique Marksman Carbine and the Gobi Campaign Scout Rifle is the unique variant of the Sniper Rifle. My question is: is there a unique equivalent for every non-special weapon in the game? I've found many unique variants, but I'm wondering if one exists for every weapon.

    Remember, players, if there is a particular unique on the list you expect to be spending a lot of time with, stock pile the normal weapon. All unique weapons (apart from the Alien Blaster) can be repaired withe the normal counterpart. The Alien Blaster is unique in that you can not repair it. You can not obtain more power cells for it, either, so save it for a tough fight. The Alien Blaster is often considered the best gun in the game, and guarantees a critical hit (1-shotting almost every enemy in the game).
