Behind the scenesEdit

  • According to Joshua Sawyer, the name "That Gun" is derived from the fact that players would refer to the .223 pistol from Fallout and Fallout 2 as "That Gun".
  • The .223 pistol was planned to be included in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky as an easter egg, along with the Bozar and generic .223 ammunition, but only remains partially implemented in the game's resources.
