The Big Boomer is a unique weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from shotgun. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

A shotgun, also called a "scattergun," is a firearm designed to shoot a multitude of lead or steel balls of varying sizes, greatly increasing the weapon's hit potential. This makes it very effective at hunting game. However, the accuracy and power found at close range starts to diminish as the target gets farther away. Shotguns designed for the military's use are often called "combat shotguns."

CharacteristicsEdit

The Big Boomer is a sawed-off shotgun with the same break action, 12 gauge that fires both shells at a time, delivering 14 pellets at a time instead of the typical 7 of other shotguns.

Like the common sawed-off shotgun, the Big Boomer has the same general characteristics with high burst damage, low damage-per-second, high weapons spread, but slightly better statistics. The only big difference is that the common sawed-off shotgun is classified as a holdout weapon, whereas the Big Boomer is not.

DurabilityEdit

Big Boomer can fire a total of about 395 times, or 790 standard rounds, the equivalent of 395 reloads, from full condition before breaking. This is exactly the same amount as its common variant.

Behind the scenesEdit

Icon cut contentThe following is based on Fallout: New Vegas cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Within the games files exists an unused texture for the Big Boomer.[1] It uses the Fallout 3 model and only differs from that in the color of the wood and the words Big Boomer written down the side of the handgrip.
