Forums: Index > Fallout: New Vegas gameplay help > Correct Base ID for .50 MG Explosive ammo???

I confirm that the .50mg explosive is 0900085b is correct for me.

I have seen the on the Ammo page for .50 MG the Base ID of xx00085b given where xx should be 09 for Fallout New Vegas. When I try to give myself explosive ammo I cannot with that code. I can give myself any other ammo.

player.additem 09000875b x (where x is amount) does not work, I just get a silly error code.

I have clicked on other people, etc. in game to confirm 09 is correct. I have attempted to find in using GECK but have not found any .50 explosive references. All the other .50 ammos are there. I can buy it in game, I can use it until I run out.

Is it me? Any help would be appreciated. I am done playing the game and now just want to goof around and blow things up sniper style. lol 14:36, August 21, 2012 (UTC)

For me it was 0100085b and the Editor ID is a different name style. The others are Ammo50MGxxxx but the Explosive version is NVDLC05Ammo50MGExplosive...have no idea why. --TheRealBrockSampson (talk) 14:50, August 21, 2012 (UTC)

I don't really use the GECK, but 09 seems to be the code for Lonesome Road, not the base game, and the explosive rounds are added in Gun Runner's Arsenal so it makes sense that it has a different name than the others from the base game. Paladin117>>iff bored; 14:58, August 21, 2012 (UTC)

Ahhhh, good point! I did not think of that. Overlooked it but so obvious. --TheRealBrockSampson (talk) 16:26, August 21, 2012 (UTC)
