Are you MAD?! We can't give it a GUN! GUNS... wait, I said that already. Yes, I have THE Cyberdog Gun. With the little floppy metal ears and the curious nose sensor. Here.

Dr. Borous

The K9000 cyberdog gun is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


This weapon is actually an odd form of cyberdog, except instead of a robotic body in the image of a canine companion, a living dog's brain has been provided with a machine gun frame, utilizing .357 magnum ammunition. Its "canine" features include two metallic "ears" mounted on top of the weapon that move like a real dog's, and a sniffer mounted on the jar containing its preserved brain, allowing the gun to sense its surroundings. The metal ears also appear to move up and down faster if the gun is pointing in the direction of an enemy.

It will growl when the player has it equipped and comes into contact with enemies, whine mournfully when they un-equip it, and will bark when equipped. It also has, atypically for a machine gun, a telescopic sight (x2.43 magnification) which gives a relatively accurate aiming point and excellent precision in firing for a chain-gun type weapon. When fired the barrels reciprocate, rather than spinning like those of the minigun.

The K9000 can also detect enemies out of visual and Perception range. When the weapon and its sniffer hover in the direction of an enemy for a few seconds, it will let out a detection growl, even at extreme range or when the enemy is hidden from appearing on radar.


The K9000 cyberdog gun can fire a total of about 2495 standard rounds, the equivalent of 50 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • K9 is a homophone for "canine," another word for dogs. This abbreviation is often used as a designation for police and military units specialized in using dogs.

  • ps3Icon ps3 pcIcon pc xbox360Icon xbox360 There is a bug in the V.A.T.S. animation whereby it shows the weapon ejecting 12 spent cartridge cases instead of the correct number of 3. A close inspection of the damage dealt during one V.A.T.S. round will show that the weapon will deal the correct damage of 3 rounds, and 3 rounds will be properly deducted from your inventory.
