The lever-action shotgun is a 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

Adding to the variety of shotguns found in Fallout: New Vegas, this shotgun has a lever-action (similar to the cowboy repeater) and fires a 20 gauge shotgun shell. It has the highest damage-per-second of all 20-gauge shotguns. The only real disadvantages to the lever-action are the ammunition capacity and the fact that it must be single-loaded instead of feeding from a detachable magazine. Additionally, the time it takes for the player to open up and close the lever action at the start and end of the reloading cycle takes an extraordinarily long time, meaning that attempting to load and fire individual shells will reduce the effective fire rate significantly.

The gun can be interrupted mid-way through reloading and fired immediately if needed. When killing an enemy with this shotgun, it has the ability to send the unfortunate corpse sprawling, potentially over five feet.

The lever-action shotgun has the distinction of being the only weapon boosted by both the Cowboy and Shotgun Surgeon perks.

DurabilityEdit

The lever-action shotgun can fire a total of about 495 standard shells, the equivalent of 99 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

BugsEdit

pcIcon pc xbox360Icon xbox360 The reload animation of lever action weapons doesn't have a corresponding jam animation, so the weapon will not jam, even at near-breaking conditions.[verified]
