The shotgun is a weapon that appears in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout Tactics, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel and Van Buren.

BackgroundEdit

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."

Fo2 Sawed-Off Shotgun

Someone took the time to chop the last few inches off the barrel and stock of this shotgun. Now, the wide spread of this hand-cannon's short-barreled shots make it perfect for short-range crowd control.

Hunting shotgunEdit

The hunting shotgun is a long range precision shotgun used for hunting big game. This shotgun was built for accuracy and power, and is one of the best shotguns available, it uses rare but powerful 12 gauge shells. It's pump-action, which means there's a longer than average reload delay between shots. It also loads through the bottom.
