20 gauge shotgun mod?

Post by Laclongquan » Fri May 21, 2021 3:24 pm

Is there any love for 20 gauge? I love 12 gauge, I do, but the 20 gauge rounds are sitting there staring at me singing: "where is the love?" in a black eyed peas voice

So yeah, I'd like to ask if you guys know any mod that have a good weapon using this caliber.

I did try a mod (m30 drilling triple barrel sawed off) but the thing is: it's too powerful it break balance. I dont need that.

Other the thing is: there's too many shotgun mod and those enthuasiasts dont particular care that an outsider dont understand their cryptic notes (if they leave any).

So to stress the question, I'd like to ask if you guys know any mod that have a good weapon using this caliber.

I didn't look very far, but most of the shotgun mods only utilize 12 gauge. I guess people don't really care about 20 gauge, or weapon balance in general. I personally don't use weapon mods because they tend to break the balance of an easy-to-break game, or over-saturate levelled lists with weapons nobody cares about. Not to mention most of them look kinda shitty.

I did find a few however:
Hunting Shotgun 20 gauge rechamber

Tac mag fed shotgun chambered in 12 gauge and 20 gauge

HK CAWS

From the youtube view, that HK CAWS doesnt "feel" like shooting a shotgun.

I actually looked at the hunting shotgun rechambered mod way earlier. BUT I am afraid of trouble arise when enemies using that type of gun and wrong type of ammo. Fixing in middle game is possible but what a turn off~ Which is why I decided against that mod (and still do).

That saiga mod (Tac mag fed shotgun chambered in 12 gauge and 20 gauge
https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods ... escription ) I am trying it.
-----------
For the record, currently I am using Scoped Long-Barrel Lever Action Shotgun mod https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/71807?
it's not bad in itself. AND thank to its asset, the original FNV lever action gun I additem in work better, though not as good as this one.
----------
Tactical usage show that Scoped Long-Barrel Lever Action Shotgun is practically LAS with a mag and a scope on it. Same AP cost.
But the 20 gauge tactical shotgun though, damn thing is like a SMG using big ammo. Double speed compare to both guns above.
So for the sake of not breaking fragile balance of Fallout 3, I'd keep the LBLAS.

When we add back big guns, there will be a lot of shotguns added to take up the slots of the moved weapons. There will be more 20ga shotguns like the CAWS.

That's not my mod, and that's not my google drive either~ I pick that sharings up on a reddit thread I think.

The note inside said it's a mod on Nexus, but when I check it on Nexus that mod was deleted~ Dunno if it's been during that recent ruckus or not.

Regardless piracy is not tolerated here. I'd advise you remove the link before it's removed for you by one of the mods.

The TTW devs can create their own assets, they don't need one's stolen from others.

Visual scattershot from shotgun mod
https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/43584

It make shots with magnum and buckshot look more 'shotguny'.

Strictly visual effect. BUT. Still. People that like shotgun get really snarky about the motion of loading bullets, holding gun, and shooting it, rather than power. So I feel this one would help a better shotgun experience.

Looking back, I feel that buying a lever action shotgun from start would help the cause of 20 gauge better than anything else~ No mod, no unique, but at least it would be... more use in the beginning.
EDIT: the visual above apply to buckshot and magnum. And in late game they are not very useful on armored targets. So that mod is of more use early game.
-----------
And suddenly I found two classical weapon for Fallout Vegas.
M37 Ithaca
https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods ... posts&BH=0
And of course, the earlier HK Caws
https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods ... escription
Two very familiar names, eh~
And both for 20 gauge. The Pancor is for 12 gauge.
The CAWS is pretty strong for middle game or earlier, stronger than the Saiga mod earlier. But well, you can use it in late game stage, level 30+.
Damn thing spread like heck~ Without using slug and pulse slug, other ammo are quite inaccurate. OTOH, coin shots are awesome. Then again, coin shots are awesome in every shotguns.

Dogbone Lever action shotgun

It's 6-rounds, tighter spread, better damage, triply durable lever action shotgun. handplaced in Violetta dog fortress.
------------
Speaking of LAS, I test one from start in Capital Wasteland and it's pretty powerful. Nowhere near enough as Combat shotgun, or its variant The Terrible Shotgun, ofcourse (double that when you use coinshots). But LAS using at start can be very good

Especially using buckshot magnum :thumbsup: Feel very shotgunny~

The 5 rounds help much, because 2 rounds caravan shotgun annoy me so much.

The Dogbone's 6 rounds are going to help when you need to deal with targets unable to be down with 5 rounds .
