* It can be obtained from [[Ronald Laren]] in [[Girdershade]]. It can be looted from his body after killing him, shot out of his hands with [[V.A.T.S]] and picked up, or pickpocketed from him while he sleeps. The latter option may be preferable to most players, because of his importance in [[The Nuka-Cola Challenge]].

For an overview of shotguns in the Fallout series of games, see shotgun.

The Kneecapper is a unique sawed-off shotgun in Fallout 3.


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."


The Kneecapper deals much more damage than either of the non-unique shotguns, and is significantly more accurate than the regular sawed-off. A combat shotgun would be more accurate and more reliable, considering the difference of 10 whole shells in the capacity of both weapons, but The Kneecapper deals more damage. This gun relies on raw power since it does not hit any critical hit damage.

The Kneecapper can fire a total of 111 shots before breaking.

Behind the scenes

  • The Kneecapper takes its name from the act of "kneecapping" someone, which is shooting them in the kneecaps to cripple their legs.
