Shotgun ammunition. This particular ammo is marked: "12-gauge shells, not for use by children under the age of 3."

12 gauge shotgun shells is a type of ammunition in Fallout and Fallout 2.


A fairly common ammo type, the AC modifier of the shotgun shell will make it a little bit more accurate than any of the other starting guns, until .223 FMJ weaponry are found. Even late-game enemies will use Pancor Jackhammers, making the shotgun shell a pretty valuable ammo type for many.

Weapons using this ammunitionEdit



Fallout 2Edit


In Fallout, ammunition modifiers are not applied properly which makes the 12 gauge equal to any other kind of ammunition.
