For an overview of 12 gauge shotgun shell in the Fallout series of games, see 12 gauge shotgun shell.
Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

12 gauge shotgun shell is a type of ammunition that was to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It also featured in the Van Buren tech demo game files.


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. It is a pretty valuable ammo type for close combat encounters.

Weapons using this ammunitionEdit


There are two variants of 12 gauge shotgun shell ammunition:

  • 12 gauge shotgun shell
  • 12 gauge slug shells


  • While it doesn't appear in the Van Buren tech demo, it is still present in the game files and can be spawned with the console command CreateEntity Ammo12_ga.amo.
