The black powder blunderbuss is a non-automatic pistol in Fallout 76.


The black powder blunderbuss is a percussion cap muzzleloader. Much like a flintlock pistol, the black powder blunderbuss takes .50 caliber balls as ammunition, however, it has a widened barrel. Visually, there is a bag of gunpowder that comes with the weapon and is used in the reloading animation, but reloading the gun does not use any gunpowder from the player character's inventory or C.A.M.P.. The black powder blunderbuss has no modifications available.
