A case, .50 MG is a crafting item in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics

This item is used as a crafting component of ammunition at reloading benches. Combine one .50 MG casing, lead, rifle powder, and one .50 MG primer to make one .50 MG round.

Locations

  • Enemies that use a anti-materiel rifle can have up to four casings on them when they die. NCR Veteran Rangers typically carry the anti-materiel rifle.
  • A casing can be acquired after firing a weapon chambered in the .50 MG round about 25% of the time and a 20% chance of retrieving a casing if using the match load round.
    • Having the Hand Loader perk can double the chances of recovering .50 MG casings.
  • There are 25 casings for .50 MG ammunition in each .50 MG case box.
  • Occasionally, some traveling merchants will "sell" .50 MG casings but they will always be for free. Likewise, selling casings to a merchant will not yield any caps.
