The critical .45 receiver is a weapon mod for the pipe gun in Fallout 76.


The critical .45 receiver causes an affected pipe gun to use .45 rounds in place of its typical type of ammunition. It increases weapon damage but uses a less common ammo type. It also improves the critical shot damage of the weapon.


Weapon modifications will modify an existing weapon, and any modifications previously equipped on the weapon will be destroyed, not unequipped. Loose mods cannot be crafted. For modifications unlocked through scrapping, the corresponding weapon must be scrapped in order to learn how to craft it.
