CharacteristicsEdit

The Gauss shotgun is a powerful firearm with superior damage to other weapons of its class. Like the Gauss rifle, the Gauss shotgun can be charged to fire more powerful rounds. When crafted, Gauss shotguns use legendary modules, becoming legendary weapons with randomly determined effects. Although the Gauss shotgun is listed under "energy guns" when crafted, Gauss shotguns do not count as energy weapons like other Gauss weapons.

As with other Wastelanders weapons only available with gold bullion, Gauss shotguns cannot be traded, dropped, or sold to vendors.

CraftingEdit

Gauss shotguns are always crafted at the maximum level available to the player character. The weapon will be a one-star, two-star, or three-star legendary weapon with randomly determined effects.

Weapon mods can only be crafted if the corresponding plan is known. Mod plans for the Gauss shotgun are bought from Samuel for gold bullion and cannot be learned from scrapping Gauss shotguns.
