A gun rag. A magazine devoted to the practical use of firearms, and the occasional biased review.

Guns and Bullets is a skill book in Fallout and Fallout 2.


Useful mostly for beginners in the wonderful world of small arms, Guns and Bullets permanently improves the player's Small Guns skill level. However, reading alone will not make a master marksman; the higher the reader's skill in Small Guns, the smaller the skill increase will be. At very high levels, the magazine will do nothing at all. Specifically, once the skill reaches 92%, the book will cease working (this applies to all skill books in Fallout & Fallout 2). It is, however, possible to adjust this through the difficulty setting, or by temporarily lowering one's SPECIAL attributes (and the corresponding skills) through drug use.
