The Jackhammer, despite its name, is an easy to control shotgun, even when fired on full automatic. The popular bullpup design, which places the magazine behind the trigger, makes the weapon well balanced & easy to control.Fallout 2 description

The Pancor Jackhammer is a small gun in Fallout 2.

Background

This section is transcluded from Combat shotgun. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

A combat shotgun is a shotgun that is intended for use in an offensive role, typically by a military force. While limited in range, the multiple projectiles typically used in a shotgun shell provide increased hit probability unmatched by other small arms, usually utilized in close-range combat.[Fallout 2d20 1] Most combat shotguns are fully automatic and have a drum magazine, giving them a definite advantage over break-action double-barrel shotguns.

Characteristics

This is the strongest shotgun, having greater range, damage, and burst fire capabilities and is able with a good burst to shred against strong foes.

Locations

Behind the scenes

In real life, the Jackhammer was a prototype design that failed to reach full-fledged production due to its manufacturer's bankruptcy. Very few functional prototypes (according to some reports, as few as three) were ever made with only one prototype left in existence. The game stays true to the weapon's reputation of controllability, even with automatic fire.
