The Pepper Shaker is a ranged weapon in Fallout 76, introduced in the Steel Reign update.

Characteristics

The Pepper Shaker takes one second to spin up before it begins automatically firing shotgun blasts of eight projectiles. It counts as both a shotgun and heavy gun, and will benefit from any perk within each weapon class. Like all multi-projectile weapons, the outgoing damage is split between the number of projectiles. If the Pip-Boy damage is 200, each pellet will deal 25 damage.

The Pepper Shaker uses shotgun shells by default, but can be modified to utilize fusion cells or plasma cartridges. The number of barrels may be customized as well, augmenting the fire rate, accuracy or even the number of projectiles. Additionally, it may be fitted with an upgraded gunner sight for improved control while firing down sights.
