The Heckler & Koch CAWS is a small gun in Fallout 2.

Contents

[edit] Background

Designed by Heckler & Koch, the CAWS, short for Close Assault Weapons System, is an automatic shotgun with burst capability designed in a bullpup layout. The design is meant to retain small dimensions for close range combat without compromising weapons accuracy.[1]

[edit] Characteristics

Manufactured by Heckler & Koch, the CAWS is a superior version of the combat shotgun, but a fair bit more expensive. Longer range and more shells per burst, but smaller magazine capacity. It does more damage per shot than the FN FAL but less damage per burst.

[edit] Locations

  • There are many locations you can find this weapon, but the earliest time you can find it is during a slaver Random encounter outside of Vault City.
  • A raider in Vault 15 also holds this weapon.

[edit] Behind the scenes

  • Outside of the Fallout universe, the H&K CAWS was a recoil-operated, bullpup-configuration shotgun prototype designed to fire high-impulse shotshells using tungsten buckshot or flechettes with an effective range of 100–150 meters and a 10 round box magazine. It had a fire selector switch similar to the G11, with a full-automatic firing rate of approx. 240 rounds per minute. It never reached production due to the cancellation of the CAWS project by the US.
