12 gauge shotgun shells are ammunition in Fallout 2.

Background

The following section is transcluded from 12 gauge shotgun shell. To modify, please edit the source page.

The most common type of shotgun shell, 12 gauge rounds are the de facto standard for shotguns across the wasteland, corresponding to an 18.53mm/.729 bore. Purebore ammunition is the most popular and most durable shell brand to hit the wastelands after the Great War, loaded with leaden pellets that can take down humans, mutants, and monstrosities with equal ease. All shells have a print reminding the users that they are not for use by children under 3. Shoot responsibly![1]

Characteristics

Common and cheap, shotgun rounds are an excellent all around ammunition type, thanks to the different types of shotguns in the game and the inherent -20% AC modifier.
