The caravan shotgun is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Shotgun. To modify, please edit the source page.

A shotgun, also called a "scattergun", is a firearm designed to shoot a multitude of projectiles with a single pull of the trigger. This makes it very effective at hunting game, greatly increasing the weapon's hit potential. However, the accuracy and power found at close range diminish rapidly as you get farther away from the target. Shotguns designed for military use are often called "combat shotguns".

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Caravan shotgun expanded
The following section is transcluded from Shotgun. To modify, please edit the source page.

The caravan shotgun is a short shotgun in which one barrel is mounted on top of the other, also known as an 'over/under' shotgun. The iron sight is a screw which holds the action release lever to the receiver.

Gameplay attributes[edit | edit source]

It can be a bit confusing when trying to aim with the iron sights; the target has to be placed behind the screw that is somewhat blocking the player character's view. There are four horizontal marks on the screw; the target needs to be behind the second mark from the top. Because of that, and its large spread, this makes it very difficult to utilize slugs effectively.
