Background[edit | edit source]
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.
Characteristics[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.
Variants[edit | edit source]
- Sturdy caravan shotgun , a unique version that's more durable and powerful, albeit with a much higher spread.
- Cass' caravan shotgun, a unique non-playable caravan shotgun used by Cass. It has higher stats than the regular caravan shotgun and uses companion ammunition.
