FIDO is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.

Background[edit | edit source]

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

This Big MT experimental weapon is controlled by a dog brain, which can help sniff out hostile personnel.[1][2] When fired, its three barrels reciprocate one after the other, throwing .357 Magnum rounds downrange at a rapid speed. The gun is also fitted with a telescopic scope.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

FIDO is an upgraded K9000 cyberdog gun. Unlike the the K9000 however, FIDO uses .44 Magnum rounds instead of .357 Magnum rounds, resulting in higher damage and a slightly higher spread. The brain case and the scope are red instead of blue-green and the decal is changed from a golden retriever to a bulldog. Other features of the K9000 cyberdog gun are included in FIDO.

The FIDO can fire 2495 standard rounds from full condition before breaking.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The kennel keys are in X-13 research facility.
  • The upgrade is best applied to a K9000 cyberdog gun without mods, as applying the update will eliminate all mods the gun currently has.
  • K9000's mods cannot be equipped to FIDO.
  • Players who only have access to one K9000 will not be able to apply mods to this weapon, making K9000 weapon mods useless.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The name FIDO refers to the archetypical dog's name "Fido", most famously associated with the name of Abraham Lincoln's dog. It is believed that this name was derived from the Latin word "fidelis" meaning loyal or faithful.
