Overview[edit | edit source]

  • All weapons can spawn as a legendary variant with a single special effect.
  • The game relies on Fallout 4 game play, except for the addition of a condition meter, so there are similarities. As such, the weapon types are:
    • Pistols are generally small, and require one hand to fire. They include, but are not limited to, the 10mm, .44, Alien Blaster and Gamma Gun.[1]
    • Rifles are generally long, of average size, and require two hands to fire. They include, but are not limited to, the Assault Rifle, Combat Rifle, Combat Shotgun, Double-Barrel Shotgun, Hunting Rifle, Laser Musket and Submachine Gun.[2]
    • Heavy guns are generally large, bulky, and exceedingly powerful. They include, but are not limited to, the Broadsider, Fatman, Flamer, Gatling Laser, Minigun and Missile Launcher.[3]
    • Semi-automatic and bolt action weapons fire one shot with each pull of their trigger. They include, but are not limited to, the Alien Blaster, Double-Barrel Shotgun, Gauss Rifle, Hunting Rifle, Laser Musket and Pipe Revolver.[4]
    • Automatic weapons fire continuously as their trigger is pulled. They include, but are not limited to, the Submachine Gun, and versions of the Assault Rifle and Combat Rifle.[5]

Perks and weapons[edit | edit source]

Weapons are no longer categorized purely by damage type, but also by their handling and mode of fire. This can be a bit confusing at first, so here's a quick breakdown of which perks fall under what type (basic models; putting an automatic receiver on eg. a 10mm pistol will change the semi-automatic to an automatic pistol).

Spawning[edit | edit source]

In order for weapons to become available for crafting and at vendors, players need to reach a specific level. However, the system is very complex and entering areas way above the player character's level or killing enemies who are stronger than the player will yield higher level weapons (e.g. entering Sam Blackwell's bunker in The Mire (a high level area) can yield level 30+ hunting rifle spawns even if the player's half that or less).

The following table is a general guideline, showing where weapons and their plans/recipes can spawn at qualifying vendors, in containers, or (worst case) on enemies busy shooting players in various vulnerable areas.
