The sturdy caravan shotgun is a unique weapon added by the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Courier's Stash, or the pre-order Caravan Pack.
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".
Sturdy caravan shotgun expanded
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.
Despite its rough appearance, this caravan shotgun is extremely durable, with more than twice the item health of a normal caravan shotgun, hence the name. It also does slightly more damage, but is significantly less accurate. The caravan shotgun uses a screw as an iron sight. The raised off-center piece is the release allowing the gun to break and be reloaded.
Originally, the only way to acquire this weapon was by redeeming the code that came with the pre-order exclusive Caravan Pack. It can now also be acquired by purchasing the add-on Courier's Stash.
