Already in a Page?

Isn't this already in the Fallout 3 weapons page?
The unique weapons are the ones in parenthesis.

Well, since I had a lot of free time... there you go.

A unique bat named Excalibat ( code C80BC ) have been found on a Raider's corpse in a random encounter. It is yet unknown if this unique version is to be found somewhere in game, as unique weapons sometimes spawns in high level random encounter like the Victory Rifle. As I have no idea if it exists for good somewhere in game, I didn't create a specific page for it. Excalibat is DAM 19 WG 3 VAL 75, normal baseball bat is DAM 15 WG 3 VAL 55 for me.

No, the Excalibat will never be found in the game (only in the game files). Ever. Unless it's hexed or modded into it. Nukey (talk) 08:10, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

Plasma pistol

Why aint there a plasma pistol??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.43.79.100 (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Because the devs didn't make one. Why didn't they make one? Only they know. Please sign your posts on talk pages or forums with four tildes (~~~~). --Sentinel 101 18:11, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Add-on update

Page needs to be updated with unique weapons from add-ons, i.e.:

Should DLC items be incorporated or separate? SuSpence95 (Talk) 07:55, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Incorporated. Also just noticed that I forgot the Samurai's Sword, added it to the list. -- Porter21 (talk) 08:38, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Don't forget the Toy Knife! Icko 09:48, 11 August 2009 (UTC) Paulson's Revolver should be added too. Icko 09:56, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok so we need:

Is that all? SuSpence95 (Talk) 09:59, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Think so. -- Porter21 (talk) 10:10, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I think we're done. I don't know how you do it Porter ALL the time. I would go crazy with all that organizing and templates. SuSpence95 (Talk) 10:22, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Somebody has to :) -- Porter21 (talk) 10:23, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
I guess so... SuSpence95 (Talk) 10:24, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

An idea: a cross next to Stabhappy and Sydney's SMG meaning that you can obtain more than one :) Icko 10:47, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Also on the subject of further formatting, in accordance with all other weapons pages, the unique weapons from Add-on's should probably be in italics. As of right now, it is somewhat confusing initially to find no visual distinction between DLC weapons and those contained in the original game (apart from the small note in the far right column). While other option would be to relocate add-on weapons to seperate sections pertinent to each particular add-on, it does make sense to classify by weapon type. Therefore, this user feels it necessary to make all add-on weapon names in italics so one can quickly distinguish them from the originals. Also it might make things smoother to relocate the note about what add-on these weapons came from closer to the weapon name, thus saving the users from looking back and forth from the far left of the page to the far right simply to determine if they have the weapon or not.

stealthy = no good with melee

Why the heck are all the actually good melee's only on add-ons like jangwei's shocksword and the mauler why are none in game? they all SUCK! - Bio Enhancment 411 17:02, 27 August 2009 (UTC)



Well there are both Fawke's Super Sledge and the Shiskebab so you don't really have to have the add-ons to get good mellee weapons although you are somewhat right.

The location of the weapon should be included too

The unique weapons are usually found in a specific location, and though it is included in their seperate page, I think it would be appropriate to include the weapons location along with its other attributes, or if it is a random encounter or found on a follower, it should be stated.Superinsomniac 00:03, October 18, 2009 (UTC)


Agreed. I've been waiting for someone to compile this list for the sole purpose of having a list of locations in order to find all the unique weapons in the game. Frankly, there isn't really a point to this page existing without it, as a user looking strictly for info about the stats of these weapons could just as easily consult the existing Fallout 3 Weapons page, with the added incentive that it isn't just limited to unique weapons. Does anyone here have the time to add this to the list, which is found simply by consulting each weapon's page? (I am not familiar with editing tables). Jellyb0nes 01:15, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

Comparisons

Would it be possible to have, in the infobox, comparison stats to the 'vanilla' versions?


ie:


Stabhappy (combat knife)

dmg/attack 10 (7)

DPS 30 (21)


or some similar mechanic, so that it is easy to tell how much better each weapon is in comparison.

Questions.

Hey,

I have some questions about making these types of tables and putting info in it. Basically I wanna know how you made the table and then how did you put the info in. I'm new so I am still learning my way around the wikia and how to make effective articles. If you could give me some more tips and walkthroughs of how to make a good article, I would appreciate it a lot.

Thanks!

Operation anchorage - Missed weapons

Hello,

I found some weapons in the armoury in the Operation Anchorage Add - on. They are in a crate labelled hermetically sealed weapons container. There are a couple of Chinese dragoon guns and a few steel alloy guns there a well. I don't know if these are unique or not. Cheers

I remember this thing, you're running a mod somewhere. There is no hermetically sealed container. All of the Chinese Dragoon weapons and all of the Alloy Steel guns are part of the add-on, but were unused, except for the combat shotgun, which is mod created.

Ah... so i didn't miss them on my first few rounds.... cheers
