DMG: This information comes from the G.E.C.K. and shows the damage caused by a single click of the mouse/trigger. For most guns, this is a single bullet, but for shotguns it is a single shell (containing several small pellets), for the Gatling laser it is a single beam, and for melee weapons it is a single hit. This stat is most useful for comparing semi-automatic weapons such as rifles, where you can see the full damage caused by a single shot, regardless of how long it takes to load and fire the next one.
DPS: This stands for damage per second. E.G. a gun has a DMG of 10 and fires 3 bullets per second. Therefore the gun's DPS is 30.
AOE RADIUS: Area of effect. 64 units is equal to 1 yard.
SPRD: This is the Min Spread stat from the G.E.C.K. (the Spread stat is not used). It refers to the accuracy of a ranged weapon. 0 means the weapon can potentially fire perfectly straight, if stance, weapon skill, and weapon condition are optimal. Anything above 0 means the shots may deviate from center by that many degrees regardless of stance, skill, or condition.
CRIT % MULT: The multiplier applied to your character's critical hit chance. This modifier applies to each individual attack you make (e.g. each 5mm bullet fired from your minigun). For example, if your character has a critical hit chance of 5%, and the weapon you're using has a CRIT % MULT of x2, then each shot has a 5% x 2 = 10% chance to critically hit. For automatic weapons (assault rifles, SMGs, miniguns, etc.) the Crit % Mult stat in the G.E.C.K. is divided by the G.E.C.K.'s Fire Rate stat, hence the very small multiplier for automatic weapons. This is done to compensate for the sheer number of bullets being fired. Note that a single V.A.T.S. attack with automatic weapons only checks for critical hit once and then applies the damage bonus for all bullets in such an attack if a critical hit occurs.
CRIT DMG: The amount of damage that is added when you score a critical strike. The more specialized Sneak Attack Critical deals twice the damage of a common critical strike.
AMMO: The type of ammunition used by the weapon.
MAG: The magazine capacity of the firearm. Basically, how many shots you can fire before having to reload.
HP: Health points or condition is the amount of health a weapon has. The lower the condition of the weapon, the lower the damage and the more chance the weapon has to jam. Also this determines how many times a weapon can be fired.
ATT REQ: Attributes required to wield the weapon optimally: to gain full attack speed for melee weapons, or full aiming stability for ranged weapons. Note that further increases in weapon skill beyond the requirements will continue to increase the weapon's damage (and DPS).
Unique: - A designation for any of the "named" versions of common weapons, the unique moniker is used within these charts to define which common weapons can be used as spare parts for repairs - unique weapons are listed in yellow.
