Hey all you cosplayers out there, or huge fans of Fallout 3, prepare to be in awe of this exquisite Terrible Shotgun replica.
Made by Volpin Props, this replica captures all of the intricate details of the weapon. It’s almost as if they reached into the game and simply pulled it out. Sure it’s not for sale, but who knows, you may be able to hit them up to make you one. You would most definitely have to pay a good deal of money I would assume.
Unfamiliar with the weapon? Well then here is the breakdown from the Fallout wiki:
The Terrible Shotgun is a unique variant of the combat shotgun and has the second highest damage of all weapons in the Small Guns category. The weapon has a far larger spread than normal shotguns, and full damage is only done if all pellets hit, making it most effective in close-quarters.
Critical hit damage with this weapon is actually applied individually on each pellet the weapon fires in a shot outside of V.A.T.S. If all nine pellets critical hit at the same time (such as in a point-blank sneak attack critical attack), the weapon's total critical damage is 9 x 40 =360. And with the Better Criticals perk, it can go up to 540. Add in the base 80 power of the weapon, and then double the damage because of the sneak attack bonus, and the weapon's total damage turns 1240, quite close to that of the Fat Man. In fact, if the damage is increased further with a head shot, this weapon's destructive power against a single target becomes even greater than the Fat Man, being able to kill even a super mutant behemoth with a single sneak attack critical head shot.
If you're looking to see how this whole thing was made, be sure to check out Volpin Props website for the full breakdown. With the rumored Fallout TV show in the works, this will be the perfect thing to have at your viewing parties.
