Fallout 3 Terrible Shotgun Gets Real
November 6th, 2012
If you aren’t familiar with the Terrible Shotgun, it has the second highest damage of all the weapons in the Small Guns category in Fallout 3. It also has a larger spread than normal shotguns. It is most effective in close-quarters. In fact, it is terribly deadly up close.
It’s an awesome weapon and so it’s no wonder that Harrison Krix at Volpin Props was commissioned to make this amazing replica for the web series Nuka Break. The barrel and heat shield are made of aluminum. The trigger mechanism too as well as the sight and forward pump piston.
Two drum magazines lock into place with magnetic catches. The cocking lever on the right side is spring loaded, like the trigger. Fully assembled, the whole thing weighs over 8 lbs. The detail is pretty amazing as we’ve come to expect from Volpin.
Sadly, this replica weapon does not actually fire real rounds, but you can’t have everything.
