With the release of the Gun Runners' Arsenal DLC slated for Tuesday next week, Obsidian's project director J.E. Sawyer has penned another brief article containing some details on what the item pack adds. More energy weapons and guns are this installment's subjects:
GRA Tri-Beam Laser Rifle, Plasma Defender - You're an Energy Weapon aficionado and you're looking for some mid-range customizations. We've got just the thing you're looking for. The Gun Runners have set up distribution for customizable Tri-Beam Laser Rifles and Plasma Defenders. For the Tri-Beam, you've got Focus Optics (increases damage), HD Capacitors (dramatically increases condition), and a High-Capacity Terminal (increases ammo capacity). If you're more of a (Plasma Spaz), take in the customizable Plasma Defender (shown above). A Scope and Sheath Stabilizer (decreases spread) give it a (throwback) look. The High-Capacity Terminal significantly boosts ammo capacity.
20 Ga. 3/0 Buck, 12 Ga. 4/0 Buck - Shotguns: you love them, we love them. But sometimes, ordinary buckshot doesn't get the job done when the Vipers come knocking in a suit of metal armor. Sure, you could bust out the slugs, but the Gun Runners have some more options: 20 Gauge 3/0 Buck and 12 Ga. 4/0 Buck. Fewer pieces of shot, but they're bigger and heavier. Still not enough? Fine, take the Hand Loader perk and craft some Magnum variants.
GRA 5.56mm Pistol, GRA Battle Rifle - The Gun Runners have a new run of two of the most popular models we've seen. The first are our faithful reproductions of (that gun) you know the one we're talking about, the jury-rigged .223 that came out of the Hub way back when. Our repros work with .223 and 5.56mm ammo of all flavors. Accurate, hit like a mad Brahmin, and they even make that (cool) sound when you reload. Our refurbished Battle Rifles are true classics, going back way before the Great War. Any semi-auto capable of pumping out eight shots of .308 with dependable accuracy is a keeper in our book. What book? The Big Gun Runners Book of Death, smart guy. This one makes a cool reloading sound too. The rifle, not the book.
