—Fallout: DUST author


Dang. No fork.

DUST introduces a variety of new, non-craftable and craftable weapons to Fallout: New Vegas. This page tries to cover the characteristics of all weapons DUST adds to Fallout: New Vegas.

Some weapons of Fallout: New Vegas and its add-ons have been renamed or slightly modified, while many remain unaltered. Individual pages for weapons not listed here can be found in the Weapons Category.

The information in this article was last reviewed for DUST Version 2.0 as of 2019/04/05. All weapons and mods were checked using the G.E.C.K and FNVEdit.

Weapons in DUST[]

All weapons in DUST suffer from increased wear. Vanilla wears weapons at a rate of 0.2 weapon health per attack, whereas DUST sets this rate to 0.5. Usage of Junk rounds, the predominant type of ammunition available in DUST, will generally increase the wear by 50%, while reducing the damage output by 25%..

Weapon spread is now also a function of weapon condition, a factor ignored by vanilla.

Quoting the general skill requirements for weapons as stated on the DUST Nexus mod page:

All weapons have standardized skill requirements. To be used without any sway pistols require 50, rifles require 65, automatics require 75, and scoped weapons require 100. Melee weapons are standardized based on size and whether they are bladed/blunted.
—Fallout: DUST mod page


Legend[]

  • Name: Name of the Weapon as it appears in-game.
  • Damage (D): Base Damage. The full base damage can be dealt only, if the corresponding skill is at 100. Note, that the dealable damage for Guns also varies with the type of ammunition used.
  • DPS: Maximum damage per second, calculated from maximum base damage per attack count possible attacks per second. Clip size, reload times and other factors are currently not taken into account, so actual sustained DPS might prove to be substantially lower.
  • Spread (Spr): Spread (Min. Spread rounded up to two decimals), which describes the maximum angle projectiles can deviate from the intended trajectory. Note, that sway does not correspond to spread. Sway simply makes aiming harder by constantly moving the weapons visual aim, while spread is an unavoidable, inherent characteristic of the combination of ammo, weapon and game character properties . In other words: Spread is how straight a line the Survivor can shot the weapon (the lower spread is, the straighter), while sway decides on the magnitude of wobble experienced while aiming.
  • Health (H): Health of the weapon, if repaired to 100%. The maximum number of attacks possible, before the weapon breaks in DUST is health * 2.
  • Ammo: The type of ammunition used by the weapon. For brevity, variations like Junk, SWC, and others have been omitted. DUST introduces Junk rounds for any calibre, while still allowing Survivors choosing the Hand Loader perk to craft custom rounds. This perk is bugged in DUST, visit the Known Bugs page for more information and a workaround.
  • Clip Size (Clp): The number of rounds of a clip for the weapon at hand can hold.
  • Weight (Wgt): Weight of the weapon in lbs.
  • Skill: The skill requirement as per above quote to reduce sway and lower spread. Note that even a skill of 100 may not completely eliminate sway.
  • Strength (Str): Being below the required strength threshold for a weapon will increase sway, even if the corresponding skill is at 100.
  • BaseID: The Form ID of the weapon. xx denotes the position of DUST in the load order.

Locations[]

Spoilers as to where to find some of the Weapons of Dust, especially those appearing in special locations.

Name Base ID Location
9mm Revolver xx0013F2 The 9mm revolver behaves similarly to Fallout 3’s .32 pistol, but requires the Energy Weapons skill. Found with two bullets at the Field's Shack starting location, and in the hands of many survivors in the Mojave Wasteland.

Location verified.

Auto-Materiel Rifle xx06D632 Fully automatic 50-calibre sniper rifle, held by an NCR trooper inside White-Bird's Cave in Zion. Almost identical in appearance to the anti-materiel rifle, but with an attached bipod and metal stock.

Location verified.

Courier's Grand .50 xx0311EF Found on an NPC named The Courier in the cave formerly known as Lake Mead cave.

Location verified.

Experimental Cryo-Gun xx00C1B8 Weapon located on the first floor of the Lucky 38.

Location verified.

Gambler's Pal xx002602 Found on an NPC named Skeleton inside of what was formerly known as the Atomic Wrangler.

Location verified.

Henry 1860 Repeater xx001FF6 Survivor in the Survivor's cave, formerly known as Cannibal Johnson's cave.

Location verified.

Makeshift Crossbow xx006E18 Next to a dead survivor in Captain Dean Boat Rentals, as well as a chance of obtaining it by confronting Tribals and Sun Children. This weapon seems to be vastly underrated by many players. It is silent, can be fitted with a (craftable) scope and the weapon itself as well as the ammunition are craftable, with its Bolt ammunition being the only other ammunition craftable using the Crafting Kit besides BB: One Throwing Spear gives 3 Bolts. Note, that a Throwing Knife Spear will give 5 Bolts, but requires a Workbench.

Location verified.

Makeshift Grenade Launcher xx006119 Note, that this weapon can be crafted at a Workbench. Safehouse (former Legion Safehouse) starting location and a dead survivor inside of the former Great Khan Armory. The survior also holds the Tesla Power Armor.

Locations verified.

McCallum Rifle xx003221 Semi-automatic, high caliber rifle with a good magazine size to boot. One can be found in a building labeled Train Station just outside of Repconn headquarters, along with some weapon mods and ammo.

Location verified.

Never Misses xx001404 A unique variant of the cowboy repeater can be found on the upper floor of an abandoned building in Vegas Square.

Location verified.

Stun Gun xx001FFC Only one exists, and it is held in the footlocker on the roof of the El Rey Motel just west of Camp Mccarran. It requires either a key or a hard lock skill. It is perhaps one of the most useful weapons in dust as it is able to paralyze almost any enemy in the game. However, since it is using MF breeder ammo, it starts with zero ammo when equipped and is extremely slow to charge, so it is useless in a near death scenario. But, its stun can be used to escape from anything form Deathclaws to Tunnelers.

Location verified (roof adjacent to the second floor of the El Rey)
