About this mod

Literally what the title says, a shotgun that fits in with the pipe rifle and pipe revolver guns. I felt like this was missing. Stats are similar to the double barrel shotgun.

The Pipe Shotgun Collection

What is it?
It's a pipe shotgun collection of various pipe shotguns :D


Why did i make it?
There are loads of handmade weapons in fallout 4 but a handmade shotgun was still missing. A friend of mine convinced me to start modding and told me that there already was a half build handmade shotgun model in the game files. This was not being used by fallout 4 so i edited the model and worked on creating a fully usable and mod able weapon for in-game. 

As mentioned before, the stats are about the same as the double barrel shotgun. 
After update 2.6 this mod now contains the following modifications:
- Seven shotgun types
- Eight customized receivers
- Three barrel types for each shotgun type(3*7=21 barrels in total)
- Four grips
- Six Muzzles(one no muzzle)
- Three Bayonets
- Ten Sights

The previously mentioned receiver was not the only thing that Bethesda left in the game files. Some sound files were also left behind so i used them to create a new distinct sound when you fire the gun. I hope you like it :)
Once GECK is out, i will try to create a pipe shotgun mod with a design that's closer to the original model i found. I hope GECK will allow me to create a reload animation for the original model.(Pump action)

This weapon will spawn on NPCs and can also be found in safes etc.
