About this mod

Replaces vanilla laser guns, institute guns, and/or laser muskets into Deadpool2099's Wattz Laser Gun

Permissions and credits
  • Spanish
This replaces all laser weapons (excluding the gatling laser) into Deadpool2099's Wattz Laser Gun. That includes laser guns, institute guns, and/or the laser musket if you choose the plugin with that included. 

All replaced weapons will be named "Wattz Laser" in-game, just like the original weapon mod

Replaced institute guns will have the Institute paint which lets the weapon shoot blue lasers instead of red. Laser muskets will shoot semi-auto. You or any Minutemen can fire off a few shots before reloading. 

This will replace the companion weapons for Danse, Deacon, Ingram, Curie, and Preston (again, optional if you choose the plugin with laser muskets).

Super mutants will be able to equip the Wattz Laser Gun so leveled list edits are not necessary.

1. Download and install: Wattz Laser Gun by Deadpool2099 - https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/26386

2. Make sure the esp for that mod is activated and all the assets from it are in your Fallout 4 data folder

3. Install this mod. Select the replacers you want in the installer and click finish

4. Make sure your mod manager overwrites the original esp. You must allow your mod manager to overwrite any files for the replacer to work

5. Done

Updating From a Previous Version and Some Troubleshooting Tips

1. Uninstall the replacer, download the update, then re-install the mod

2. Load your save game. Any replaced weapons in your inventory may be broken. Scrap or get rid of them if they are broken and seek out new ones by adding them via console or finding them in the game world

3. If an NPC/Companion weapon is broken, you can individually update them by entering the console, selecting the NPC, and entering the "Resurrect" console command. You will have to do this one-by-one for each NPC. 

If the NPC/Companion isn't equipping their replaced weapon after the resurrect command, open the console, select them, then enter the "Show Inventory" console command. A list of everything in their inventory will appear. You can enter "Equip <item id>" to force them to equip the weapon. Use this same method to force them to equip the ammo in their inventory if necessary

Simply uninstall with your mod manager, but remember: the golden rule of modding is not to uninstall anything mid-game. This mod makes data changes that may be irreversible, so you may have to load a previous save that hasn't seen this mod.

Known Issues
- When using the plugin with laser muskets, Preston's companion weapon is only partially replaced. The model will be replaced into the Wattz Laser Gun. but the animations will not carry over. He will still use the default laser musket animations, which means the weapon model will look janky whenever he reloads. Everything else will be fine otherwise. He can still shoot and kill enemies and his weapon looks fine when not in the reloading animation. If that is a deal-breaker for you, use the plugin without changes to laser muskets

- Animations are currently broken whenever an NPC shoulders cover using their right shoulder. See Images tab
