The second addition to the Select series, the Heavy Select Shotgun, a massive industrial shotgun found in Saugus Ironworks. Welcome to the Family.
Features some of the usual weapon modifications, paint jobs, and ammo types. The video below shows some of the paint jobs and ammo types. My favorite is the Institute paint with slugs!

This weapon was actually a community effort created by my YouTube subscribers and Facebook followers! We put together a big list of possible weapon options and everyone voted for their favorite features. We combined them to make up the idea of a pump action shotgun type of heavy weapon, high damage and low shotgun shell ammo capacity that doesn't need to spin up. We will definitely do it again so check out the links. See poll below to see the top voted for features this time around.

The weapon can be found inside Saugus Ironworks and is intended to work as another reward for doing the Out of the Fire quest at Finch Farm. If you've already done this quest, you can still retrieve it. It can be found in one of the catwalk rooms. The fifth photo above shows it's location in there. Note that it's best to grab it while not in combat...

Once obtained for the first time, the weapon and its ammo types can be crafted at a Chemistry Bench under HVY SEL SHOTGUN.

This weapon is best suited for use in Power Armor! You can use it outside of power armor but at the cost of mobility and reload speed...

For console commands: help select 4 weap

They can also be legendary, the Heavy Select Shotgun was added to the random Legendary roll. Starts showing up at level 30.

Installs like any other mod. No DLC or Mod requirements. Install with NMM/Vortex or enable through the Mods menu in Fallout 4.
Three versions available for download. ESL and ESP. As well as a Lite ESP, this is without the paint job options and lower quality texture compression, essentially the Xbox version.

Vanilla compatibility: This mod makes a persistent edit to the Saugus Ironworks interior but doesn't break precombined.
Mod compatibility: For mod patches, (Horizon, AWKR whatever lol, etc) contact me should you make your own for upload to the Nexus so I can post links below.
For Mod Authors: This mod uses 'HVSG' as the shorthand for all form ID's and file paths.
