About this mod

This mod adds a one-handed variant of the Grenade Rifle to the game, cut down to pistol-size.

Permissions and credits
*** This weapon is now also available in a Mega-Pack with my other standalone weapons ***

I was inspired to make this after seeing a real weapon used by the U.S. Navy SEALs' DEVGRU (aka SEAL Team Six) that they affectionately call the "Pirate Gun". It's basically a Vietnam-era M79 grenade launcher that's had its barrel cut down and the buttstock sawn off. So I did just that to the base game Grenade Rifle mesh, removing the leaf sight, cutting down the barrel and handguard, and reshaping the stock into a pistol grip. I then converted it to use the Sawed-Off Shotgun one-handed animations.

Gameplay-wise, the stats are more or less the same as the Grenade Rifle, but with greater spread, lower range and lighter weight. It cannot accept any mods, but counts as an improved holdout weapon, and can therefore be smuggled into casinos with a Sneak skill of 50 or higher. I've also added the weapon to all the appropriate form lists, so that the Pyromaniac and Demolition Expert perks will work as expected with this gun.


The weapon can be found in the same random loot drops as the Grenade Rifle, or you can craft it yourself at any workbench with a Grenade Rifle and a Repair skill of 35 or higher. Of course, if you're feeling lazy, you can always use the following console commands (Substitute ## with the number of the mod in your load order):

player.AddItem ##000ADE 1 ;Gives 1 40mm Grenade Pistol


Extract all the files in the archive to your New Vegas data folder (which is the same folder where FalloutNV.esm is located) and then enable the ESP either in your mod manager of choice, or under "Data Files" in the launcher that runs when you start up New Vegas.
