About this mod

This mod adds a craftable shortened Caravan Shotgun or Single Shotgun to the game with a custom mesh.

Permissions and credits
*** This weapon is now also available as part of my Standalone Weapons Mega-Pack ***

NOTE: The missing Pip-Boy icon for the Sawed-Off Caravan Shotgun can be fixed by moving "icons/pipboyimages/weapons/" into "interface/icons/pipboyimages/weapons/"

If you've been following my modding odyssey (modyssey?) at all, you've probably learned at least two things about me so far:
  1. I use the Marksman Carbine a lot
  2. I have an obsession with shortening things
I don't know if Freud would have anything to say about that, but here're a couple of sawed-off shotguns. I don't like the way the base-game Sawed-Off Shotgun from Fallout 3 looks, so I intended these to also serve as viable alternatives.

I started with the base game Caravan Shotgun mesh and simply cut down the barrel and handguard, as well as converting the stock into a pistol grip. I also lowered the screw sticking out of the back of the gun, so that you can use the front sight bead to aim, as is proper. For the Single Shotgun, the process was much the same, removing the stock and shortening the barrel.

Gameplay-wise, these weapons' stats are cloned directly from their respective parent shotgun, but with a lower weight and larger spread. I've also added them to all the appropriate form lists, so that all perks and challenges that affect shotguns, such as Shotgun Surgeon and And Stay Back will work as expected. These weapons also count as improved holdout weapons and can be smuggled into casinos with a Sneak skill of 50 or higher.

Since this is a modder's resource, you're free to use the meshes in your own mods, or take my plugins and modify them however you like to suit your purposes. You don't need to ask permission, but I would appreciate a credit and a link to your mod, so I can see what cool stuff people are doing with the things I make.

The weapons can be purchased from vendors across the Wasteland, or found in the same random loot drops as their parent shotguns. You can also craft it yourself at any workbench using the parent shotgun with a repair skill of 35 or higher. Of course, if you're feeling lazy, you can always use the following console command (Substitute ## with the number of the mod in your load order):

player.AddItem ##000ADE 1 ;Gives 1 Sawed-Off Caravan Shotgun/Sawed-Off Single Shotgun

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.
