I finally finished up finalizing this mod. Time to play the game with only darts!

This mod adds recipes to craft a Dart Rifle, plain darts, and 17 other dart types. All crafted at Workbench.

Adds a merchant, named Merchant, to 188 Trading post who sells darts and components for crafting the darts and the rifle. Can occasionally sell a pre made Dart Rifle too.


Version 1.01
Added a new recipe to get Empty Soda Bottles from Empty Nuka Cola Bottles


Cheating: 
There are 2 new trunks in the game, initially empty, one close to the 188 Merchant and one in Doc Mitchell's backyard, each have a switch, with each activation of the switch, the corresponding trunk gets one max condition dart rifle and 50 of every dart type.

Crafting:
You need one scrap metal to make 10 plain darts, and 25 of those for each dart type, as well as other necessary components, an ingame note which can be found on the newly added workbench to 188 Post lists the materials and effects of each dart type:

The Note:

So, here's a quick reminder on how this works:
I often have some leftover darts to sell. Sometimes I make the Dart Rifle too, which I'm willing to sell for the right price. But if you're making them yourself, I've written down the components necessary as well as what each of the dart types actually do.

Dart Rifle:

Repair 45 required
1x Varmint Rifle
2x Scrap Metal
1x Fission Battery
2x Duct Tape
1x Wonderglue
1x Weapon Repair Kit
1x Varmint Rifle Nightscope

Since it's not shooting bullets, the Dart Rifle is silenced so it's a viable weapon for sneaking.

Plain Darts (10): 

Repair 10 required
1x Scrap Metal

These are as effective as pinching your enemies by themselves. So don't go wasting them by using directly with the Rifle.
Medicine 45 required for every other dart type

The Endangerol Dart seems to not effect enemies DT, not sure why.
The Venom and Venom 2 seem to stack.
One of each larva dart effects can stack on the same target. So you can hit someone with one of each larva darts and have them spawn all larvas on death.
