As Well Tempered mentioned, guns do need maintenance. As long as a gun is decently maintained (cleaned, oiled) it should last for a long time. I guess maybe your head canon could be that between the harsh environment of the wasteland and maybe the ammo gaining some terrible corrosive qualities with age, guns just wear out faster. This wouldn’t explain why a sledgehammer would break after bashing up 100 lightly armored Raiders though.

Real guns do not fall apart like they do in the Fallout games. Nowhere close. And standard upkeep does not require scavenging parts from other guns. Just wiping it clean and putting oil on it to prevent rust.

It seems to make sense if you figure the guns are pre-war and have been laying there forever. Though in that case, it may be somewhat questionable for them to work at all.

Exactly. I was trying to come up with a way to excuse item repair as basic maintenance, but with the whole cannibalizing like items to repair a given item, I just couldn’t. Doesn’t make sense any way you slice it. sad.gif

Indeed.

When I made a special assault rifle for my Lone Wanderer Cho (who lives in The Citadel) I did boost its Durability (whatever that stat is called).

Because I figured here we have THE Citadel, which I assume has some sort of access to better materials, better scematics, whatever. Maybe they've retrieved FBI archives and other classified documents, whatever. So in that case, I did make his gun last longer. I also added a respawning "Gun Cabinet" which adds a new Citadel Assault Rifle every 3 days. I figure those Scribes or whomever are constantly working to improve my character's Lone Wanderer experience, since he IS the only one who actually goes above and beyond in most cases. whistling.gif

But for the average weapons we find in the Wasteland, those are all mutts. They're piecing crap together with crap. biggrin.gif I know nothing about guns, but as Clavier says, they do need frequent maintenance. That's the angle I like preserving, even if degradation speed is a bit untruthful.

It is a bit annoying that they degrade so quickly, otherwise I don't mind it too much actually. Game gotta game, you know? Adds some tension as mentioned as well as something to always be wary of. At least it makes more sense when armor degrades as it constantly takes hits and always needs repair.

I wonder where Badda-Tish (OP of this thread) is. Always fun to bump a thread which was made in the early days of this site ...
