An addon that increases the variety of shotgun ammo
FOR ANOMALY 1.5 BETA 2.4 ONLY
Welcome back Stalkers. This is my fourth addon for Anomaly and boy is it a fun one. So let's get to the good bits already.
What is this? This is an addon that replaces all the old and damaged shotgun shells with brand spanking new dakka for your favorite blunderbluss.
So, what's new? Boy, am I glad you asked.
Let's get the common rounds out of the way first, shall we?
Dart and Zhekan (Slug) rounds remain unchanged.
Standard Buckshot has been renamed to #00 Buckshot to more accurately reflect it's RL counterpart.
#00 Buckshot fires 9 7mm steel balls. Most commonly used in deer hunting it's been adopted by most users for its Home Defense capabilities. Your standard shotgun round seen in most movies and video games.
Old Buckshot has now been replaced with #4 Buckshot.
#4 Buckshot fires 21 (Yes, TWENTY-ONE) 6mm steel balls. It has a slightly larger spread than standard Buckshot. While not being a bad round for self-defense, it's more adept at taking down mutants than other Stalkers.
Damaged Buskshot has been replaced with Birdshot.
Birdshot when fired releases a cloud 72 4mm pellets over a fairly large area. Good for blanketing an area where you think a Bloodsucker might be hiding. Due to the sheer number of pellets it can fire you can easily cause a target to loose large amounts of health thru sheer bleed effects.
Damaged Slugs have been replaced with #000 Buckshot.
#000 Buckshot is considered to be the premium home defense round as it fires 8 8mm steel balls. Very damaging to soft tissue while still having some armor penetration at close range.
Now, let's get to the good stuff aka the "Exotic" rounds. These rounds are only avaiable upon reaching a high enough goodwill with certain traders, only come in packs of 5 and are significantly more expensive than the "common" rounds.
Old Dart rounds have been replaced with Bolo rounds.
Often considered a novelty round. It fires 2 .58 caliber (14.7mm) steel balls connected via a steel wire. The design idea IRL is to have at least one of the balls lodge into a target and have the second ball swing around and lodge elsewhere in the target with devestating effects. Very lethal. Good armor piercing capabilities.
Old Slugs have been replaced with Dragon's Breath rounds.
Aaah, an old favorite of shotgun enthusiasts. Often dismissed as a novelty round this ammunition has been tweaked to fire 36 white hot shards of magnesium burning at over 2,000°C (That's 4,000°F for you non-standard guys). Absolutely devestating to just about everything.
Damage Dart rounds have been replaced with Flechette rounds.
Ah, Flechette. A personal favorite of mine. Affectionately called "The Devil's Toothpick". This round fires 24 sharpened tungsten rods at a target capable of shredding most body armors. Very effective against heavily armored targets.
Same as any Stalker mod just drag and drop the gamedata folder and overwrite any existing files.
