Behind the scenes

  • Based on the model name, magbguns, Milsurp was originally intended to temporarily increase Big Guns, but since Fallout: New Vegas combined Small Guns and Big Guns into just Guns the effect was changed accordingly to effect the new skill.
  • "Milsurp" is short for "military surplus", and is a term used for supplies used by the military, usually guns and ammunition, that is sold or disposed of by the military when no longer needed. Sometimes milsurp are collected by gun collectors and survivalists.
