Shotgun shell is a ballistic ammunition type in Fallout 76.


The following section is transcluded from 12 gauge shotgun shell. To modify, please edit the source page.

The most common type of shotgun shell, 12 gauge rounds are the de facto standard for shotguns across the wasteland, corresponding to an 18.53mm/.729 bore. Purebore ammunition is the most popular and most durable shell brand to hit the wastelands after the Great War, loaded with leaden pellets that can take down humans, mutants, and monstrosities with equal ease. All shells have a print reminding the users that they are not for use by children under 3. Shoot responsibly![1]


Shotgun shells are a common sight in Appalachia, and are are used by every shotgun in the region. They are also among the more bulky small arms munitions, weighing a tenth of a pound each.
