Big Guns is a weapon class in Wasteland 3 based on Big Guns skill.

Description[]

Big Guns have two subtypes: Heavy Machine Guns and Flamethrowers.

  • Heavy machine guns deal tons of damage and punch through armor with ease. Shooting them while moving, however, is almost impossible. They’re far too heavy and inaccurate. But with training they’re great for laying down covering fire.
  • Flamethrowers: Is there anything more badass than a flamethrower? No. There isn’t. One shot from a flamethrower can literally set a whole squad of bad-guys on fire. Of course it’s heavy and awkward to operate, but who cares? It’s a fucking flamethrower!

Attributes and skill[]

Recommended Attributes: Awareness, Coordination, Strength.

Big Guns skill provides following bonuses:

  • Heavy Machine Gun hit chance up to 30% at skill level 10
  • Flamethrower hit chance up to 30% at skill level 10
