Small Arms is a weapon class in Wasteland 3 based on Small Arms skill.

Description[]

Small Arms have two subtypes: Handguns and Shotguns.

  • Handguns are accurate and quick, and deal solid damage to unarmored enemies, but have a hard time penetrating armor. On the plus side, if you want to quickly build your Strike Meter, they're a terrific choice!
  • Shotguns: You won’t do a lot of damage to single enemies with a shotty, but if you wanna hurt two or three at once, they’re the way to go. Everyone in front of you will catch some lead. They’re also great for blowing away enemy cover.

Attributes and skill[]

Recommended Attributes: Coordination, Awareness, Luck.

Small Arms skill provides following bonuses:

  • Handgun hit chance up to 30% at skill level 10
  • Shotgun hit chance up to 30% at skill level 10
