The Cap Buster

This weapon is a deliberately-subversive desecration of an American icon, and a hearty F.U. on behalf of the gunsmith to everything the country stands for. It is loud, obnoxious, and not nearly as powerful or awesome as it thinks it is, but deals bonus damage to wealthy targets.

Visually, it was inspired by a similar weapon seen briefly in a scene from the 2017 film Ghost in the Shell.

Parts Used

I started with the .45 Auto Submachine Gun mesh from the Honest Hearts DLC and chopped it down, removing the stock, handguard and barrel, then attaching the muzzle and compensator directly to the chamber. I then added the cut-content Hunting Revolver Scope from the Gun Runners' Arsenal DLC.

Perks and Challenges

The following properties, perks and challenges apply to this weapon:

Usage Notes

This weapon deals an additional amount of bonus damage equal to the number of Caps in the target's inventory.


This weapon must be custom built to order by Vlad, and cannot otherwise be obtained without console commands.
