# Hardballer

Judging by how ubiquitous the pitching machine trap is, I found it odd that nobody had ever tried to convert it into a man-portable weapon. Being hit by a baseball flying at speed would be quite devastating, so I decided to give it a try.

## Parts Used

I started with the legacy-content pitching machine trap and rearranged the pieces to orient the flywheels horizontally. I then added the handle from the Plasma Caster, and rigged the weapon to use the reload animation from the Gatling Laser.

## Perks and Challenges

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

## Usage Notes

Unfortunately, the New Vegas engine does not allow MISC items to be loaded into weapons the way Fallout 3 did with the Rock-It Launcher. This means a separate ammunition type must be crafted manually at a workbench. However, by using the console command set aaaGLOBHardballerAutoConvert to 1, the game will automatically convert any Baseballs and Pool Balls in the Player's inventory into the corresponding ammo type.

## Procurement

This weapon must be purchased from Dr. Quarton, and cannot otherwise be obtained without console commands.
