Improved Minigun – Let’s make miniguns great again
What does this mod do?
This mod changes the base damage of the minigun to 12 and adds a receiver option allowing you to switch between 5mm rounds and 7.62mm rounds. It also adds 3 new barrel types based on the base barrels which further increase damage and add armor piercing properties.
It basically puts the minigun on a similar levell as the Gatling Laser.
Increases base damage from 8 to 12.
Adds a receiver option with 2 options:
5mm rounds (default)
7.62mm rounds. (+50% damage)
Adds a new barrel called Advanced Barrel that increases damage by 30% and armor piercing by 30%
Adds a new barrel called Advanced Accelerated Barrel that increases damage by 40% and armor piercing by 50%
Adds a new barrel called Advanced Tri Barrel that increases damage by 75% and armor piercing by 40%
Adds the new options to the leveled list so enemies can spawn with them as well.
A separate file is added which contains all of the above but also the following changes:
Vertibirds (non player) have their damage set from 5 to 30 and have an advanced barrel as opposed to a normal barrel
Vertibirds (player) have their damage set from 25 to 30 and have an advanced barrel as opposed to a normal barrel
An optional file is available for those who wish 7.62mm ammo is available in the Commonwealth and not just the expansion Nukaworld. This adds 7.62mm ammo in a similar ammount as 5mm ammo to vendors such as Cricket, KLEO and Arturo. Available after reaching level 24.
Due to the receiver options with 7.62mm ammo Nuka World is required for this mod. I may make a non-Nuka World variant if there’s requests for it.
If the mod is installed in an active game the new receiver for 5mm is not installed in existing miniguns, but they will remain operational with 5mm ammo. New weapon spawns will have the receiver option for 5mm as a default installed.
