    Ok, I love this weapon... I just can't find it!

    I've finished Fallout 2 and now I'm in a mood of wandering the wastes Stampede style, and want a cool gun for it, and I just love the .223 Pistol (You gotta love that BANG it makes) and I used to have one, but now I'm looking for one for ages and simply can't find it...


    IF anyone knows hoe I can get one please do tell me

    I think theres this guy in klamath in the lower-left corner of the map that you have to do a quest for to get it. I too love that gun, one of the best handguns in the game.

    No.. You're thinking of the Hub in Fo1.

    Go the Redding and take the jobs the sheriff gives you. He will tell you to kill a guy named Frog (or something). When you've killed him you'll encounter his brothers in the wasteland. You'll find her in these encounters.

    If I'm not mistaken, you can also buy one in the gun shop outside NCR.

    I think I found one in New Reno, too... It's a sweet gun, but I ended up liking the .44 magnum w/ speed loader even more.

    You can even find it in common random encounters either in normal terrain or in caves. I had too much of these guns to carry though my luck was 4.

    I happened to run into one the other day when I was playing. Go to Vault 15, take the elevater to the 2nd floor, goto the room in the upperleft(the room with the king-size bed), and check the desk. The pistol you want should be in there.

    This gun is frequently found in the proximity of New Reno. Stroll about the area until you encounter "A gang", then fight them. There'll be 2 thugs with flamers, 2 thugs with 14mm pistols and two (the male-in-leather-jacket model) with the desired pistols.

    Hi!

    Well the .223 Pistol is VERY rare in both FO1 and FO2.
    I think there is only one to be found in FO1 at all....

    The 14mm Pistol howewer can be found on KAGA in his 2nd Stage Encounter, if he doesnt flee before, that is....



    Greetings

    I disagree. While the .223 Pistol is indeed unique in Fallout, it is not that uncommon in Fallout 2. It's quite easy to acquire it at a relatively early stage, from the gangs or from traders who I believe have them in their selections. (San Fran?) The same goes for the 14mm , which is even more common.

    Kaga encounter? Are you talking about the encounter that hadn't made it's way to the original Fallout 2? Has someone put a mod/patch together that enables this specific series of encounters?

    Huh?
    It did on mine.
    Which version/patch were you playing?

    I think some versions of (Celestial's?) patch had various weapon sounds changed, but this was later abandoned

    The .223 pistol in my unpatched/officially patched game (UK version) had the huge bang, but in the unofficially patched game, it was quieter.

    Ok, who is KAGA anyway? I've never heard of him.

    IIRC, he was a rival to the chosen one in FO2, but never made it into the game.
    There are supposedly several encounters that you could have involving him.
    Jona0 is making a mod that includes him.
