My Fallout Collection DVD has arrived (but I didn't check mailbox until after dinner, foolish me). And I'm just starting FO1 as Max Stone. I've gone a little ways and I'm wondering: Is the shotgun even worth carrying around? It deals not alot more damage than my brass knuckles, has to reload every 2 shots, and can only be used once per turn as opposed to using my fists twice. What about targeted shots, do they work better than fists?
