Hi. I'm trying to figure out if there's a way for a weapon to use up more than one round of ammo per shot. For example, say a weapon has 10 rounds, you fire once and you have 8 rounds left. Why? well I'm trying to make a weapon that uses 2 rounds for a more powerful shot. It's similar to but not like the legendary "Two Shot", because that does fire 2, but as far as I'm aware only uses 1 round.

 

Basically I'm trying to get the Two Shot to actually use two rounds instead of one.

Heyas Borjoyzee :smile:

This is an interesting idea that you are working on.  It sounds kinda like a double barrel shotgun, but firing both shells down the same barrel.

By trying to do this via a straight up .esp file, the game doesn't have the settings for it. :sad:  Only for how much what kind of ammo the weapon uses, how much it holds, stuff like that.

 

So what you would need to do, is create a script.  A code, that when the gun goes in to delete 1 of the particular ammo, it would delete 2 instead.

Sadly tho, myself, I know very, very little in the way of scripting for this game :sad:

Hey, thanks for the reply.

 

Yeah I like the DB shotgun analogy, explains it better :cool:

 

You're right as well I fear, there is no setting from what I saw looking in the weapons modding settings, keywords etc....I've been through them all and there's nothing. My own scripting knowedge is limited as well, so I'll have to put this on the back burner for now and get my weapon to use something else. I'll come back to it if something clicks. cheers :happy:
