Courier’s Stash (Xbox LIVE for 160 Microsoft points, PlayStation Network and Steam for $1.99) gives players immediate access to four content bundles previously available only through pre-ordering Fallout: New Vegas. The Caravan Pack, Classic Pack, Mercenary Pack and Tribal Pack each offer unique weapons, apparel and aid advantages that will help you throughout your journey.
Gun Runners’ Arsenal (Xbox LIVE for 320 Microsoft points, PlayStation Network and Steam for $3.99) increases the range of unique weapons, weapon mods, ammo types and recipes waiting to be uncovered in the vast Mojave Wasteland.
Embrace of the Mantis King! (above, and the exclamation point is required by contract) is a huge, mutated Mantis Gauntlet.
Did someone come across a Mantis King, kill it, and make this? Did someone raise a Mantis into a Mantis King specifically to make this? It’s a mystery for the ages.
All we know is that it’s awesome and a little gross.
On a particularly devastating kill shot, it plants an explosive charge onto the target.
You’ll know what’s coming when you hear the beeping. You’ve got two steps to get away.
Use them wisely.
Note: we’ve already repaired and re-sold this weapon three times for friends of people who didn’t heed the warning.
Speaking of art, our Katana (below) is such a dazzler that we’ve heard some enemies just stand and stare as the blade comes flying in (no guarantee implied). Custom options include an Authentic Blade (increases damage), Balanced Grip (increases attack speed), and Protective Sheath (increases condition).
Damage is much lower than a standard Power Fist, but when you’re hitting this fast, who cares? If you want something more customizable, pick up our GRA Power Fist. Chromed Tubes increase condition, High Cap Valves boost damage, and there’s even an option for Ported Chambers to modestly accelerate attack speed.
Both the Chainsaw (above) and Ripper can be customized with Carbide Teeth (increases damage) and a Heavy Duty Chain (increases condition).
Additionally, the normally hefty chainsaw can be lightened with the installation of an Alloy Frame.
Trust us. Gehenna (above) burns with a more intense flame than the standard Shishkebab and does a bit more base damage. In addition to hitting like a Brotherhood Paladin dropped off of a cliff, the Nuka-Breaker has a chance to electrocute its targets on impact. Maybe it’s overkill, but we don’t think that’s a bad thing.
