Fallout Weapons in Real Life

Real Life Fallout Weapons

If you’ve ever found yourself dismembering raiders in The Capital Wasteland with projectile coffee mugs and railroad spikes only to long for a reality where these implements if destruction exist, you’re not alone! Fortunately for us, the super-nerd exists. The following are some of the wildest and most impressive recreations of our favorite Fallout weapons!

Power Fist

Kicking it off with Ol’ Fisto himself, the Power Fist has been a Fallout series name stay. While having a few alterations throughout the years the base idea has remained the same, hydraulic metal fist. Often accompanied by rusty barbs on the end, The power fist is a melee build best friend. This real life adaptation hits the nail right on the head! Modeled off the basic Fallout 4 style Power Fist, this iteration is designed using compression similar to the in game design in order to propel the fist forward. Even to those who aren’t familiar with the Fallout series, this thing is 100% badass!

Shiskebab

IGN

Continuing on with the both visually pleasing and lore accurate, This adaptation of the popular melee weapon, The Shiskebab, is constructed using almost the same concept design as in the game! Mirroring it’s virtual counterpart the real life model uses a motorcycle handle at the helm and three burners along the blade to deliver a scolding cut. Unlike the game design however, rather than having a front facing nozzle to expel the flammable gas, the creators opted for the more realistic and sensical fuel rod along the side witch is ignited by a park in the center of the blade. That being said, visually this model is still to the tee even going as far as to include the false nozzle and gas spicket.

Rocket Bat

Fallout 4’s creation engine gave a new lease to basic melee weapons the series had included from day one. With the inclusion of the revamped weapons workbench, and more damn aluminium than you’d ever thought you’d need in your entire life, normal everyday blunt objects became weapons of mass destruction. One of the simplest yet most satisfying of the bunch however is the Rocket Bat. With multiple alterations, the baseball bat changes from a throwaway scrap piece of wood to a jet propelled killing machine. Two rocket thrusters bolted to a swatter, what’s more american than that? The real life adaptation is not far off! While significantly smaller rockets are used, for obvious reasons, this adaptation is nearly spot on in every sense of the word!

Pipe Rifle

Unlike the previous entries this adaptation of Fallout 4’s Pipe Rifle does not follow the in game schematic. While the in game rifle is calipered in .38 rounds, the real life model is a simple BB build. While there is a significant difference in stopping power, this BB adaptation may be the most accurate and functional real life design, unlike some other cosplay designs. Hell, you’ve played the game, feels like a BB gun anyway.

Laser Rifle

Now unlike the rest of the entries on this list, this one does not come to us straight off the screen of post-apocalyptia. While this laser rifle is NOT inspired by the fallout series, it is the most accurate recreation of one. While other cosplays may have the dimensions and appearance, none can lay claim to actually being able to disburse a functioning beam. Now this is one badass piece of science!

Fallout: Lore Friendly Radio Mods

Lore Friendly Radio Stations in Fallout 4

If you are a die hard Fallout fanatic like me you may find the in game radio stations grow old rather quickly. Now, that’s not a knock on the stations themselves or the music included in them, in the last article we took the time to run down the Best and Worst radio stations and hosts the Fallout series has to offer. This time we are providing some lore friendly alternatives for your in game radio immersion.

Old World Tunes

nexusmods

From an app with a great idea, to an in game radio mod. Old World Tunes provides a lore friendly library of music that keeps the game fresh and lively. As someone who works for an oldies radio station, the developers went out of their way to put in the time and effort into selection not only tracks that are lore friendly to the time frame, but more so than not, thematically friendly as well, something that Bethesda Softworks also prides themselves on. Old World Tunes didn’t stop there though, going above and beyond their competitors, Old World Tunes went the extra mile by adding in Pre-War ads, Their own jock, and even voiced liner from Fallout 3’s Three Dog! As far as immersion and quality goes, Old World Tunes is the cream of the crop!

Tumbleweed Tunes

Nexusmods

The quintessential western equivalent of Old World Tunes, Tumbleweed Tunes provides calming and cinematic desert guitar tracks that’ll make you wish you were roaming the Mohave almost wishing for a nuclear winter. The calm slide guitar tunes provide the perfect ambiance for wandering the wastes and the perfect alternative for the rock and roll heavy in game stations. Hosted by radio jock, “Dusty Dude”, it’s almost as if Sam Elliot were narrating your atomic adventure. Dude regularly discusses his travels from The Mohave Wasteland of New Vegas to The Commonwealth. Tumbleweed Tunes is sure to provide hours of lore friendly enjoyment from your pip-boy or home radio!

Independence Radio

nexusmods

One of the most overlooked genres in the Fallout universe as well as life, unfortunately, is Folk music. Being one of the most prominent genres during the shaping of America and thriving during The Dustbowl era, Folk and Delta Blues would be thought to show more of a presence in post-apocalyptic society. Independence Radio provides over 100 tracks of the best dust bowl era instrumentals and lore friendly tunes. The perfect station to listen to while defending the wasteland or fortifying The Castle.

An Old World Radio Christmas

nexusmods

The boys are back at it again. The creators of Old World Tunes and Old World Radio are giving us all a gift this holiday season. An Old World Radio Christmas provides countless hours of lore friendly holiday music, more commentary about the holiday season, original tracks, commercials, and even… decorations. Listening to Old World Christmas almost makes you wish for a nuclear winter, but now you don’t have to! Fully decorated in game radios also enhance the holiday mood. Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year while remaining completely immersed in the lore!
