How to get the Gauss shotgun in Fallout 76
Fallout 76 is packed with weapons for you to track down and build. While some of these weapons can be bought, traded, or found in the wild, some of them must be built. The Gauss shotgun is a powerful weapon that strikes fear in many in the Wasteland, but obtaining it is not the easiest task. Prepare to search for a while. This guide will show you how to get the Gauss shotgun in Fallout 76.
Where to find the Gauss shotgun in Fallout 76?
Few would say that the Gauss shotgun in Fallout 76 isn’t the most powerful weapon in its class. This powerful firearm can easily tear through enemies if your build is strong enough. Of course, getting your hands on it will require a bit of work, and it won’t be easy. It all starts with accumulating reputation points for the settler faction after completing the Wastelanders quest line.
Farming reputation for the settlers is pretty easy. All you have to do is complete missions for them every day. When you reach the rank of Ally with the Settlers, you can purchase the Guass shotgun blueprints from Samuel. He can be found leaning against the sign at the back of the foundation. Samuel sells the plans for the Gauss shotgun for 500 gold bars.

Once you have the plans for the Gauss shotgun, you can build it at any gun workbench in Appalachia using the following materials:
- 14 aluminum
- 6 circuit
- 2 legendary modules
- 15 screws
- 4 silver
- 4 sources
- 7 steel
- 8 wood
As you can see, the Shotgun requires quite a few materials to build, just like the Gauss Minigun, but it’s well worth it for the amount of power it packs. After building your first Gauss shotgun, you can get the weapon as a reward for completing missions and events. You can also get it as a legendary weapon from the supplier.
