Where to find the Gauss Shotgun Plan in Fallout 76?


The Gauss shotgun plan in Fallout 76 isn’t obtainable by finding it in the game world. You can acquire it by crafting it at a weapons workbench. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Learn the Gauss shotgun plan: This plan can be purchased for Gold Bullion from Minerva, a traveling vendor who appears at Crater or Fort Atlas every week. Her inventory rotates so you might need to wait a bit for her to sell the plan.
  2. Gather the crafting materials: Once you have the plan, you’ll need to collect the materials required to craft the Gauss shotgun. These materials typically include steel, screws, circuitry, and other common components.
  3. Craft the Gauss shotgun: Head to a weapons workbench and craft the shotgun using the plan and the required materials. Since it’s a legendary weapon, it will automatically be a one-star, two-star, or three-star legendary variant with random legendary effects.
