Thanks for the explanation. Main question though, is when does the shield icon break? If I got that right, then after that DR is nullified.
Just doesn't really make sense that my DR goes away while my armour is still in one piece.



A mod that lets you skin hillbillies sounds quite simple. Then a mod that gives you super power armour if you use it for crafting... too bad I'm no modder. Though it's a bit late for FO3 modding anyway.

Broken shield icon appears when you take more damage than you have DT. You don't lose your DR - this is after DR is taken into account.

Here's the whole breakdown of damage modeling, IIRC. Note that DR caps at 85%

Raw Damage * ((100 - DR)/100)) = D

Final damage = (D - DT) OR (D * 0.2), whichever is higher.

Aha, that explains it, thanks. Sorry for going off topic.

Just to tie it back- any ideas on changes they might make? IIRC, there were a lot of talks about the DR cap being easy to reach and (just like here) quite a few complaints about ridiculous DR on enemies at high levels.

F3 and NV had enemies erroneously give twice the DR they were meant to.

Personally I found automatic weapons outclassed by the high-damage per shot weapons pretty much all the time. Worked on everything, including armoured enemies, was more accurate, used less ammo. So making automatic guns more appealing would be nice.

Yep. Every NV playthrough I inevitably went into all-shotgun all the time once I got my first hunting shotgun. Absurd damage, great perks, a wide range of ammo to suit every situation (pulse rounds... *drools*), what's not to like?

I couldn't really find a good weapon until I found a weapon from Old World Blues that pretty much took energy weapons and went "You like energy weapons? Now THIS is an energy weapon!" and has pretty much become a staple with incredibly easy to find ammo.

In New Vegas if I have to fight I usually just pummel folk with the boxing gloves until they fall unconscious, pop some chems to keep alive and run away. No point killing when you don't have to.

I loved using the AMR with explosive ammo. Now THAT is a firearm.

The best automatic guns on NV were pretty good though. The 12mm submachinegun was pretty good, even tho the ammo was expensive and it looked ugly as hell, and the miniguns were pretty awesome. As for energy weapons, a fully modded or unique gatling laser did absurds ammount of damage to anything, specially with overcharged ammo.

I can't deny that the single shot weapons were great though. The dinner bell was my main weapon for almost the entirety of the game, since it could to decent damage to pretty much anything with the wide variety of (rather cheap) ammo and the crit rate and damage. Combined with the shotgun specific perks, you could kill pretty much anything, specially with the "And Stay Back!" perk. Legendary deathclaw? Pfffft.

I'm still extremely excited for the weapon customization.
It's like, got a shitty 9mm? With 100 metal and 150 fiberglass, plus a bottle, you've got a SNIPER RIFLE!
Plus a barrel and handle you can put on your other, shitty sniper rifle to make a .384 PISTOL!
Unless, of course, removed weapon parts aren't inventory items.
...I hope they are.

All I want for christmas is a fully auto AMR with exploding bullets.

I don't care if the ammo is expensive and the maintenance rate atrocious. Just gimme.

I mostly used energy weapons in my NV playthrough (didn't do any of the DLC, they didn't exist). Assassinated Caesar in his tent with a ballistic fist, though. While running around inside the tent, over tables, etc, to avoid being killed by his guards.
