Fallout 76 Steel Reign introduces Face Breaker and Pepper Shaker as new weapons. Face Breaker is a Legendary Power Fist and Pepper Shaker is an automatic heavy shotgun. Face Breaker is an upgraded version of a normal Power Fist. Although both Legendary Power Fist and normal Power Fist cannot be used along with power armor. Face Breaker is a powerful close-quarters fighting weapon for any build that relies on Unarmed damage to survive. The standard Power Fist is available at level 30. You can get two further upgrades at levels 40 and 50. Face Breaker, being a Legendary Power Fist, works in the same way as the other power fists in the game.
Grahm’s Meat Cook is the only place to get the Plan for Pepper Shaker as a rare reward. After this, you can craft it at a weapons workbench or get it as legendary drop loot. You can trade it with other players, but note that cannot receive the explosive legendary mod. When you use the Pepper Shaker, it inflicts health rubberbanding on your target. You can use Shotgun shells by default in the Pepper Shaker. You can also upgrade it to employ fusion cells or plasma cartridges. There are also options to change the number of barrels along with the increased rate of fire, accuracy, and even the quantity of bullets. Also, make sure to equip it with a better gunner sight for better aim when shooting down sights.
The Pepper Shaker spins up for a second before releasing shotgun bursts of eight bullets mechanically. You can use it as a heavy gun or a shotgun. It will also benefit from any perk associated with either weapon class. The outgoing damage is divided amongst the number of projectiles, as it is with all multi-projectile weapons. Each pellet will cause 25 damage if the Pip-Boy damage reaches 200.
