Overview[edit]

The Gun Nut Perk is a requirement to craft certain weapon Mods, in particular mods for Guns.

Depending on how powerful the mod is, you will need a higher rank of Gun Nut in order to craft it.

Weapon type also comes into play when determining the perk rank needed.

For example, to put a Compensator on a Pipe Rifle you need Gun Nut rank 1, while to put a Recoil Compensating Stock on an Assault Rifle you need Gun Nut Rank 4
