I feel kinda stupid for asking such a silly question, but it doesn't really make sense to me. In my adventures in the Commonwealth I've found a few legendary weapons, with the trait of having unlimited ammo capacity. Though when I equip them and fire them, they ultimately run out of ammo like any other gun. Does the unlimited part refer to the amount of bullets in your current clip or does my game have some sort of bug?

What I did notice was the fact they occasionally 'regenerate' some ammo. e.g. I got 100 bullets for a 10mm pistol, I shoot some things and end up at 80 bullet in my current clip. A few minutes later I get 10 extra bullets, I reload and have 90 bullets again. At least I think it happens like that. Now that I type it out, I might also have just picked those bullets up. Can't be sure.

  • The wording "Unlimited ammo capacity" defiantly implies that it's more of an unlimited clip, than an unlimited supply of ammo. But I have no evidence of either situation.

The "Unlimited Ammo Capacity" trait means that you have an unlimited clip so you will never have to reload the gun which can be really handy in certain situations.

As for the "regeneration" of ammo, you are likely just picking up the odd few rounds during your adventures.

    The "Bottomless Clip" perk sets your magazine size to the amount of ammo you have for the weapon. When you pick up ammo obviously you will have more than when the gun's mag size was set. This is why you do need to reload (Or reset the mag size) when you pick up more ammo. I can't remember the exact interactions for when you are above 999 ammo though. Commented Dec 12, 2015 at 19:04
