A weapon that's easy to fall in love with, but difficult to trust. "It" speaks to the user using its unique weapon AI.
When picking it up, you are asked to choose between one of two fire modes:
- Puppy-Loving Pacifist (Limbs Only Mode)
- Stone Cold Killer (Headshot Only Mode)
After 50 Kills and a few (around 5) days have passed, Skippy will initiate a dialogue and permanently switch to "Puppy-Loving Pacifist" if the Player selected "Stone Cold Killer" when finding Skippy. If the Player selected "Puppy-Loving Pacifist", Skippy will keep his current fire mode if "Killing is wrong" is chosen, or change to "Stone Cold Killer" if "I don't know" is chosen.
The kill count can be paused indefinitely by installing either the PAX Mod on Skippy or the Target Analysis Mod into your Optics Cyberware.
Skippy can sometimes make decisions on his own. Some of the random actions he performs can be:
- Firing at enemies without user input (especially from stealth).
- Firing when switching to aim-down-sight outside of combat.
- Making all projectiles miss enemies for the rest of the combat encounter.
- If you decline to bring Skippy to Regina during the Machine Gun side job, his dialogue will change and will only consist of him Screaming "no" and "bad user" until he is returned.
- Skippy can only be displayed in the stash if you decline to bring him back to Regina during the Machine Gun side job. There is no way to display it otherwise, and you can not change your decision.
- When all items in your inventory are removed in Sweet Dreams, re-acquiring the gear does not remove the quest flag on Skippy if it has one.
- When first acquiring Skippy, there is a part in the dialogue where its AI will begin humming the song 'Disturbia' by Rihanna.
