I am talking about 2x Deathclaws minimum, which is still not much, but at least can do some damage if you aren't prepared.

I wish we could have Irradiated Deathclaws(from the Divide) or Tunnelers in The Thorn, would've made the place more interesting at higher level.

true, would've been nice if it didn't have an inherent difficulty cap when selecting enemies, otherwise it's pretty much a cake walk relatively speaking of course

It is actually only one specific guard, he guards the bank, I found out about him when I was trying to sneak into the bank unseen to grab my weapons for the "confrontation" part of the Gomorrah quest, since then, every time I replay NV, he is one of the first to die...

Because of their accuracy, the Dinner Bell or a normal Hunting Shotgun upgraded with the choke are better for getting insanely high damage non-VATS Sneak Attack Criticals from a relatively safe distance.

That's the thing, I play with mods, Weapon Mods Extended(or WMX for short) adds a choke to every shotgun in the game as a weapon mod(in fact, the mod adds 3 weapon mods to every weapon in the game, including different mods for GRA and non-GRA versions of weapons, for example, the GRA Anti-Meteriel Rifle keeps the muffled noise muzzle, the non-GRA gets a damage boost), so I am used to the Riot Shotgun being far better than the Dinner Bell.

Even though I normally preffer to play without the choke, since more spread=more enemies hit by And Stay Back! perk, with that and Shotgun Surgeon, I can easily take on a horde of Deathclaws using only a non-moded Caravan Shotgun, I can just use a silenced Sniper Rifle with hand-loaded ammo for sneak crits anyway.

I haven't run the numbers lately, but generally with the Better Criticals perk, a shotgun's Sneak Attack crit will always outdamage other ballistics, as long as it's done outside of VATS. Each pellet will get the bonus critical damage plus the sneak attack multiplier.

But, as for your mod, that sounds dumb as hell. If it adds a choke for the Riot, it should at least provide less of a bonus to accuracy than the Hunting's choke.

Same bonus for all shotguns, so the next one in the line completelly outclasses the previous one, there is even one for the Sawed-Off Shotgun and the Big Boomer, making it a very reliable sidearm, the other two weapon mods for the Riot are increased item HP and ligher weight IIRC, so only buff it gets is the decreased spread.

And to be honest, I am not really into the entire "get close" thing, I tend to max out damage perks and pick off enemies at distance, so much that I had a lot of trouble with Fo3 at first, it isn't nearly as Sniper-friendly as NV, then Sneak so nothing can see me, and Explosives simply because I love using the Red Glare, even if it isn't the best weapon.

the only places i can remember ever finding a riot shotty, are vault 34 and gun runners (at least with the gun runners dlc in there) felt easier coming in and picking the quest for dinner bell up after i had sweeped the deathclaw area past sloan, since that was the hardest egg to get, then breezing through the quest (you also get some caps too if i remember correctly)

There is a guard in Gomorrah that always spawn with the Riot Shotgun regardless of character level, you could get it at level 1, just sneak kill him(he is in a rather isolated area, so it isn't hard), grab it, and have fun.

I find Riot Shotgun is better IMO, being semi-auto and higher damage, and unless you focus on The Thorn's quest completelly, you can get it much earlier, Dinner Bell just pales in comparision.

NV is better than FO3 in just about every aspect. Gameplay is better, much more memorable characters, great DLC and even though the story is still better in FO3, I think NV's story quickly evolves from the "got shot in the face while delivering a package" shit to a great story with the MC being in the center of the storm that is the conflict between the NCR, the Legion and House's New Vegas.
