A lot of the gear you find in the wasteland has seen better days. Take a gander at the weapon condition table to get a taste of how it all works.

I played around with a lot of different effects for poor weapon condition. Ultimately I decided accuracy penalties and reduced range (which is a form of an accuracy penalty) were the way to go.

The failure chance is a natural attack roll with the weapon. If your attack is in that range, the weapon is reduced one grade in weapon quality.

So even a brand new weapon will deteriorate over time.

it'd be kind of cool (cinematically) if a gun exploded when you tried to fire - - I can see where that would suck during play

If a weapon in Very Poor condition rolls its failure chance that's exactly what happens. The weapon is destroyed and you take damage as if you had shot yourself with it.
