Add this one to the list of "things we want when mods come to Fallout 4 on consoles": Modder LucasGod has created "Any Mod Any Weapon," which removes all in-game weapon mod restrictions, letting you attach - you guessed it - any mod to any weapon. It's a mod for mods! Mod-ception!
The good news is you could, for example, make a rapid-launching rocket launcher, or a gatling gun that shoots radioactive lasers. The not-so-great news is that the mod doesn't limit options to just you, meaning some enterprising raiders out there might suddenly ascend to godhood, cackling maniacally as they launch heat-seeking mini-nukes. As LucasGod puts plainly on the download page: "It's not balanced, not immersive … but it's really fun!"
A tip then, if you want to become the only wasteland wanderer with absurd weaponry: install the mod, create what you want, and uninstall it. Your franken-weapon will live on, while the mod's uninstall will prevent others from following suit. Just do me a favor when you're altering your weapon: don't hold back.
