The broken laser rifle is a special, unobtainable version of the laser rifle.
On first glance, the broken laser rifle appears identical to a standard laser rifle, but for some unknown reason the weapon is inoperable. While the extent of what is broken about the rifle is not clear, it is sufficient to render it literally worthless, having no cap value. The weapon is also unable to be taken into inventory. Should the Courier attempt to do so within the Hidden Valley Bunker, a nearby scribe will comment "Good luck killing something with that. Thing's busted."
A second broken laser rifle can be found in the Stone Bones cave on the ground near the ammunition bench.
