The Institute laser gun is a weapon in Fallout 4. Variants include the Institute pistol and the Institute rifle.

BackgroundEdit

The Institute designed their own laser weapons system from the ground up. The weapon appears rather large and bulky compared to the pre-War laser gun and has less damage, but in return it has a faster fire rate. Institute lasers are standard-issue gear for synths, Coursers, and scientists. Almost all synth soldiers carry the weapons, but once in a while, one might instead be carrying a regular ballistic firearm such as a Combat rifle or a Shock baton.

CharacteristicsEdit

This weapon has a similar overall function and appearance to the regular laser gun, and is commonly carried by members of the Institute and by synths. Compared to similarly equipped laser guns, Institute lasers offer a superior rate of fire at the cost of per shot damage. It is lighter than the standard laser gun and made of plastic. Its beam, when fired, appears blue instead of red. If you choose to scrap a standard version of this item you will receive four plastic. Due to the low amount and value of the materials acquired from scrapping, it is recommended to sell rather than scrap.

Institute weapons take up an inordinately large amount of the screen in first-person view, which may obstruct vision of one's surroundings.

The Institute laser has the lowest damage-per-shot of all weapons that use fusion cells, however, it makes up for this shortcoming by having a high damage-per-second rating. If ammo is abundant and/or one is partial to automatics or non-VATS based gameplay, the Institute laser excels in combat.
