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

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from Laser rifle. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The AER9 was actually not the top laser rifle in service at the time of the Great War. The model line went up to the state-of-the-art AER12, which saw service in a handful of specialty units. The reason that the AER9 is much more commonly found is that it was much sturdier and more reliable than the models that followed.[1] A new model, the AER14, was in development prior to the war, with at least one working prototype in Vault 22.

The AER9 features a titanium housed crystal array which proved to withstand long years of exposure to the elements much better than the gold alloy housing of the later models. As a result, the crystal arrays stayed focused within operating parameters, rather than falling completely out of focus like the newer models.[1] Power is drawn from microfusion cells and processed through a wave/particle diverter manufactured by General Atomics International. The diverters are protected by a carbon-fiber housing, preventing frequent malfunction, but when a diverter fails the weapon becomes unusable.[2]

As with all energy weapons, the AER9 can suffer from poor performance if not properly maintained. The crystal arrays and non-mechanical components are delicate and if not properly serviced can lead to a loss of beam intensity, overheating, and energy regulation failure.[1]

CharacteristicsEdit

Compared to the similarly modified Institute lasers, laser weapons offer superior damage with a slower rate of fire, however can do more DPS when fully modified. They can be found throughout the Commonwealth, but are particularly popular with the Brotherhood of Steel and the Gunners.

VariantsEdit

  • Old Faithful, a special laser pistol that does double damage if the target is at full health. It is sold by Arturo Rodriguez in Diamond City.
  • Survivor's Special, a special laser pistol that deals more damage the lower your health is. It is a potential reward for completing the quest The Lost Patrol. It is also possible to steal the item from Paladin Brandis, before the The Lost Patrol quest ends.
  • Good Intentions, a special AER9 laser rifle that, on critical hits, causes targets to frenzy. It is carried by Clint.
  • Prototype UP77 "Limitless Potential", a unique laser gun, can be found in a hidden room in the University Credit Union, which is opened by pressing a button inside a Master level safe. It has unlimited ammo capacity and never requires reloading, the magazine size is equal to all fusion cells currently in inventory.
  • Righteous Authority, a special AER9 laser rifle, given as a reward for completing the Call to Arms quest. Its critical hits do double damage and the critical meter fills 15% faster.
  • Wazer Wifle, a special AER9 Laser rifle with the same Never Ending property as the Prototype UP77 "Limitless Potential", it is given as a reward for completing three unmarked quests for Shaun after finishing the main quest with any faction.

LocationsEdit

Notes Edit

  • During the opening cutscene of the game, several U.S. Army soldiers are seen using the laser rifle.

Bugs Edit

  • pcIcon pc Occasionally the reload animation will not add a fusion cell, thus leading to an invisible magazine.[verification overdue]
