Gauss pistols are hand-held weapons utilizing electromagnetic coils to propel metal slugs at extremely high velocities. They fire an incredibly small 2mm round at speeds just under the speed of light, tearing through just about any armor.
PPK12 Gauss pistolEdit
The PPK12 is a weapon of German design and the only type of Gauss pistol seen in the Fallout games. It has a very compact design, a very fast rate of fire but a ridiculous amount of recoil, unlike the more stable M72 Gauss rifle.
Unamed Gauss pistolEdit
An unamed Gauss pistol was going to appear in Van Buren.
