The P94 is a bulky, industrial-grade energy caster powered by microfusion cells. The superheated plasma bolt forms in a special chamber, then sent down a superconducting barrel and stabilized by electromagnetic claws upon exiting it.
The Winchester P94 is a powerful single-shot energy weapon, roughly doubling the damage per shot of even the best conventional rifles available in the game, capable of taking out nearly any bipedal enemy with a single critical to the eyes. At 25 hexes, however, its range is only about half that of many other higher-end single-shot weapons.
With its stats unchanged from the predecessor, the Winchester P94 remains a potent energy weapon in Fallout 2, with the same drawback of a relatively short range. It averages 47.5 Hit Points per non-critical attack on unarmored targets, and 21.5 HP on medium-armored targets, sometimes exceeding 200 HP in a good Critical Hit.
A superior version of this weapon exists, with a hotwired plasma bolt chamber, called the turbo plasma rifle.

Behind the scenesEdit

- According to the Fallout demo, the plasma rifle was originally going to be called "Plasma Caster".
