The N99 10mm pistol is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from 10mm pistol. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The large-framed, gas-operated N99 was selected as the standard issue conventional sidearm of the United States military, following the phaseout of the N80 in 2051. The long-barreled pistol remained in service for 26 years, until the Great War destroyed the United States. The pistol is designed to withstand the most extreme conditions, which was one of the requirements for a new service sidearm. It can also be repaired easily by anyone with even the most basic technical knowledge. This includes both clearing misfeeds[1] and restoring a unit to working condition after long exposure to elements without maintenance.[2]

These features also make it popular with wastelanders, who appreciate the ease of maintenance. It remains a common weapon, as even though many civilian units were ruined, they can easily be restored by anyone with some repair knowledge. Even damaged units can be used reliably, though they will offer subpar performance and jam frequently. The number of manufactured pistols means that parts are easy to come by, however.[2]

CharacteristicsEdit

Though it is easily obtained, the pistol is prone to breaking after a short period of use, so carefully-aimed shots are important. Its iron-sights are also slightly misaligned, with the front post being aligned slightly to the left of the center. However, it does benefit from being considered an improved holdout weapon, and can be concealed and taken into weapon-free locations with a Sneak skill of 50 or greater.


DurabilityEdit

The 10mm pistol can fire a total of about 395 standard rounds, the equivalent of 33 magazines, or 25 reloads when modded with extended magazines, from full condition before breaking.

Behind the scenesEdit

Was it a deliberate decision to make 10mm weapons very common in vaults and 9mm weapons common outside of them? It felt like 10mm weapons were more military or vault-tec issue while 9mm were civilian.
Joshua Sawyer: Yes. 10mm weapons seemed more "vaulty"/futuristic in my mind.

BugsEdit

  • Playstation 3Icon ps3 Sometimes when equipping a 10mm pistol modded with an extended mag, the mag may appear under the trigger. This bug can be fixed by re-equipping the weapon. [verified]
  • Playstation 3Icon ps3 Sometimes when you equip the 10mm pistol, the laser sight modification may not be activated. To fix this, simply un-equip the pistol and re-equip it. [verified]
  • Playstation 3Icon ps3 The weapon may also turn invisible while aiming down the sight. [verified]
  • PCIcon pc Playstation 3Icon ps3 Xbox 360Icon xbox360 If loading a saved game from the main menu in which you have the 10mm pistol equipped and drawn, the reload animation takes twice as long as normal. This can be solved by simply switching to another gun and then back again. [verified]

    Pek: "Sure, I guess. Can you fix it?"
    The Lone Wanderer: "Sure can. Here, just pull this back to clear the chamber."
