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

10mm pistols are sidearms using the 10mm ammunition that was common before the Great War. They were used extensively by the Bureau of Alcohol, Drugs, Tobacco, Firearms and Lasers, while in the military such pistols were being phased out in favor of energy weapons.[Non-game 1] Their ruggedness, reliability and firepower made them a popular choice among wastelanders and thus a staple of wasteland firefights.[1]


The 10mm pistol is a semi-automatic magazine loading handgun featured in Fallout Shelter. Dealing a minimum of 2 damage per attack, it has the second lowest minimum damage output for handguns in the game, just above the .32 pistol and its variants.

In Fallout Shelter: The Board Game it increases your rolls when fighting by one, but unlike most similar item cards does not require you to exhaust (tap) the card, allowing its use multiple times.
