The 5.56mm pistol is a weapon added with the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.

CharacteristicsEdit

The 5.56mm pistol is the base variant of That Gun. When compared to That Gun, it is cleaner, has a more intact black finish, two small red LEDs on the side, and a large pale green LED on the back. Just like That Gun, the 5.56mm pistol is a heavily modified, pared-down .223 pistol, successor to the same weapon from Fallout and Fallout 2. It weighs a hefty 5 pounds and has a motorized cylinder and crane for quicker shooting and reloading than a typical revolver. The green light on the left side turns yellow while reloading, then turns green and makes a ringing noise once the weapon has reloaded. The two variants of this weapon share the capability to use dedicated armor piercing rounds, a trait which is unique among pistols.

Unlike That Gun, the 5.56mm pistol is considered an improved holdout weapon, and thus can be concealed with a Sneak skill of 50 or higher.

Along with its unique variant, it is the only pistol in the game that loads armor piercing ammunition that doesn't require the Hand Loader perk to fabricate.

DurabilityEdit

The 5.56mm pistol can fire a total of about 870 standard rounds, or 174 reloads, from full condition before breaking.

NotesEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

Like its unique variant That Gun, the 5.56mm pistol is modeled on the pistol used by Rick Deckard, the main character of the film Blade Runner. This version differs considerably in proportions, and lacks the bolt handle, ejection port, and second trigger.
