|For an overview of laser pistol models in the Fallout series of games, see laser pistol.|
|The following is based on information from Van Buren design documents and is not canon.|
The APOLLO laser pistol is a primary weapon designed and abandoned by Poseidon Energy that science-oriented characters in Van Buren could complete.
While it does not appear in the Van Buren tech demo, it is still present in the game files and can be spawned with the console command CreateEntity WeaponsAPOLLOLaserPistol.wea, but remains a non-functional weapon.
Behind the scenes
The weapon is named after the ancient Greek god Apollo, lord of the sun. He has also been known as the god of light, truth, prophecy, healing, plague, music, poetry, knowledge, and more.
The weapon may not be able to be loaded. Even with its maximum clip size of energy cells in the player's inventory, it will never even load them, always showing 0 ammunition in its clip.
