A modified plasma gun used by the Appalachian Enclave. It has a distinct black and silver chassis as well as opaque side ports with a cascading, oxidation-like cyan pattern in place of visible green plasma.
Compared to a normal plasma gun, the Enclave variant deals increased damage and is slightly more accurate. Mods for the gun can be difficult to obtain since only one weapon mod, the Prime Capacitor, can be learned. Many other mods can only appear as loose weapon mods, which can either be bought, found, or received as quest rewards. Some mods do not appear in the game at all. The vast majority of mods, however, are unobtainable as loose mods and can only be found pre-attached to guns found in the world.
