Background[edit | edit source]
The AEP7 laser pistol was put into service to replace the AEP5 model. With a generous battery size, tight shot grouping at range, resilience to extended use, and fairly decent damage output, it is a very good choice for a sidearm and is used extensively in this role by the Brotherhood of Steel and the Enclave in the Capital Wasteland.
As the successor to the AEP5, it boasted a redesigned focusing crystal pattern, an improved photonic focusing chamber, and selectable laser focus, wavelength, pulse energy and repetition rate. In addition, it was lighter and less bulky than its predecessor and was perceived as a step toward replacing the N99 10mm pistol with a laser weapon as the standard issue sidearm for military forces.
The AEP7 was produced in large numbers thanks to newly developed manufacturing technologies in the United States, although logistics and supply issues (caused by prolonged war with China) prevented its wide-scale deployment.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The AEP7 laser pistol (GRA) is an AEP7 laser pistol specially designed by Gun Runners to accept weapon modifications not available for the standard variant. The GRA AEP7 also features a different firing sound. It is also centered (as if it had iron sights) when aiming.
It is also an improved holdout weapon, so it can be concealed with a Sneak skill of 50 or above.
Durability[edit | edit source]
The laser pistol (GRA) can fire a total of about 995 times using standard cells, the equivalent of 34 reloads, or 25 reloads when modified with the recycler, from full condition before breaking.
