A high-tech infantry weapon, used by soldiers before the Great War.— In-game description

The laser rifle is a weapon that appears in Fallout Shelter.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from Laser rifle. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The AER9 was actually not the top laser rifle in service at the time of the Great War. The model line went up to the state-of-the-art AER12, which saw service in a handful of specialty units. The reason that the AER9 is much more commonly found is that it was much sturdier and more reliable than the models that followed.[1] A new model, the AER14, was in development prior to the war, with at least one working prototype surviving in Vault 22.

The AER9 features a titanium housed crystal array which proved to withstand long years of exposure to the elements much better than the gold alloy housing of the later models. As a result, the crystal arrays stayed focused within operating parameters, rather than falling completely out of focus like the newer models.[1] Power is drawn from microfusion cells and processed through a wave/particle diverter manufactured by General Atomics International. The diverters are protected by a carbon-fiber housing, preventing frequent malfunction, but when a diverter fails the weapon becomes unusable.[2]

As with all energy weapons, the AER9 can suffer from poor performance if not properly maintained. The crystal arrays and non-mechanical components are delicate and if not properly serviced can lead to a loss of beam intensity, overheating, and energy regulation failure.[1]

CharacteristicsEdit

The laser rifle is a laser gun featured in Fallout Shelter that uses microfusion cells to produce ammunition. Dealing a minimum of 12 damage per attack, it has the second lowest damage output for an energy rifle in the game.
