- Sheriff Earl Marion of Redding has one.
- Myron, in the Stables, also carries one.
- Random encounter press gangs around San Francisco will use these along with Glock 86 Plasma Pistols.
- With the AP Ammo, this weapon is surprisingly deadly. It's also very accurate, but ultimately you will want to use more interesting weapons like the Gauss Pistol.
- The Needler has an extremely high critical damage for the time you can first acquire it. Sniper Rifle criticals will go up to 80 damage, but the Needler will critical for 130-180 at a distance of five or fewer hex spaces.
