The Plasma Defender is an energy weapon added with the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.

Background

This section is transcluded from plasma pistol. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The Austrian-made Glock 86 plasma pistol (also referred to as the Plasma Defender[1]) was designed before the Great War by the Gaston Glock artificial intelligence. It shoots a small bolt of superheated plasma and is powered by a small energy cell.[2]

Characteristics

The Plasma Defender is a powerful energy-based pistol that fires superheated bolts of green plasma. It is able to punch through most creatures and low to medium-level types of armor with ease.

Specially constructed by the Gun Runners, this Plasma Defender is identical to the standard model in both textures and stats,[3] the main difference being this variant can accept weapon modifications.

Durability

The Plasma Defender can fire a total of about 495 times using standard cells, the equivalent of 31 reloads, or 16 reloads when modified with the hi-capacity terminal, from full condition before breaking.
