The plasma caster is a powerful energy weapon similar in fire rate and range to the ballistic Gatling gun. The plasma caster deals considerably more damage than other energy weapons but suffers from a low magazine size and fire rate. It can be further upgraded to drain enemy fusion cores with each hit. When crafted, plasma casters use legendary modules, becoming legendary weapons with randomly determined effects. As with other weapons only available after the main questline of Wastelanders, plasma casters cannot be traded, dropped, or sold to vendors.
