The plasma cutter is a melee weapon in Fallout 76, introduced in the Steel Dawn update.

Characteristics

A mobile cutting device with a modular assortment of "blades" formed by superheated plasma, electrical current, controlled flame or cryogenic material. The blade is retracted until emitted from the handle, unlike a physical blade of worked material. The weapon is activated by flipping the switch above the handguard and is enabled by a power source on the opposite side.
