Plasma pistol (Fallout 1/2/Tactics)
The Austrian-made Glock 86 plasma pistol 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.
Plasma pistol (Fallout 3/New Vegas)
This plasma pistol has five tributary energy arcs connected to a central cathode, and the cathode functions as a point of focus, or the barrel. The energy is projected forward and forms a plasma pinch; though rather slow, the pinch carries high levels of both thermal and kinetic energy.

The Plasma Defender has a high rate of fire and a relatively small spread. The pistol uses small energy cells with a capacity of 32 rounds.
Plasma gun (Fallout 4/76)
This plasma weapon is similar in appearance to previous game's, though it differs highly in functionality. It is highly modular, being available in pistol, rifle, scattergun, sniper and flamethrower configurations. Unlike other plasma weapons, it utilizes plasma cartridges for ammunition.
