After the phase out of the N80 in 2051, the N99 sidearm became standard issue military gear. The N99 was known for its ability to survive in the harshest of conditions and did so in many tests, as the weapon was reliably able to be restored to working condition after an extended period of time exposed to hard elements and without maintenance.
The N99 proved to stand up to its claims and as a result is one of the most common weapons found in use in the wasteland. While many civilian weapons were ruined beyond use in the extreme conditions following the War, the N99 is commonly able to be easily restored to working order by anyone with even the most basic knowledge of firearm mechanics. Vault-Tec issued them to vault security units, as seen in Vault 101 where the security is only armed with N99's.
However, an N99 in poor condition can often deliver low target and armor penetration, frequent jamming, and greatly reduced accuracy. Fortunately, the weapon was produced in great numbers and many units are available for replacement parts.
Most N99s found in the Commonwealth are equipped with short barrels, while those in the Capital and Mojave Wastelands are equipped with long barrels.
An N99 10mm pistol equipped with a suppressor, which allows for silent kills if the target is killed with the first shot. This stealth feature comes at the cost of durability and damage, however a sneak attack always result in a critical hit, so the lower damage can be compensated for, especially with the Better Criticals perk.
Firing the silenced 10mm pistol will not increase your chance to be detected, unless the player has a very low sneak skill. It is therefore useful for killing weaker enemies like radroaches, mole rats, and sometimes even raiders, without drawing attention from other enemies. A high enough Small Guns skill makes it a useful close-quarters weapon in office building type settings, such as the Bethesda ruins and the Museum of History.
A fully-repaired silenced 10mm pistol can fire approximately 333 rounds, the equivalent of 28 reloads, before breaking. This is around 223 rounds fewer than the standard 10mm pistol.
