Background[edit | edit source]
The AEP7 laser pistol was put into service to replace the AEP5 model. With a generous battery size, tight shot grouping at range, resilience to extended use, and fairly decent damage output, it is a very good choice for a sidearm and is used extensively in this role by the Brotherhood of Steel and the Enclave in the Capital Wasteland.
As the successor to the AEP5, it boasted a redesigned focusing crystal pattern, an improved photonic focusing chamber, and selectable laser focus, wavelength, pulse energy and repetition rate. In addition, it was lighter and less bulky than its predecessor and was perceived as a step toward replacing the N99 10mm pistol with a laser weapon as the standard issue sidearm for military forces.
The AEP7 was produced in large numbers thanks to newly developed manufacturing technologies in the United States, although logistics and supply issues (caused by prolonged war with China) prevented its wide-scale deployment.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The Smuggler's End is a laser gun that uses energy cells as ammunition. Dealing a minimum of 7 damage per attack, it has the highest damage output for an energy pistol in the game.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The description and name of this weapon is a reference to a character in the movie franchise Star Wars. The character, Han Solo, is a smuggler that uses a laser blaster as his primary weapon. The first part of the description, "From dusty cantinas..." refers to one scene where Han Solo is cornered in a cantina on a desert planet by a bounty hunter looking for him, where he famously uses his blaster to escape.
