The sonic emitter - tarantula is an
Energy Weapons pistol with bonus damage against robots and power armor wearers, as well as a unique "critical strike incendiary" effect which ignites the target on a critical hit. This modulation of the sonic emitter has a purple oscilloscope.
As a one-handed energy weapon, the sonic emitter - tarantula is affected by
The Professional perk and counts as an improved holdout weapon.
When scoring a
Critical Hit, the enemy will catch on fire, and may die instantly. The unique incendiary effect is affected by the Pyromaniac perk.
The sonic emitter - tarantula can fire a total of about 495 times using standard cells, the equivalent of 62 reloads, from full

The holotape for the modification,
Audio Sample - Giant Tarantula, can be found in Higgs Village inside of house #00, on an inactive terminal on the second floor.
The critical hit incendiary effect creates a small fireball around the target, igniting nearby non-player characters.
As with all sonic emitter modulations, it is necessary to install the
Blind Diode Jefferson's personality chip before this remodulation can be applied to the sonic emitter. With the perks Pyromaniac and
Laser Commander this weapon causes very high damage, and one of the critical incendiary effects is an autokill which explodes the target into fiery giblets. All cyberdogs are affected by the additional EMP damage done by this weapon.
