  • The Vault Boy image does not have a backpack, and he is facing to the right, unlike the Gatling laser Pip-Boy image, in which the Vault Boy has a backpack and is facing to the left.
  • The Sprtel-Wood 9700 is 3 pounds lighter than a normal Gatling laser. This gives it a greater advantage in Hardcore mode with more space for ammunition, and along with the Heavyweight perk, the weight drops to 7.5, making it lighter than a laser rifle, but slightly heavier than a recharger pistol.
  • When the lasers of the Sprtel-Wood 9700 hit something like a wall, they make a plasma-like effect.
  • The Sprtel-Wood 9700 synergizes greatly with the Light Touch, Laser Commander and Set Lasers for Fun perks, increasing the overall critical chance to 19% per beam shot, seeing as they are implemented after the Critical Chance Multiplier.
  • The numbers "9700" can be seen stenciled on the backpack.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Sprtel-Wood 9700 is an homage to Scott Sprtel, a medical student who died in 2003 in a biking accident, and Brian Wood, a game designer at Relic Entertainment who was killed in a traffic collision.[1]


  • Playstation 3Icon ps3 Xbox 360Icon xbox360 When scoring a critical hit on an enemy and the critical hit animation plays, the sound of the gun firing will still continue to play repeatedly until the gun is fired again.[verified]
  • PCIcon pc Playstation 3Icon ps3 Xbox 360Icon xbox360 Sometimes, if Gloria Van Graff is dead, Sprtel-Wood 9700 will not be purchasable from Vendortron.[verified]
  • PCIcon pc Use this fix in the console: startquest xx00093c, then resetquest xx00093c. This could also be done in reverse order.
  • Playstation 3Icon ps3 Xbox 360Icon xbox360 When you only have ammunition within your remaining magazine and none left, holding the trigger down till exhausting all rounds doesn't stop the weapon's looping sound animation and firing animation (though no lasers will fire out) until one lets go of the firing trigger.[verified]
  • PCIcon pc Playstation 3Icon ps3 Xbox 360Icon xbox360 Occasionally the gun may be sold by both Gloria Van Graff and the Gun Runners at the same time. Once the weapon is purchased from either vendor the other disappears from the other vendor's inventory. This seems to happen while participating in the quest Heartache by the Number without killing Gloria or Alice McLafferty. [verified]
