LAER(全名为Laser Assisted Electrical Rifle 雷射輔助电動步枪) is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


LAER有点像是现有的几种能量武器的结合。它有着脉冲枪式的枪管,激光步枪式的枪托,自动充能步枪式的电容器,以及像电浆步枪一样装在枪身底部的电池匣。很低的能源消耗却能换来很高的伤害(on par with the plasma caster) ,使得这把武器能够很好地胜任各种状况。

它的暴击伤害很低,耐用性相当地糟糕,所以玩家最好点上Jury Rigging或weapon repair kit的特技,especially if using over or max charged ammunition. 它的精度对于一把能量武器来说相当地糟糕,相當於laser RCW,远距离的战斗上就不要指望它了。



LAER 能够发射370发标准电池,the equivalent of 19 reloads, or 14 reloads when modified with the auxiliary recharger chip, from full condition before breaking. Template:Durability table


  • LAER mod - auxiliary recharger chip - recycles one round per four shots.
  • LAER mod - prismatic lens - splits the beam into three beams increasing total damage by 30% similar to the Laser rifle beam splitter.


  • Elijah's advanced LAER

Seven LAERs can be found in total:

  • One can be found in the Big MT north tunnel, toward the northernmost side of the lower level below the force field.
  • Another one can be found at the X-8 research center on Gabe's corpse.
  • One can be found at X-7a "Left Field" artillery launch on the corpse of the unique sentry bot, RY-589 Ultimo bot.
  • Another one is in the Forbidden Zone dome, in the second floor room, just left of the brain tank.
  • One can be found on top of the X-13 research facility. In order to reach it, the player character must jump down from the cliff to the north. The cliff can be climbed by jumping up a pile of rocks just to the west of the Big MT west tunnel.
  • Another one is in the X-42 robo-warfare facility on the corpse of the giant robo-scorpion.
  • The last one, along with various energy weapon ammunition, is in the same room as above in a chamber connected to the exit platform. It is on a table in the middle of the room, and it is in good condition. This one requires a force field to be disabled in order to gain access to it.

Behind the scenes

  • The LAER uses the same electric beam weapons technology also developed in the Secret Vault.
  • It was at first a cut energy weapon of Fallout: New Vegas, appearing in the concept art section of the Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's edition complete with its own icon in the game file.
  • The name implies a function like modern attempts at making electrolasers which use lasers to create a conductive plasma conduit in the air and then discharge an electrical differential across the conduit. While practical devices do not yet exist, the concept has been proven and the effect on the target is dependent upon the amount of energy delivered. At lower powers the effect would be much like a stun gun and higher energies being more like a bolt of lightning.
