The urban plasma rifle, utilizing a mass-produced variant of the Heisenberg compensation field generator

The Heisenberg compensation field is an integral element of urban plasma rifles developed by REPCONN Aerospace for the U.S. military.


The Heisenberg compensation field is a crucial step in the matter modulation process underlying the new model plasma rifle. REPCONN Aerospace was having trouble with the matter conversion process occurring in the field, blockading their attempts at further development of the weapon. However, thanks to the wonders of industrial espionage, Poseidon Energy's aborted Semele plasma rifle provided the necessary technical data to resolve the issue.[1]


The Heisenberg compensation field is mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas.

    One of my contacts at Poseidon energy found the specs for the canceled SEMELE plasma rifle. I'm sending them over to your team. From what I can tell they've managed to resolve the matter conversion issue you've been having with the Heisenberg Compensation Field. Combined with the data from the sabotaged launch, I think you should have everything you need to complete the Q-35. Colonel Moretti is expecting results with this project, I don't need to tell you what a favorable evaluation from his desk will do for all our stock portfolios.
