This Wattz 1000 laser pistol has been upgraded with a magnetic field targeting system that tightens the laser emission, giving this pistol extra penetrating power.

In-game description, Fallout 2

The Wattz 1000 magneto-laser pistol is an energy weapon in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Laser pistol. To modify, please edit the source page.

The Wattz 1000 laser pistol is a mass produced civilian variant of the laser pistol, offering lower wattage than military or police versions.[1] Its design is one of the primary reasons for the reduced wattage, as rather than a crystal array, it uses a laser diode for focusing light.[2][3]

The weapons can be easily locked down for transport and storage, preventing unauthorized users from operating the weapon. The proper arming sequence needs to be transmitted to enable the weapon to function.[4]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The magneto-laser pistol is an upgraded variant of the Wattz 1000 laser pistol, inflicting the same base damage as its predecessor, but its attacks are not as heavily affected by armor. Laser bolts from this pistol void 50 Laser resistance and 5 Laser threshold from the target, rendering them much more effective against armored foes.

The AEP7 features a new design in the photonic focusing chamber as well as an entirely redesigned focusing crystal pattern. The bulk and weight have both been reduced over previous models and it was likely that within the new few development cycles, the successor to the AEP7 would replace the n99 10mm as the standard issue sidearm for all forces.

    The AEP7 took advantage of new manufacturing techniques developed shortly before the Great War. Although many were produced, most did not make it into field service because of logistics problems concerning their deployment during active wartime.

    The AEP7 can be a rare find in the Capital Wasteland, and any models that are produced should be returned to the Citadel for repair and recalibrating before field deployment."
