The Needler pistol is a small gun in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

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

This former scientific tool, the Bringham needler uses hypodermic darts manufactured from hard plastic and is excellent at defeating armor.[1]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

AP ammo, coupled with the pistol's Weapon Penetrate perk and accuracy make it extremely useful against armored opponents, enabling very, very high criticals. Ammunition rarity is a problematic factor, however.
