The needler pistol was supposed to be a small gun in Van Buren.


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]


The Needler Pistol would reappear in Van Buren, with a very reduced ammunition capacity, but an immediate 12 points of damage. It also cut enemy armor resistances and thresholds in half.


The only person to use this weapon was to be Victor Presper, aboard Ballistic Orbital Missile Base 001.[2]
