Praised for its range and stopping power, the PPK12 Gauss Pistol is of German design. The pistol uses an electromagnetic field to propel rounds at tremendous speed and punch through almost any armor.

— Fallout 2 in-game description

The PPK12 Gauss pistol is a small gun in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

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

A scaled-down M72 Gauss rifle, the PPK-12 is a German weapon. Although it is used without the stock and features just three conductive stages, the pistol is nevertheless extremely powerful, retaining its big brother's range and penetrative power, at the expense of sheer damage. It is still a respectable weapon in the hands of a competent shooter, capable of defeating any armor.[1][2]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

This is one of the most useful pistols in the game. The ammo is armor piercing and does high damage. It also costs 1 fewer AP to fire than many other weapons, which means six shots every round with Fast Shot, Bonus Rate of Fire, ten action points and 2 Action Boy ranks. It's actually better than most burst-fire weapons since it is accurate. Unfortunately, its ammo capacity is rather low, and 2mm EC is somewhat uncommon. Being able to fire 6 shots per round could possibly mean killing 6 enemies (even Enclave soldiers with advanced power armor) in one round by having the Better Criticals and Sniper perk added to 10 Luck.
