Plasma sniper rifle is a weapon in Fallout 76.

Background[edit | edit source]

Main article: Plasma rifle

This plasma rifle is a lightweight urban warfare weapon created as part of a desire to replace the aging Winchester P94 "Plasma Caster" design.[1] This design was produced and fielded in number prior to the Great War of October 23, 2077. This however was not the end of the design nor manufacture[2] of this weapon platform. Prior to the nuclear Armageddon REPCONN Aerospace – as a subsidiary of RobCo Industries – would successfully develop an improvement from their spaceflight research. With significantly advanced factions tinkering with the design post Armageddon.[3]

This rifle uses a microfusion cell as its power source and draws plasma from a separate cartridge. When depressing the trigger a plasma toroid is produced that can remain stable under normal atmospheric conditions. This toroid is then ejected down a superconducting barrel against a given target.[4][5]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

One of the more powerful conversions of the urban plasma gun, the sniper rifle is essentially a powerful battle rifle exchanging rate of fire and capacity for sheer stopping power. Naturally, it requires accurate fire to truly appreciate.
