Gameplay articles:

The YK32 Pulse Pistol is an electrical pulse weapon that was developed by the Yuma Flats Energy Consortium. Though powerful, the YK32 was never considered a practical weapon due to its inefficient energy usage and bulky design.[1]

Gameplay article:

Codenamed the "CIRCUITBREAKER",[2] this pulse pistol is a prototype weapon developed for the United States Armed Forces, in order to provide a weapon that would be able to disable power armor, out of fear that the Chinese were developing their own versions.[3] It was transported by Staff Sergeant Daniels to Vault 34 by orders of Colonel Roy Blackwell, for safe keeping until the manufacturer could retrieve the prototype for production.[2]
