Winchester P94 Plasma Rifle[edit source]

Hum... do you really think that the Plasma Rifle in Fallout 1-2 and Fallout Tactics are not the same ? The description in-game is exactly the same, the charger as the same capacity and its damage is almost like, instead of 30-65 is 35-60.

Personally, I don't see any difference, either in-game or out-game. Itachou [~talk~] 18:02, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

See the picture. The Tactics version is modified to be held like a rifle instead of by the handle at the top. Ausir(talk) 18:04, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Good glance Ausir, it's true that I had never noticed that the sort of wrist was gone. Apart from this, are exactly the same, your edition is makes the page better. Itachou [~talk~] 18:45, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Strange physics (?) bug with plasma goo pile[edit source]

I was sneaking along in Paradise Falls sniping slavers with A3-21's plasma rifle and "gooed" one slaver standing right next to the end post of a fence. After the battle was over, I noticed a thrashing or drumming noise similar to that heard when a ragdoll prop has physics problems, but there were no props jumping around. I eventually isolated the sound -- it was clearly coming from the pile of goo next to the fence, as if an invisible model were thrashing about. It was still banging away when I left the scene. Odd and rather spooky. Wunengzi 06:24, August 26, 2010 (UTC)

I've since noticed this with ghouls "gooed" in tight spots in the Red Racer factory, so it must be a general quirk. Also, ghouls who have been "gooed" sometimes have their heads explode immediately thereafter, with the head/skull appearing momentarily in the goo pile and then bursting into fragments.

Note: Only Red Racer ghoul's heads will explode (not counting by head shots). It's a scripted event due to the scientist guy having put chips in their heads. JaspertheViking :D?

Thanks, I had forgotten that. It's interesting as an indication that when something is "gooed," the body is still "there" in some sense, but invisible (otherwise there would be nothing for the script to interact with to replace the "real" [and invisible] head with the exploding one).

Rename the "Urban Plasma Rifle"?[edit source]

Well, first off... what is the reasoning for naming it the "Urban" plasma rifle?

Secondly... since FONV came out, we have a more concrete origin/retcon for the difference between the Winchester P94 and the more rifle-like "Urban" plasma rifle. I think it should instead be called the "REPCONN-Series Plasma Rifle", since the prototype Q-35 was REPCONN property before the Great War made property rights determined by superior firepower.--MadCat221 23:09, September 9, 2011 (UTC)
