The Tesla rifle is a unique weapon in the Fallout 4 add-on, Automatron.

Background

Cobbled together from a robot's arm-mounted weapon, this rifle can shoot deadly arcs of electricity that jump from enemy to enemy, injuring anyone caught in the chain.[1]

Characteristics

The Tesla rifle utilizes arced electricity to harm its targets, created through the use of fusion cells as ammunition. While the Tesla rifle does have a very limited range, regardless of any modifications made to it, the rifle does make up for this handicap, by being able to strike multiple enemies at once.
