The turbo electric plasma rifle is an energy weapon in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.
This weapon is an upgraded Plasma Rifle that fires much quicker, and with deadlier accuracy. One or two shots from this piece will reduce an enemy to a fine pile of ash.
Plasma rifles or plasma casters are high tech weapons firing superheated bolts of plasma, powered by either microfusion cells or heavy energy cells, which find numerous applications in military and industrial fields. The bolts form into toroids in the plasma chamber, which are then sent down a superconducting barrel, propelled by, and in some models stabilized by electromagnetic claws upon exiting it. However, the plasma bolt chamber can be hotwired in order to accelerate the bolt formation process, effectively turbocharging the rifle. The primary damage mechanism of plasma rifles is thermal transfer, causing serious burns to soft targets and melting hard ones. In extreme cases, the plasma can cause spontaneous dissolution of the target, including separation of soft tissues from hard ones or wholesale molecular destabilization that turns the target into a viscous green fluid.
Initially, the weapon was a bulky, industrial plasma caster, manufactured by Winchester Arms; while it performed admirably, it was expensive and required specialized training to use. However, later developments for the United States Army would lead to a more compact design that was cheaper to produce and easier to train for, perfectly suited for urban warfare.
The turbo electric plasma rifle is a upgraded version of the electric plasma rifle, and is found only in the Secret Vault. It's to be manufactured using technology contained in the Secret Vault. It's equipped by the most important super mutants of Attis army and by the champion of the Gladiator Pit in Los, the Wasteland Stranger.
The best energy weapon of the game (with the electric plasma cannon) and one of the best weapons available. It's rate of fire is lower than the continuous fire laser but its damage is higher. The weapon uses a raygun shot. It's very accurate and burns (by electrical burn) the target with radius contact.
