Sometime before the Great War, a prototype plasma pistol of what later became the Enclave's standard plasma pistol, was stolen from them by an organization called Quaere Verum. The pistol was later taken by aliens who, most likely unknowingly brought up with both the safe that contained the gun and the computer terminal required to remotely unlock the safe.


The weapon acts very similarly to the plasma pistol it formed the basis for, barring several prototype features. First and foremost, this weapon does more than three times as much damage as the production plasma pistol, it uses two energy cells to power each shot, and weighs twice as much as the standard production model 6 lb (loaded), almost as much as an R91 assault rifle.
