Plasma > Laser. We can argue about this. (And, knowing some of you, you're probably on the phone with our customer service reps right now arguing your case.) Sure, plasma weapons are slower. And they're not at all stealthy. And the ammo is hard to come by. But you get both ballistic and energy damage, which makes you more effective over a broader array of enemies. And their weight is negligible considering the damage they do. Oh, and did we mention you can add the Flamer barrel? No question what we're carrying.
How many hours have you spent in the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout with your trusty Plasma Pistol melting targets into full molecular destabilization? You don't have to loot a Gunner to land one of these Plasma Pistols or even visit Diamond City - we have them right here at ThinkGeek. Check out the Fallout 1:1 Plasma Pistol Replica, a ThinkGeek / GameStop exclusive created by our friends at Chronicle Collectibles. Lighting up with a green glow, it's a good ol' standard plasma pistol, ready for you to mod however you'd like with what you scavenge around the house. Good luck with that.
