SUMMARY

Reverse-engineered from a Forerunner tool of indeterminate function, the design pattern was eventually standardized and blessed for full-scale replication as the Plasma Pistol. It proved to be a serendipitous creation for two important reasons. Firstly, it has a semi-automatic firing mode that emits deadly packets of superheated plasma capable of quickly degrading dissipative energy shields or vaporizing flesh. Secondly, it has an overcharge mode that emits a much larger bolt of plasma with a devastating short-range EMP effect that can disable electronics and vehicles on impact.

The most common patterns of the Plasma Pistol are those grouped by humans into the Type-25 label – so called because they were first observed and assessed in 2525 during first contact at Harvest. Much to the consternation of UNSC intelligence officers tasked with categorizing new variants, within this broad type classification are innumerable different sub-classes. This is due to the Covenant’s loose (by human standards) interpretation of “standardization” and disdain of serial manufacturing techniques.

For example, the Hesduros-manufactured pistols used by Jul ‘Mdama’s forces on Requiem fired more powerful plasma bolts, with a comparable increase in energy use per shot. To complicate matters further, with the dissolution of centralized manufacturing control--a result of the Great Schism--new production Plasma Pistols have appeared in a bewildering variety of casing styles and adornments.
