Why does this version of the multiplas rifle lack the green tubes sticking out of the sides that are present in the advanced power armor picture? 20:33, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

By now, I'm thinking that one of the two pictures is either out of date, or of a different weapon that looks like the F3 plazzie. Nitty Tok. 20:35, September 18, 2010 (UTC)
The E3 trailer had the multiplas rifle (or what looked exactly like it) without the tubes, so maybe it is a different weapon. I guess we'll find out in a month. 02:35, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
It could also be a weapon mod. Deus 03:48, September 23, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, maybe. Go from vaccuum tubes to integrated semiconductors, reduce the weight of the gun. Maybe like tricking out an old P94 to be a turbo plazzie in terms of an AP benefit, too? Nitty Tok. 03:53, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

Three plasma rifle types?

Looking at Dev Diary #2, I think there may be three different types of FO3-style plasma rifles: The basic plasma rifle, and then two others which are both being confused as the "Multiplas Rifle". If you look at the picture of the guy wearing APA1, there are several plasma ampules sticking out the side ports. But if you watch the second Dev Diary and also look at the 1st person view of the multiplas rifle, it's lacking those side port ampules. In the Dev diary, it even has a big convoluted muzzle with a great deal of glowey bits more than just the ampuole. You can see it in Dev Diary #2 at 0:30 and 0:38

So basically, I think there's the basic Plasma Rifle (which should NOT redirect here, BTW, it's File:FONV_PlasRifleBasic.jpg distinct]), the MultiPlas Rifle, and a third kind. Either that or they're all upgrade derivatives from the basic Plasma Rifle, as their plasma chamber barrels all look closely similar.

There's also the possibility that one is a placeholder, and the two newer ones are the Plasma Rifle and Multiplas Rifle. --Kris User Hola.jpg 20:39, September 23, 2010 (UTC)
Why would they show placeholder meshes in a promo video this far along? --MadCat221 22:24, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

Is there a possibility that any of them might be weapon mods?--With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU. LOSE. 22:28, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

I'd say it's likely, to be honest. Especially since I was mistaken about one of 'em being from a while ago, which means none are likely to be placeholders. Possibly a regular Plasma rifle, the Multiplas rifle, and then a mod for one or the other. --Kris User Hola.jpg 22:30, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

Separating "Plasma Rifle (Fallout New Vegas)" and "Multiplas Rifle"

As noted in the previous discussion, there are apparently three separate two-hand stock/pistol grip plasma weapons. The only distinctly evident one of the three is the basic File:FONV_PlasRifleBasic.jpg FO3 Plasma Rifle]. It's unknown which of the other two is actually the Multiplas Rifle, or some other plasma weapon. However, Plasma Rifle (Fallout: New Vegas) redirects to the Multiplas Rifle here.

Do I have the permissions as a registered user to fix that redirect and make it into a bonafide article, or do I have to get a higher-up to fix that? If I can do it myself, how do I go about? That's not the first time I've seen the "basic" plasma rifle, I saw it in another FONV video somewhere too, though I don't remember which or at what time index. I think it warrants a separate entry, since besides this image evidence, the original "Plasma Rifle" is now the "Plasma Caster".

--MadCat221 03:18, October 1, 2010 (UTC)

Someone up there seems obsessed that the Plasma rifles we've seen are actually multiplas rifles, and that there is no confirmation that the F3 plasma rifle is in the game. :( At any rate, I've also seen in that recent japanese gameplay video a multiplas rifle with two or three "barrels", possibly a mod? I'll see if I can't snag a pic of it.--Resplendant Securitron 06:24, October 1, 2010 (UTC)
Well then whoever is obsessed with it needs to take a pic of the screencap I got from Dev Diary #2. I've posted it on this wiki and have linked to it twice on this page. --MadCat221 20:22, October 1, 2010 (UTC)
You're preaching to the choir bro, I've been struggling to get them to add it for a while now. I mean, compare your image to the one I uploaded that shows the multiplas rifle, and you can see they're different weapons. You should upload the plasmariflebasic.jpg to the Multiplas Rifle's gallery, and give it the description: "This is totally not a Multiplas Rifle. It's here because someone is too stubborn to admit that the basic Plasma Rifle is in the game." That'll show them.--Resplendant Securitron 02:34, October 2, 2010 (UTC)
All we're doing is minimizing speculation until we get more info. We know there's a multiplas rifle. We don't know if there is a regular plasma rifle. We don't know if the pics show weapon mods. So, until we know, we'll keep this page and not add the others.--Gothemasticator 02:48, October 2, 2010 (UTC)
File:FONV_PlasRifleBasic.jpg I posted an image of a regular plasma rifle, visually identical to FO3's.] Emphasized for bold. I can caps it or italicize it too, if you want. --MadCat221 02:56, October 2, 2010 (UTC)
You know what? I can't argue with your pic. Here you go... Plasma rifle (Fallout: New Vegas). Cheers.--Gothemasticator 04:33, October 2, 2010 (UTC)


I just stole the multiplas off the counter in the Silver Rush, then equipped it, Gloria slowly walked over and aid 'hey that doesn't belong to you' and motioned to take it off me then went back to the counter. The weapon was still equipped, I didn't lose it and no-one was hostile!

Multiplas Rifle Shop Limits

The article states that there are only six distinct multiplas rifles, and that each merchant who sells them only sells one but, for me at least, this is not the case. I'm playing the Xbox 360 version, and I bought one from Silver Rush, waited three days for the inventory to restock, and was able to buy a second one. I just did the same again, and am now looking at my third multiplas from Silver Rush alone. This one is in better condition, so I don't have the caps to buy it, but all the same. I don't know if this is a particular glitch for me or if there were intended to be multiples, but that is what has happened.

Possible bug?

Xbox 360Icon xbox360.pngWhen repairing a Multiplas rifle at around 75% condition (pretty sure it was slightly under) with a poor-condition plasma rifle (no mods), after the repair the Multiplas rifle was at 100% condition and the plasma rifle used to repair it was still in my inventory, and also at 100% condition. Reloading my save which was right before this continually repeated the event. Can anyone shed some light on this? Is it caused by something on my save file, or is this a repeatable scenario for others? Balmung03 07:52, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

I know I'm replying... What... 5-6 months late, but meh.

That sounds odd, the barter system is bugged in Fallout 3 and New Vegas, based on the engine and the way in which trading works in the engine, so... Maybe this bug is caused in a similar way as the barter system bug is? WikiaNinja 21:26, June 26, 2011 (UTC)
