The YK32 Pulse Pistol is an electrical pulse weapon that was developed by the Yuma Flats Energy Consortium. Though powerful, the YK32 was never considered a practical weapon due to its inefficient energy usage and bulky design.
It may also be found on random Enclave units, such as the patrols around Navarro.
The pulse pistol is considered a powerful, light weapon, and as it uses pulse technology, it is popular as it negates most armors. However, the problem with this weapon arises from the fact that it can hold limited ammunition and it has quite a low range. This limits its functionality to quick, close encounters.
