Fallout 3:  Plasma Rifle by Darksamu Fallout 3:  Plasma Rifle by Darksamu
This is the plasma rifle I made for my Fallout 3 outfit. The base is a Nerf gun and most of the various parts are either from garage sales or a hardware store. It even makes noise if you pull the trigger, but we have to work on that a bit more before it works quite right.

Here's a more dramatic view.

That turned out great! I actually did one along the same lines (nerf gun). I didn't dirty mine up at all, though.

never liked the design of the Fallout 3 Plasma weapons, I think they look far to steampunkish & fragile. the original ones from fallout 2 & it's variants were much better.

The Recon re-configurable Nerf rifle is my absolute favorite and you have succeeded in tripling its awesomeness factor. Well done mate

I'm glad you like it! The best way I've found to make things so far is to find the closest real world part and mod it. I'm not quite up to the whole "sculpting my own stuff out of plastic and whatnot" stage.

We tried using some glow-in-the-dark paint (unfortunately not as cool as it sounds) and we also considered using glow sticks. I'd definitely want it to glow next time we go out!

I'm really glad you liked it! I think I'm still a little amazed that I found all the right parts and it all came together so well. I'm sure your stuff doesn't look like garbage. If push comes to shove, throw a little glitter on it. That'll distract anyone. :)

Gotta love the Plasma Rifles. "Slow as a mule but with a kick to match." The only thing I don't like from a tactical point of view is the location of the Micro-fusion Cell. In the location it's in it is totally exposed and can be a vulnerable spot to a good shot or a stray bullet, it also leave it vulnerable to environmental hazards.

It should have a battery port like the Laser Pistol. Not only would having it on one side of the weapon protect it from getting hit from the opposite direction, but the metal plating of the battery port would also offer some protection.

I had never thought about where the MF Cell was, but now that you pointed it out, it's definitely a glaring weakness. That could really put a Plasma Rifle out of commission. Also, it's just not structurally sound there since banging the gun against anything will probably dent the carrier it's in, if it's anything like the gun I made.

YgvantheShaper Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
Yeah not only that but sense it's a Micro-FUSION Cell, a small nuclear device, it could...explode if hit...meaning bad times for the Lone Wanderer or Courier 6.

Thanks! The plasma rifle was probably the most fun thing to do. I used a Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 Dart Blaster. We were originally going to have it fire the darts, but that was abandoned after some of the mods we did.

Thanks! I can't even begin to describe the horrible amount of my life that I've put into Fallout 3. I've only restarted the game 3 or 4 times, and that was interrupted by New Vegas...

This also consumed a lot of my summer and fall, which is probably only more of a testament to my obsession.

It's weird, I kind of have a apocalypse fetish- Is that makes sense. I also have a thing with zombies- So yes.

The only gun thing that would make you and more awesome would be paladin armor with a minigun...

Darksamu Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
I completely understand the apocalypse fetish, since I have it as well. I think it was Fallout 3 and a love of broken buildings that really got me into it, but now I look for cool apocalyptic stuff everywhere.

Well, to do a paladin armor and a minigun would probably be a cake walk, I'll give myself a few years before I attempt it! However, I've seen it done and it was super awesome.

I just like the idea of me being left alone, the only contact i'd have would be in defense or short barters... err I don't like people very much. I mean I like the idea of being the only one for kilometers, no boundaries, you keep what you find, and the only law is your own. Survival of the fittest and all that. Lord knows I'm not "the fittest" but I just like the idea.

What about enclave armor? Theirs is way more badass.

Darksamu Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
It's a really neat idea, especially when people start to get on your nerves. I also think it's awesome seeing the way society breaks down and then is rebuilt in a way that might only make sense in that apocalyptic land. It's interesting to see what people would do in that situation. I'd like to think I could survive after the apocalypse, but I have a feeling I'd be one of the not-fit not surviving...

If I could, I'd totally do Tesla armor. Having it light up or crackle would be so cool.

When I replied to the last one- I scrolled down and saw this DD... Perfect timing eh?

I don't think you could make it crackle without someone getting hurt XD
