Praised for its range and stopping power, the PPK12 Gauss Pistol is of German design. The pistol uses an electromagnetic field to propel rounds at tremendous speed and punch through almost any armor.

The PPK12 Gauss Pistol is a small gun in Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel. It uses a special electromagnetic field rather than gunpowder to send its ammunition down the barrel. Other weapons using this technology include the M72 Gauss Rifle, the Scoped Gauss Rifle and the MEC Gauss MiniGun.

Locations

Melchior on the fourth level of the Military Base guards a locker containing this weapon. It can sometimes be bought in San Francisco, and Enclave patrols may carry it.

Notes

This is one of the best pistols. The ammo is armor piercing and does lots of damage. It also costs 1 fewer AP to fire than your favorite rifle, which means six shots every round with Fast Shot, Bonus Rate of Fire, ten action points and 2 Action Boy ranks. It's actually better than most burst-fire weapons since it is accurate. Unfortunately, its ammo capacity is rather low, and 2mm EC is somewhat uncommon.

Being able to fire 6 shots per round could possibly mean killing 6 enemies (even Enclave soldiers with Advanced Power Armor) in one round by having the Better Criticals and Sniper perk and having 10 Luck. This will ensure that all your shots will be a critical and with the Better Criticals perk, there is a chance that the enemy will automatically die (regardless of the damage) or of course die by the additional critical damage. This could vie for the best Fallout 2 build.
