The Solar Scorcher is a unique energy weapon in Fallout 2.


Main article: Laser Pistol
The Solar Scorcher is a special laser pistol which uses sunlight as its energy source. In full daylight, the experimental photo-electric cells absorb light and allow the weapon to fire up to six shots, after which it must be reloaded.

This rare weapon was seen in Vault 13, in the armory, before the events of Fallout, thus before 2161. It might have been sent to the vault as a experimental weapon for testing in real-life conditions when the vault was opened.

It shoots a red laser bolt.


  • One nice thing about this weapon is that it does use a special ammo, the sunlight, and does not cost any AP to reload and not ammunitions. However you may only recharge this weapon either under sunlight or bright light. Any kind of dimness (at night or be in a cave) will prevent this weapon from recharging. It is thus advisable that, should you use this weapon regularly, try to use in the sunlight and recharge regularly, especially after battle.


The Solar Scorcher was orignally going to be included at the Environmental Protection Agency, but the location was cut. Killap's Restoration patch returns it to the EPA, and it will not be found in the Guardian of Forever.
