The Arclight Pistol (known as Model II Arclight in-lore) is a laser, semi-automatic pistol manufactured by Klaus & Werner. It has an effective range of 30 meters.[1]

In-game description

A handheld laser made famous as Kyle Fenris' sidearm on the hit vid show The Frontier, the Klaus & Werner Model II Arclight has become extremely popular on the civilian market. Despite its media appeal, the Model II offers a higher rate of fire than any of its ballistic counterparts. While that may diminish the weapon's stopping power, its power cell offers more than enough shots to finish the job.
