AER9 laser rifle is a weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
The laser rifle has no iron sights, but compensates with excellent zoom. It can be upgraded with a scope, making it less effective in close quarters, but thanks to its good accuracy, it can be used as a medium to long-range weapon. The laser rifle makes a decent starting weapon, but with all mods it is extremely powerful, even at high levels.
The laser rifle can fire a total of about 620 times using standard cells, the equivalent of 26 reloads, from full
condition before breaking.

Fiends often carry them.
Hidden Valley bunker - Torres may sell laser rifles.
Found on the dead Brotherhood patrols during the Still in the Dark Quest.
Nipton - Another can be found lying beside a dead wastelander by the small trailer park.
Nipton house - One can be found inside in the bathtub of one of the houses.
Silver Rush - Gloria may sell laser rifles, and numerous laser rifles can be stolen from around the store.
They can often be purchased from Quartermaster Bardon.
One can be found in a hotel room in Primm.
Prior to patch 18.104.22.168x, the laser rifle dealt only 15 points of damage per shot.
The laser rifle does not have iron sights.
Due to the fact that it can fire 2 beams at once by adding a beam splitter, it can score a critical hit for each beam outside of V.A.T.S. This effect allows it to sometimes (with a critical hit for each beam) cause a huge amount of damage (72.6) per shot.
Behind the scenes Edit
The markings on these rifles as well as their descriptions hint at the types of lasing mediums used in each variant. The 1064 nm wavelength (frequency converted to green, 532 nm) of the
AER14 prototype strongly indicates that it is a Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet) laser while the ~650 nm wavelength of the AER9 laser rifle indicates that it is likely a Ruby, InGaAs or HeNe laser.
