The ZX80 Laser Pistol is the standard weapon carried by UNT soldiers, used mainly alongside the Nui Rifle . It works by using energy stored in cells inside an ammo clip to power a small, high powered light system. The light system fires a beam of light into a another system near the front of the gun, which amplifies the beam of light into such a highly concentrated beam, it can cut through weak armour. UNT soldiers often use the weapon to blind people, firing the light into their eyes.
The ammo clip and the empty pistol. There are 8 cells in each clip, and each cell can power two shots of the pistol, therefore the pistol fires 16 beams per clip.
The weapon can also be holstered, like all good pistols.
