"There are several reasons I love this her gun: its expensive; its damn-near impossible to break; when you shoot it at something, you know the target is down hard; it is simple to use; and it is easy to maintain. God, I love this gun!"
―Anonymous UNSC Marine, on why he loved the Type-40 Directed-energy pistol

The Type-40 Directed-energy pistol is a weapon produced in 2561 by Aperture Science, which assistance from Sangheili and Huragok experts with plasma weapons, minorly aiding relations with either species, and producing a well-designed weapon as well.


The Type-40 Directed-energy pistol was a designed to be a very versatile weapon. The weapon was less of a pistol, and more of a rifle, because of a stock attached to the weapon in the factory, along with a longer barrel. Because of this long range ability, the weapon was fixed with a SOPMOD rail on top of the weapon allowing for long-range scopes to be affixed.

The scope and barrel prevented the weapon from being placed in a holster, but was still significantly smaller then a Submachine gun.

The weapon carried a plasma battery, shaped like a magazine, placed behind the trigger inside the pistol grip. The battery contained enough power for a total of 18 shots, before a new magazine would have been needed to be loaded.
