The MV-2 Gauss Pistol was designed in Mesa Verde by a tribe known as the Ciphers. When Caesar's Legion conquered the Ciphers, the schematics for the MV-2 slowly spread throughout the Midwest, even reaching the furthest edges of the Mojave where leading gun merchants such as the Gun Runners realized the designs in actuality. Like all gauss weapons, it utilizes powerful electromagnet coils to generate an electromagnetic field powerful enough to propel rounds at speeds capable of punching through almost any armor. The ammunition it uses, stored in an unusual side-mounted magazine, is the rare and hard-to-find 2mm, necessitating the use of a sidearm loaded with more easily obtainable ammunition when facing lesser threats. When fired, the round leaves an unmistakable spiral trail of ionized particles.
