The Sonic Emitter - Opera Singer is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


The Sonic Emitter - Opera Singer is an Energy Weapons pistol with bonus damage against robots and Power Armor wearers, as well as a unique "critical strike dismemberment" effect, crippling the target's limbs and reducing its total HP by 20 HP on critical strikes. A lethal critical hit will dismember the target, even if the Bloody Mess perk is not active. This Sonic Emitter modulation has a red oscilloscope.

As a one-handed Energy Weapon, the Sonic Emitter - Opera Singer is affected by The Professional perk and counts as an improved holdout weapon.


The Sonic Emitter - Opera Singer can fire a total of about 495 times using standard cells, the equivalent of 21 reloads, from full condition before breaking.
