The Plasma Pistol, like all energy based projectile weapons used by the Covenant, is a firearm that fires bolts of superheated ionized gas known as Plasma, instead of traditional Human ballistic ammunition. The power output is, like the Plasma Rifle, 100-150 Kv @ 2~3 dA, but, when overcharged, the power output is 1.5 Mv @ 2~3 dA. Throughout the Human-Covenant war, the Type-25 DEP is the most widely encountered weapon, and for good reason, as it has proven most effective against human forces. The Type-25 DEP is standard-issue for lower-ranking Covenant infantry such as Grunts and Jackals, but is occasionally used by higher ranking species within the Covenant. If fired quickly enough, the Plasma Pistol is capable of shooting as many rounds per second as the Plasma Rifle. Against UNSC infantry and human targets, the Type 25 DEP's lethality to a person is extreme, injuries inflicted to the victim are severe third-degree burns, with the wound being cauterized instantly upon impact. Generally two hits from either a Plasma Pistol or Plasma Rifle will kill light, or non armored targets. The Type-25 Plasma Pistol, also has the ability to charge a single superheated bolt, which can instantly deplete almost any form of energy shielding, or if the overcharge bolt was to hit a flesh based target, would result in an instant death. This high-powered shot makes the Plasma Pistol a formidable strategic weapon.
