A weapon's prefix is determined primarily by its accessory or elemental capacitor, if present. If the weapon lacks both an accessory and an element, its prefix may be determined by another part such as the barrel or grip.

Weapons may lack a prefix entirely. Such weapons will have no accessory, no elemental capacitor, no barrel or other part providing a special prefix, and a grip that does not itself provide a prefix.

Laser Prefixes

Laser prefixes are determined solely from the weapon's grip and element. The presence or absence of an accessory (rare, on a laser) has no effect on the weapon's prefix.

Incendiary lasers, the most common variety, take their prefix from the manufacturer of the grip part. Note that on a laser, the grip part extends horizontally from the left side of the foregrip, where it is difficult to identify in profile. The easily profiled handgrip on the rear of the weapon is part of its buttstock, which affects the weapon's recoil and handling, but not its name.

Lasers of other elements take their prefix from their element, disregarding the grip manufacturer.
