The Frasier is a unique weapon featured only in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.
A submachine gun prototype based on the excellent MP5 model. Designed as a next generation close quarter combat weapon, it benefits from a higher caliber, rate of fire, and accuracy.
The main performance difference between the Frasier and a standard MP5 is the damage. The Frasier fires the more powerful .45ACP round. The rate of fire and accuracy are slightly better than that of the standard gun. The Frasier is actually a good weapon to use against human enemies, since for some reason it deals more damage than most NATO class assault rifles - and even surpasses the stock 9x39mm rifles in terms of damage per bullet. Factoring in the rate of fire - the highest in the game - the Frasier can deal more damage than any other weapon. However, it's drawback is its comparatively low muzzle velocity and range, capping out around 100 meters.
This weapon can only be purchased from Nimble, by asking for a close range weapon. You may or may not get this weapon on your first request. Buying this gun, or any gun from Nimble triggers a side quest with Snag, who will attempt to take your gun away claiming it is his.
- In the English translation of the game, this weapon referred to as "Cutter" Nimble's dialogue when introducing the weapon. Although called Frasier when viewed in the inventory.
- Despite being called a prototype and next generation weapon, the Frasier is clearly an outdated Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine gun.
- The Frasier, along with the normal MP5, are no longer inferior to every rifle in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat. For some reason they deal more damage than most NATO class assault rifles, and their accuracy has been increased.
- Due to its 'next-generation' nature, low recoil, and use of .45ACP rounds, the Frasier may be a stand-in for the TDI Vector SMG or the Heckler & Koch UMP45, or even the Thompson M1.
- There is no such thing as an MP5 that is chambered for the .45ACP cartridge but Heckler & Koch does produce the newer Universal machine pistol which was intended to replace the MP5 and one of the three types of rounds it comes chambered for is the .45cal. The UMP was never fully successful in replacing the MP5 due to the weapon's powerful cartridge and the MP5s popularity.
