Energy pistol.

257 The EP4 packs plenty of punch in a small-framed package. Often found among more discerning CGTs and well-funded planetary defense forces.

RPG23 Launcher

Rocket launcher.

197 The RPG 23 was designed to take down mid-sized mechs and punch through lighter armored vehicles. That it would be used in a number of arcology turf wars surprised exactly no-one. Avoid use in confined spaces.

ER Chrome Puncher

Energy precision rifle.

237 The Chrome Puncher is a modified piercing precision uPlus sports rifle made for competition shooting. This Joyrunner creation is improved to perforate any auged-up ****er refusing to stand down when told nicely. Step back, take your time and enjoy the kill.

With almost no moving parts this rifle is one of the most reliable energy rifles around. 

The Fist

Ballistic shotgun.

487 CyberSec Mega weapon smith truly went ballistic with this five-barrelled multi-shotgun. If this won't solve your problems, nothing will. Loved by weapon fetishists all over Veles. 


Ballistic precision rifle.

226 The Boreshot puts a reliable CyberSec Mega sniping platform into the hands of whoever is willing to pay up. An SI-rifled barrel together with factory-tuned sights make for an excellent piercing long-range.

MG1000 Strikebreaker


487 A classic that never goes out of style. Multiple rotating barrels allow for efficient cooling. while the small motor adds an aggressive high-pitched whine to the deep satisfying roar of the firing mechanism. 

EBR Enforcer

Energy burst rifle.

Energy Minigun.

357 This Joyrunner-made weapon is a marvel of precision engineering. The rotating beam projectors emit energy so fast that it becomes a lethal strobe, effectively atomizing the target. 


Modified rocket launcher.

370 The Blastmaster represents EightCo's trumphant entry into the support weapons market. While not quite as reliable as the R23, the Blastmaster holds its own when it comes to damage output and sheer awesomeness. 


Modified rocket launcher.

396 Someone took an R23 and increased the magazine size, caring little for weight or transportability. And you won't either when you can just keep pumping missiles into whatever is coming at you.

ABR Commander

Ballistic burst rifle.

464 The Commander has been around for as long as most people can remember. a tried and true rotary-bolt system provides accurate bursts - preventing a nervous recruit or eager hangabout from emptying their entire magazine of homing bullets at the first sign of trouble.

The Minor Note

Modified pistol.

115 A one-shot wonder packing  an entire magazine's worth of punch into one massive blaze. Guaranteed to halt even a frenzied Keesh or lumbering Larkian in their tracks.


Automatic rocket launcher.

280 The Astrosmasher is a powertool made for deep space asteroid mining where it is used to keep incoming meteroids at bay with a barrage of explosives. When used as a weapon it is as bizarre as it is devastating. 



345 Repurposed heavy-duty mining equipment can serve just as well in a combat situation, as proven by this flamethrower based on a Canary Magamamaker. Good for persuasive crowd control and clearing out feral nests.


Modified machine gun.

607 The Overwhelmer is a typical EightCo product in that it's both a ripoff and a superior improvement on the original. In this case those inventive Karlans took an A24 Dominator and adapted it to explosive ammo. A true gem in any arsenal.

BC7 Disintegrator

Energy cannon.

850 Whisper Cybernetics designed the Disintegrator to be their main offering in the support weapon class. With a focused energy output rivaling that of a small sun, these beam cannons should give you the upper hand in any hostile situation. 

The Dealbreaker

Defies classification.

1,119 Experts will argue to the end of time whether the Dealbreaker is a minishotgun automatic, an automatic shotminigun or any other possible combination of those terms. But the Dealbreaker doesn't care. And neither will you.


Special Weapon.

319 The Dismemberer is a construction power tool made by Canary which has also found use in those LoHabs where corpSec has managed to stem the flow of regular weapons. Launches rotating monosaws at unsuspecting enemies.
