A brass colored glove-like device that is placed on the user's hand, the user's fingers are exposed and allowed full range of motion, while still giving protection in melee engagements.
Abilities and Usage Edit
The device fires rounds of semi-contained plasma with 19 kJ of force, roughly that of a .50 BMG. the plasma containment fails on contact with a solid object, such as a wall or person, but is strong enough it won't detonate in strong magnetic fields or in atmosphere. The device is capable of accurate firing up to 500 meters, however it has no scope or iron sights, making aiming a difficulty in itself.
The device has two firing modes, manual and electronic. The manual mode is triggered with a thumb switch and is intended to be used as a last resort. The electronic mode uses a form of B.C.I.(Brain Computer Interface) to allow the user to control the weapon without the use of triggers, buttons, or switches. The electronic firing mode also allows aiming assistance, where it attempts to correct for the users aiming to allow them to hit their target more often than if the device had fired when it was told to, this is enabled by default but can be disabled during maintenance.
