Disruptors and Mod Rifles
The "tech" numbers indicate a "tech level" that
when the weapons were first developed. It corresponds to the eras in the
The disruptor essentially generates a
focused but unstable quantum containment field which is further
disrupted through excitement by focused energy. The beam causes the
destabilization of molecules it comes in contact with, exciting and
heating the molecules in their Tangible
dimensions and encouraging unpredictable emissions in their
Manifold dimensions. While the beam
will not cause flashy effects like explosion or disintegration of the
affected molecules, their unpredictable quantum behaviour causes
unpleasant effects like pain, heating, and damage to molecular bonds.
The disruptor became a favourite weapon
almost as soon as the first one was built. Generally featuring configurable energy
output, the amount of damage to be done to an opponent can be determined
ahead of time. The beam-nature of the disruptor means that even if your
aim is a bit unsteady, the continuous beam can be moved about until
contact is made, though the longer the beam is concentrated on
the target, the more damage is done. Most disruptors will fire
continuously for several seconds before they overheat and shut down for
a similar cooling period. Power is generally supplied in the form of
replaceable or reversible micro-fuel cells, which are buffered
through some sort of capacitive network that in turn ups their current
to levels suitable for initiating the firing reaction. There is
often a direct trade-off between the disruptor's ability to do large
amounts of damage, to maintain a sustained beam duration, and to fire
repeatedly over the course of a prolonged firefight.
The Modulation Rifle is a more complex
version of the Disruptor. It integrates scanners that analyze the target
and the effects of the Disruptor beam upon it and modulate the beam to
encourage maximum damage at the cellular level. The Mod Rifle is a more
complex weapon to design, build, and maintain due to the extra
electronics and control systems involved in scanning and analyzing the
target and harmonically modulating the beam. Under decent conditions,
however, a modulated disruptor will do much more damage than a standard
Azatlath Advanced Construction
Azatlath designs powerful, high-quality disruptors to
fill a variety of specific military roles.
Heavy Disruptor by Azatlath Industries
|Though the Impact
is the smallest of their disruptors, it features
usual reliability and stopping power and features a four-barrelled
configuration that helps maximize cooling and sustainability
of fire. It is a very popular
sidearm among professionals.
Heavy Disruptor by Azatlath Industries
Azatlath "hand and
a half" assault disruptor. Straps to the user's forearm and
can be further supported and stabilized with a second hand.
The Nostrom is a high-powered, multi-purpose rifle which may
be set for more frequent, long-duration beams useful for
sweeping areas or it can be set for shorter, repeated pulses.
Active cooling minimizes downtime. It is designed to provide
decent, sustainable firepower in open combat situations while
the one-handed designed leaves flexibility for the off hand.
It is somewhat heavy and cumbersome for close fighting or
Imperial Design Corps
don't generally favour disruptors as main force weapons but use them as nearly
inexhaustible sources of light firepower. They are generally capable of
accepting easily applied modules to convert them to modulating disruptors.
Disruptor Pistol by IDC
The Reliant is a small, light, and efficient
disruptor pistol designed as an emergency sidearm for
troops. It does low damage and fires only quick bursts of energy but is
reliable and capable of lasting through prolonged firefights without
changing fuel cells. It is light, inexpensive, and easy to carry. It does not have an
available Modulation Pack.
Disruptor Carbine by IDC
The Taramok is a light, short, and
easy-to-carry carbine designed to function well in a close environment or
to provide sustained defence when heavier weapons fail. It has an available
Modulation Conversion Pack which can be easily attached to convert it to a
more powerful Modulation Rifle. When modulated, the Taramok is more
powerful but capable of fewer shots per battery pack and is heavier and
considerably more unwieldly. The same pack fits the Vigilant Rifle.
Disruptor Rifle by IDC
A powerful and adaptable main-force disruptor
rifle. It can be configured in terms of power output, beam duration, and
rate of fire to maximize its effectiveness in open combat, suppressive
fire, or medium range sniping. It has an available Modulation Conversion
Pack which can be easily attached to convert it to a more powerful
Modulation Rifle. With the mod pack attached, the Vigilant is more powerful but capable
of fewer shots per battery pack and is considerably more heavy and awkward. The same
battery pack fits the Taramok Carbine.
Tzar designs inexpensive, mass-produced
disruptors for civilian and high-volume military use.
Disruptor Pistol By Tzar Industries (Tech 5)
|A cheap, plentiful
disruptor pistol designed, built, and mass-marketed by
Industries. The Chaperon is small and light, making it both an
ideal casual sidearm for civilian emergencies as well as
easily concealed for more clandestine operations. Pound for
pound, it packs a decent punch but its small fuel cell and
mass-produced electronics make it unable to sustain a beam for
more than second or two. An excellent option for personal
protection for the whole family, the Chaperon is not the
professional's first choice in a prolonged firefight.
Disruptor Pistol By Tzar Industries (Tech 5)
|A heavier pistol
by Tzar Industries, well designed and thoroughly average in
its performance. Mass produced and economical, the Precentor
performs reliably in active duty. Designed to drain
conservatively, it cannot provide heavy firepower but can be
fired longer and more frequently. It is an excellent,
affordable choice when equipping large forces on a budget.
Disruptor Carbine by Tzar Industries
The TDC-7 is a small, inexpensive carbine capable of a high ROF and decent
damage. It is light and carries well. It is often an economical choice for
large militaries for close quarters and patrol duty.
Disruptor Rifle by Tzar Industries (Tech 4)
A disruptor rifle designed
primarily for military field operations. It is a fairly large,
heavy two-handed weapon capable of decent accuracy and damage even
at long range. It makes a good vehicle for suppressive fire and,
with optional optic attachments, makes a decent mid-range sniper rifle.
It can be set to rapidly pulse its output or maintain a continuous
beam for several seconds at a time. Its ignition current is
provided by a mini-fuel cell that is easy to swap even during
fire, ideal for field combat.
Heavy Disruptor Rifle by Tzar Industries
The TDR-13 is designed to do damage in heavy
combat situations. It does good damage and can maintain a relatively high
rate of fire but requires frequent reloads. It is relatively inexpensive
and widely available.
Volto-Avaiga designs a small range of disruptor pistols to
meet specific defense force and civilian peace keeping needs.
Light Disruptor Pistol by Volto-Avaiga
The Proverb 3 is an intermittent-use disruptor
pistol designed to provide credible firepower to security professionals and
civil law enforcement officials who don't generally see prolonged or
intense engagements. The Proverb 3 generates a good punch but needs to be
reloaded frequently. It is small and light enough to to be carried
comfortably for long periods of time but large enough to provide a visible
deterrent to potential threats.
Disruptor Pistol by Volto-Avaiga (Tech 5)
Volto-Avaiga's usual high quality, cutting-edge design and
technology, the Arbiter is an example of a disruptor done
right. Portable and configurable, it is designed primarily for
law enforcement and security. It features easily
accessible variable power settings and has full biometric
implementation so only its rightful owner can fire it.
The Arbiter is designed for
short, controlled beam bursts and rapid re-fire rate. The
internal fuel cell will sustain several hours of continuous
use before the reaction needs to be reversed through a
standard power source.
Heavy Disruptor Pistol by Volto-Avaiga
The Proverb 5 is a relatively large and
intimidating weapon. It provides a remarkable punch and exceptional
stopping power but needs to be reloaded frequently and suffers from a slow
fire rate and overheating if fired for a prolonged period. It is designed
to stop a situation quickly and effectively.
Disruptor Carbine by Volto-Avaiga
The Urbine is a short, versatile carbine
designed for prolonged use in close quarters. It provides bursts of only
moderate damage potential but with a high rate of fire. Used by a trained
operator, it is capable of operation for extended periods without reload.
