Ranged Energy Firearms

weapon (ranged)

Ranged energy weapons available to military personnel and civilians in the modern era.


Ranged Energy Firearms
Energy weapons are strictly restricted to military and police forces on Strata. Civilian armour on Strata tends to be weak against energy weapons, but military armour lacks this weakness. Criminal groups have been known to acquire ranged energy weapons in small numbers via the black market, but the disproportionately harsh and swift response by Strata authorities keeps such incidents rare and the number of contraband energy weapons rare.

The Operation Raven house-rule of -1AP for all ranged weapons has been included in these statistics.
