PlasmaRifle.png

Plasma rifles and casters are high tech energy weapons that fire superheated bolts of plasma. These bolts form into toroids in the plasma chamber, which are then sent down a superconducting barrel, propelled, and in some models stabilized, by electromagnetic claws upon exiting it. Initially, the weapon was a bulky, industrial plasma caster, manufactured by Winchester Arms; while it performed admirably, it was expensive and required specialized training to use. However, later developments for the United States military led to a more compact design that was cheaper to produce and easier to train for, perfectly suited for urban warfare.
