Shield Rifle

These firearms rely on electromagnetic firing mechanisms similar to railguns, though shield rifles’ design and thinner protective housing cause the weapons to practically bleed energy. Although only faintly visible in isolation, the electrical discharges from entire platoons wielding shield rifles can illuminate their surroundings with haunting light.

Projectile Weapons

Projectile weapons fire solid rounds, such as bullets or rockets. While projectile weapons are relatively antiquated, they provide serviceable firepower at a reasonable price to many travelers and traders.
