Cyborg Reaper by Alighierian Cyborg Reaper by Alighierian
In great secrecy, Cyborg industries managed to succeed where many have failed: they created a plasma weapon which could be easily hidden by operatives or spies, as wel as being usable for tank crews. And despite its size, it is comparable to high-grade plasma assault rifles in terms of fire-power.

The main obstacle the engineers had was how to get rid of the heat. The larger plasma weapons have the space to incorporate large cooling systems, but that was not an option, for the whole idea was to keep it small.
Then one of the engineers came up with a brilliant solution: the heat would be thrusted out of the gun by flaps on the side during use.

Because the gun had to be collapsible, large optics were also out of the question. Instead, the Special Tech Division designed small, collapsible all weather holosights. These sights, despite only being 1/4th inch thick, have zoom, night and thermal capabilities.

Lights indicate readiness of item

green: ready for use
red: collapsed / venting heat

The batteries have indicators which show the status of the clip

green: locked & charged
red: not connected to weapon
grey: empty

To avoid detection, the lights have three settings:

normal: you can see the lights at any given time
stealth: special eye implants needed to see lights (standard for spec ops operatives), implants need to be calibrated to exactly the same frequency, so only the user can see them (every weapon has a slightly different frequency)
off: completely off to conserve energy in storage / during travel

From top to bottom:

- ready
- ejecting battery and venting heat
- collapsed and unloaded

That is very sweet! I like the idea. where can I get one on the black market, and for how much?

thanks, glad you like it =D

and i've been wondering the same thing, but Cyborg industries is very good at preventing their stuff from ending up on the black market, so i think i'll be a while until we can get our hands on one =C
same goes for the Inquisitor [link] and the Lancaster [link]

hmmmmm Sounds like a company I know of... DARC Arms division of DARC Corp... You can never get their top line particle beam rifles on the street...It really sucks.... Ya just have to go with the cheap knock offs that tend to either over heat and blow up, or have power cell rupture issues when you charge em... and blow up.... either way it's just not the same thing... ahhh well... I guess you'll have that eh? Hope you have a good one! I can't wait to see more!
