Description: The Viper Gas gun is produced by SiegeWorks Manufactory subsidiary, SiegeWorks Tools. Primarily designed as a tool to aid in construction and repair, it stores gas in the stock of the weapon, with a removable backup tank located underneath the barrel. The Viper forces the stored gas out of the ceramic barrel under incredible pressure, a small magnetic field and laser emitter at the end of the barrel ionizes the gas, creating plasma, and directs it away from the user. The range is relatively short as the plasma quickly disperses, however it can reach temperatures of around 5000 Kelvin, hot enough to melt any metal. The barrel of the weapon does quickly degrade from use, causing the weapon to become unsafe, thus it is easily replaceable by the user. The Viper is capable of using a multitude of gases, however is it designed with the idea of using Oxygen or Nitrogen. The recoil generated from firing the gas gun is immense, more than an average, unaided, Terran could handle, thus the use of the Viper requires the operator to be using an engineering exoskeleton designed to handle the forces involved.

yeah, i'd punch an old lady.
Everything's gunpowder if you have enough oxidizer.

I sat there researching plasma physics for this so I wouldn't get shouted at for doing something super unrealistic.
Pretty sure I still did but Sci-Fi ho!

This I'm on the fence about because as a weapon it would be OP as fuck since it can melt any metal, thus it could melt any armor and the person wearing it. But it also makes sense from the 'it is a tool' perspective since I imagine one of it's primary uses would be helping to cut up dead space ships for salvaging purposes.

I considered that, but you only really get two shots out of it, one from an internal tank and a second from an optional external tank, but the tanks are heavy and bulky along with the weapon being quite heavy and bulky. I figured it'd be super impractical as an actual weapon but useful in specialised situations, such as ship breaching. Plus it'll break down after a few shots due to the heat damaging the tool itself.

I'll need to come up with some way of limiting it's lethality a little bit more though, just anything that's firing plasma is going to be hot as fuck.

approved

valid points all around and after giving this additional thought(after forgetting to post that I'd be doing so) it makes sense to exist. In combat it's an impractical weapon from what's been said and it makes sense as a tool for salvage operations. Once another GM approves it I'll move it to the appropriate section

Um...should I merge this with Siegeworks? Or just make it it's own thread?

I'll add it onto the catalogue when I get some free time and then delete the thread.
