Laser Rifle

An invention of the Diamon Sword tribe, the Artemis, or 'longrifle', named after the Greek Goddess of archery, is most often used by them. A deadly long range weapon that, like the blaster, feeds off an armour's engery supply; the Artemis can pierce the hardest armour from kilometers away. Keyed to an image enhancer, a sniper can take out an enemy from relative safety from some distance. The amount of damage dealth out is proportional to the amount of stored energy in the armour's power cell. The more energy discharged with the shot, the more damage dealt to the target. A complex and power-intensive weapon, it can only be used by a tribesman in light armour carrying an energy pack.
