Prototypes of this advanced energy beam gun evolved from late-model beam sidearms. It delivers a powerful stream of ionic particles with more force than normal blaster guns.
The weapon can be found in the Alpha groove inside the corporate briefcase. While it's more effecient compared to the preceding weapons it consumes the energy rather quickly hence adequate stockpile of batteries or quick access to recharger stations are desirable.
- Most of the weapon names in System Shock are derived from the initials of the games developers. In this case, Robb Waters.
- The animation frame of this weapon firing is actually not shown in the game itself, even if present in the files. This applies to all versions except the Source Port update (and presumably the original Macintosh version).
