~ Alan Rivers
The TS-04 Laser Rapier is a weapon used in System Shock.
This energized lance projects a mono-filament thread that is suspended in a contained energy field. Upon contact, the thread slices through organic and synthetic materials, permanently disabling most creatures and robots. The Rapier is usually carried only by senior security officers and military commanders.
It's important to remember that this weapon uses energy. It deals no damage if the reserves are depleted.
The player can use the Rapier to clean up the Station of nearby unwanted objects by striking them. However, using the SparqBeam is a much better idea, as it has practically unlimited range, is easier to aim and also much more energy-efficient on lower energy settings (ideally between o and w letters).
- Most of the weapons' names in System Shock are derived from the initials of the game's makers. In this case, TS stands for Tim Stellmach.
- The Mark IV Laser Rapier is an inferior version of this weapon, used during the 22nd century.
