Variants

AP Heavy Pistol

AP Heavy Pistol 0-8" +3 8-16" 0 16-24" -6 -- 14 2 (1 in CC) AP CC

The AP Heavy Pistol is the anti-armor variant of the popular Heavy Pistol. The characteristic Ariadnan Teseum stockpiles allow for the manufacture of large-caliber ammunition for handguns capable of functioning as a short-range anti-armor solution despite the weapon's small size. However, actually firing one of these weapons with any accuracy requires intense training and considerable strength to compensate for their extraordinary recoil.

Assault Pistol

Human Sphere N3 Content.

A short range BS weapon characterized by its high rate of fire.

Assault Pistol 0-8" +3 8-16" 0 16-24" -6 -- 13 4 (1 in CC) N CC


The Assault Pistol is the evolution of conventional tactical handguns. Its reduced size and light weight, as well as a high penetration ability and large ammunition capacity, combines with its fully automatic fire to make this weapon the best choice for close combat.

The Assault Pistol was designed to complement the weaponry of assault troopers who sometimes have to fight in confined spaces where rifles are hard to use. The projectiles fired by this weapon have stopping and penetration power equivalent to rifle ammunition, but with conventional pistol ammunition dimensions. This gives its magazines a great capacity despite their small size. However, the excessive lightness of its ammunition paired with its high rate of fire notably reduces its precision at medium range and beyond.


Breaker Pistol

A Pistol model capable of loading Breaker Special Ammunition.

Each of the many types of Breaker Pistols available in the arms market is based on a different proprietary technology, from nanotechnological, to viral, to electromagnetic, etc. However, they are all alike in their ability to reduce the effectiveness of the target's biotech defenses, thus increasing the lethality of their projectiles. This sidearm is restricted to military and law enforcement officials, but the cheaper Breaker Pistol models are widespread across the black markets and can be found in the inventory of freelance arms dealers everywhere in the Sphere.

The name of the Stun Pistol is applied to several different weapons which shoot disabling non-lethal ammunition. Although the kind of ammunition used varies, from the most advanced Nanotech projectiles, to the classic electric darts, through bio-chemical options, or sonic or gas discharge, the purpose is the same in all of them: to stop an opponent at short range or engaged in a melee. Stun Pistols are weapons designed for police use as an alternative detention system against dangerous or highly aggressive individuals. These weapons are under legal supervision in all nations of the Human Sphere, but are relatively common in frontier territories, where their sales are barely controlled.
