Rifle

The rifle is the standard BS weapon. A versatile firearm, it has considerable power and is most effective at medium range. Due to its success as a standard-issue gun, it is the basis for a profusion of variants.

The rifle is the inseparable companion of the infantry soldier: conceived for mass combat, it is now the most common weapon in the battlefields of the Sphere. Recent technological advances have made it more lightweight and accurate, making it viable for covert operatives.

Nowadays, both normal rifles and their more modern Combi and MULTI counterparts have standardized modular attachments that can be used to install the mechanism and ammunition of the light version of a shotgun, a flamethrower or a grenade launcher. This external module is usually a single piece, barely altering the external aspect or the weight of the weapon. These attachments are connected to the trigger mechanism for ease of use, making reactive fire a possibility. Armies with the budget and technology to afford these modules make frequent use of them for their undeniable versatility.


Variants

AP Rifle

The main feature of this variant of the Rifle is that it uses AP Special Ammunition.

Short Medium Long Maximum
AP Rifle 0-8" 0 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 3 AP Suppressive Fire

Armor-Piercing Ammunition is frequently manufactured using Teseum, a costly neomaterial that is lightweight but very resistant to deformation, making it perfect for armor penetration. Teseum is the only reason why light weapons such as Rifles can load and fire Armor-Piercing rounds effectively. Any other material would deteriorate the accuracy and fire rate of the weapon. The abundance of Teseum ore in the soil of planet Dawn gives the Ariadnan military forces a steady supply of this powerful Special Ammunition that other armies in the Sphere can only dream of.


Breaker Rifle

This version of the conventional Rifle uses Breaker Special Ammunition.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
Breaker Rifle 0-8" 0 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 3 Breaker Suppressive Fire

Breaker Ammunition is named after its ability to break through its target's Biotech shielding. As a technical munition, its development is closely tied to an advanced understanding of biotechnological and pharmaceutical sciences. The Haqqislamite military industry has, unsurprisingly, pioneered the application of these technologies to multipurpose medium calibers. Despite its initial success, manufacturing Rifle-usable Breaker Ammunition is still too expensive a procedure to consider for mass production, so its use is restricted to select units.


Combi Rifle

A more modern variant of the Rifle, this weapon is less cumbersome and more accurate at close ranges, giving it a positive MOD at Short Range.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
Combi Rifle 0-8" +3 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 3 N Suppressive Fire

The Combi Rifle is a lightweight, easy to handle firearm, perfect for the dynamic demands of a modern warfare environment. Its design maximizes recoil suppression and aim optimization, giving it excellent accuracy both at close and medium ranges.


Breaker Combi Rifle

A version of the Combi Rifle that employs Breaker Special Ammunition.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
Breaker Combi Rifle 0-8" +3 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 3 Breaker Suppressive Fire

Breaker Combi Rifles are categorized as advanced weapons because their ammunition, called Breaker for its capacity to break through a soldier's BTS, is an example of the most sophisticated military technology in the Human Sphere.


K1 Combi Rifle

A version of the Combi Rifle customized to use K1 Special Ammunition.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
K1 Combi Rifle 0-8" +3 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 12 3 K1 Anti-materiel, Suppressive Fire

A complex process of customization allows these Combi Rifles to fire the dreaded K1 ammunition, projectiles capable of penetrating the thickest armor with negligible loss of momentum.


MULTI Rifle

Human Sphere N3 Content.

MULTI Rifles are variants of the Combi Rifle that give their user the ability to choose between three different Shooting Modes on the fly.

This new Weapon Profile replaces the version previously shown in Infinity N3.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
MULTI Rifle (Burst Mode) 0-8" +3 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 3 AP/Shock Light MULTI, Suppressive Fire
MULTI Rifle (Anti-materiel Mode) 0-8" +3 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 1 DA Anti-materiel, Light MULTI
MULTI Rifle (Stun Mode) 0-8" +3 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 1 Stun Light MULTI, Non-Lethal


The MULTI Rifle is a modern version of the Combi Rifle, a very complex machine available only to the more technologically or financially blessed armies of the Sphere. The MULTI Rifle is given only to specially prepared troops who have received both extensive tactical training—to make the most of the versatility of this costly weapon—and technical education—to be able to perform the daily maintenance of its complex machinery. What few contest is the effectiveness of this type of gun, one of the best tools any soldier could receive to maximize his output of lethal damage against any enemy.


Plasma Rifle

A hyper-technological variant of the Combi Rifle that fires Plasma Special Ammunition. This exotic, alien weapon is the rarest Rifle used on the battlefields of the Human Sphere.

The Plasma Rifle possesses two different Shooting Modes from which players can choose.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
Plasma Rifle (Blast Mode) 0-8" +3 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 3 Plasma Impact Template (Small Teardrop), Suppressive Fire
Plasma Rifle (Hit Mode) 0-8" +3 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 14 3 Plasma Suppressive Fire

The Plasma Rifle is the best example of the quality and the level of sophistication of VoodooTech, the high technology of the Ur Rationalists. Human scientists study and analyze these guns tirelessly, hoping to crack the secrets of their mechanisms to reproduce them with human technology. Members of very select special forces are occasionally allowed to use weapons captured from the enemy, so it is conceivable that some human troops would use these Rifles for black ops. Plasma Rifles are valuable loot for any soldier able to get their hands on one, and they have been known to fetch very high prices in clandestine scientific operations and the black market of weapons.

T2 Rifle

Human Sphere N3 Content.

This version of the conventional Rifle has been specially adapted to shoot T2 Special Ammunition.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
T2 Rifle 0-8" 0 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 3 T2 Anti-materiel, Suppressive Fire


The T2 Rifle is an unique variant of the standard rifle which has been adapted to shoot the exceptionally powerful and expensive T2 ammunition. This version has a damage capability higher than any other duty long gun, but without modifying the basic characteristic of a rifle. Its main advantage over the standard rifle is the capability of causing critical damage to the target, resulting in high levels of lethality. Thanks to the T2 ammunition, the effective damage stats of this weapon reach and even surpass the stats of other support weapons considered more powerful or sophisticated.


Viral Combi Rifle

Human Sphere N3 Content.

A variant of the Combi Rifle specially designed to shoot Viral Special Ammunition.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
Viral Combi Rifle 0-8" +3 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 3 Viral Suppressive Fire


This highly advanced version of the Combi Rifle can only be seen in military units characterized by their access to cutting-edge weaponry. In other combat forces, its use is restricted to elite operatives.


Viral Rifle

Human Sphere N3 Content.

A variant of the Rifle loaded with Viral Special Ammunition.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
Viral Rifle 0-8" 0 8-16" +3 16-32" -3 32-48" -6 13 3 Viral Suppressive Fire


The Bureau for Weaponry Research and Development of the Diwân al Jund contacted the Haqqislamite pharmaceutical industry to develop light caliber Viral ammunition that could be loaded in a basic infantry weapon. The main reason of the Haqqislamite technicians for this decision was to equip the regular soldier with a weapon with superior lethal force than that of the standard rifle. The success of this type of weapon took the Haqqislamite weapon industry to the top of the Stock Market. However, the high cost of Viral ammunition prevents it from being a regular sight on the battlefield.
