The Resurrection Effect
Though the face of war has changed over the past 300 years, independence and ideology are still human traits, and conflicts can still erupt in violence. As such, firearms are still the primary anti-personnel weapons of humanity. The primary division comes from the use of either plasma or particle projectiles. Both are fired using electromagnetic rails where the former uses ionized atmosphere and the later delivers a material object of some kind, either due to lack of atmosphere or for a secondary effect (shrapnel, chemical agent, nano agent, etc…).
|Pistol||High accuracy weapons that primarily deliver plasma projectiles since they are too small for both a power source and ammunition clip. They are favored in environments where mobility and speed are paramount.|
|Carbine||Primarily fired from the hip, almost all carbine are equipped with a laser sight to improve accuracy. The most versatile of firearm, they can serve almost any purpose, though there are capacity limitations.|
|Autocannon||Large and unwieldy, autocannons make up for their bulk with firing capacity. Though plasma launchers exist, these massive weapons are almost always used in conjunction with shells for material delivery.|
