Ball-Gun (Grenade Launcher, TL8) Skill: Heavy Weapons (Launchers)
The Ball-Gun began as an improvised non-lethal weapon but proved so useful that manufacturers on Mars began to produce them for law enforcement and the militia. It fires a variety of 60mm balls at varying speed using a spring and compressed gas. The range can be set using an integral laser range finder. It has the revolving configuration, favoured on Mars.
Numerous special rounds exist for the Ball-Gun. Any type of grenade listed in the core Rulebook can be found as Ball-Gun ammo (though generally only the Martian Militia have access these) and even Glow Balls can be fired from the weapon.
