Ball Gun


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.
