A handheld rifle that is carried by most troops. The plasma rifle uses a microfusion reactor and a supply of deuterium to generate a high energy plasma, which is then injected along the rifle to create a plasma projectile that is layered much like an onion. As the projectile impacts the target, it envelops it, spreading damage evenly across the entirety of the target.
Plasma based weapons come in a number of configurations, and are made by many manufacturers. However, the Cha'aan based Naruni Enterprises owns the majority of the manufacturing contracts for the Mrrshan Military. Here are a few of the more common ones in use:
