Development Thread: N/A
Manufacturer: Hekler'Kok Defense Industries
Model: Masterkey Mk.I
Production: Mass Produced
Description: Designed by Noah for the Dominion,due to the need for a underslung CQC weapon and breaching tool. In the past these weapons were usually underslung shotguns,but Corek decided to take it up a notch and designed a weapon that shot electrically charged slugs. This weapon works by building up a big enough charge and once the charge is at a high enough level,it is expelled from the barrel. There are two main advantages to this weapon,it has a high capacity with a 10 round slug external magazine and it has a few different levels of charge,ranging from non-lethal to armor-piercing. There are also two main weaknesses,one being that it takes five seconds for it to even reached its weakest setting and a minute to reach its most deadly one,the other one is its battery,even though it has a magazine,that just holds the the ammunition,it relies on a internal battery and can shoot 10 slugs at its weakest setting with the batteries charge but only one shot at its deadliest level. At its deadliest level,the charged slug can easily cut through a inch of durasteel,due to is nature of being a masterkey to easily breach doors.
