STRENGTHS
  • Mauler: The caliber and rate of fire makes this weapon capable of ripping appart both organic and droid opponents, even Baeldurin phenotype Draelvasier can be ripped to shreds if the full weight of fire this weapon produces is brought to bear
  • Armour Penetration: Due to the muzzle velocity and mass of the rounds fired even standard slugs are capable of penetrating armour

WEAKNESSES
  • Rate of fire: The rate of fire and recoil makes this weapon uncontrollable on full auto unless wielded by a very strong or mechanically assisted user
  • Limited ammunition: Compared to blasters the magazine of the Mauler is small for its fire rate, and isn’t suited to a suppression role

DESCRIPTION

Created to fill the role of the primary heavy infantry weapon the Mauler lives up to its name. The main role it is used in is the elimination of light armoured vehicles and enemy heavy infantry by weight of fire. The large caliber used by the weapon allows it to use nearly any slug, including armour piercing, high explosive, and other exotic ammunition types.

The weapon was partially designed to counter the threat Baeldurin subtype Draelvasier posed to the primarily blaster armed Nothmiro Peacekeeper Corps infantry, and the high stopping power and armour penetration potential makes it a prime choice should the federation ever cross that faction on the field of battle.
