  • Material: Durasteel, blaster components
  • Classification: Blaster Assault Rifle
  • Size: Handheld
  • Length: 60 cm
  • Weight: 3.5 kg

  • Fires Blaster Bolt and Ssi-Ruuvi Paddle beamer simultaneously.
  • Blaster Bolt and Ssi-Ruuvi bolt travel with equal velocity, hitting targets at exactly the same time
  • Fires both bolts from the same powercell

The Ssi-Ruuvi Paddle Beamer is a different sort of blaster bolt. Rather than being lethal it paralyzes a target, penetrating through armor, shielding, and even bending around lightsaber blades to hit their targets. Intelligent Force Users have found a fix to the problem, recalibrating their lightsabers to redirect the ion beam at an angle rather than allowing it bend around, but it presents a problem. Namely that the lightsaber cannot deflect traditional blaster bolts any longer. Many weapons since the gulag plague have integrated Paddle Beamer and blaster technology into combined packages, but Natasha actually fires both paddle beam and blaster bolt simultaneously. They reach their target at the same time, and the end result is an attack that will hit it's target regardless of lightsaber configuration and deflection.

  • Fires Blaster bolt and Ssi-Ruuvi Paddle beam simultaneously, allowing penetration through any lightsaber
  • Paddle beam bolts go through traditional armor, shielding, and lightsabers as described above. After hitting a target they work against it's nervous system, often paralyzing whatever part of the body it hits.(The extent of the damage is of course determined by the writer taking the hit)
Weaknesses :
  • With an effective range of only twenty five meters Natasha is much more suited to prowl cities than ravage battlefields.
  • With only twenty shots per powercell Natasha's user will often have to reload in the middle of fights, rather than between battles.
  • While Natasha will always get through a lightsaber which bolt gets through is dictated by the opponent, allowing a cunning foe to take the lesser of two hits.

Since the end of the Four Hundred years darkness the Ssi-Ruuvi Paddle Beamer has come on hard, with a popularity previously unheard of. First adapted by the Lords of the Fringe in the SRR-01 the rifle fired both blaster bolts and paddle bolts interchangeably, but had many problems. It fired them separately. It required two forms of ammunition. It was far too large for the majority of species. Overall improvements needed to be made, and they were by a variety of sources in the galaxy. Since that time the technology has been put into Bowcaster Quarrels, Stun Batons, Wrist and Underbarrel attachments, hidden weapons in prosthesis and has even been expanded into scatterblasters. These improvements have notably foregone the previous requirement of entechment made powercells, allowing for new possibilities.

Enter Kael Rose, a man who trusts hot tibanna rather than shell casings, who came up with an idea. If a powercell could charge up tibanna gas and Ssi-Ruuvi ion bolts, why not both at the same time? Sure, the power draw would be significant, but most mercs would be okay with using a few more powercells if the results were achieved. It took a good bit of tinkering, but with the advent of the Incapacitator being a free-market weapon that used a single powercell for both mode of firing a successful reverse engineer was inevitable. From there the firing sequence of the paddle beam was carefully coordinated to be equally as quick and precise as a standard blaster bolt. The mechanism was slapped into an old classic frame, the E-22, and tested extensively before Kael made a half dozen that he could take pride in.

To be fair, Natasha isn't a bruiser. The Ssi-Ruuvi paddle beam is no more effective than usual, and the blaster bolt itself is nothing to write home about. The range of the blaster suffers in comparison even to pistols, and the bolt is no more penetrative or powerful than a standard rifle. Individually neither is exceptional, but together they provide a unique combination that is matchless against lightsaber deflection. Overall Natasha is not a weapon that will garner any one hit kills or rend any limbs, but is a change of pace weapon that can catch foes offguard and be a driving force for victory by a smart combatant.
Hello, I'll be the factory judge reviewing your submission. If you have questions, please feel free to respond to this thread once we are underway.
Hi! This sub seems to be fine, but I'd like to see it stated somewhere that Natasha will not paralyze its opponents without the writer's permission. That'll be all, though - nicely done!
