Description: An acronym within an acronym the semi automatic microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation aka "The Nexu" is a larger scaled rifle version of the Chiss Ascendancy's Maser pistol. Designed and developed by the imperial government as a replacement for the traditional 'Charric,' the weapon was made to be a more compact rifle made for effective use in both urban combat and tight quarters of star ship hulls. The weapon system uses kinetic energy instead of standard blaster bolts to fight against force using opponents, and is more capable of knocking a lightsaber out of enemy combatants hands if the bolt is blocked than a blaster. The blasts from the gun also cannot be reflected back at the shooter, due to their nature. The Nexu however suffers in long range accuracy due to its more compact size, allowing it mainly to be effective in the proximity of 400 meters on a point target.
