Harmonic Scattergun (Shotgun)
|Damage Per Hit||
20-gauge rail scattershot, coated in MK2 Electromagnetic Jacketing
The weapon saw extensive use in the Outer Rim War as USIF Armored Infantry soldiers quickly liberated captured colonies, where it proved invaluable in the confined urban areas of New Madrid and Atlas. The Arm of Orion also acquired the technology in the MAG-3B and incorporated it into their already existing shotguns.
The Anvil was designed to be a powerful scatter weapon that is most effective in close-quarters battle and lethal at point-blank range. Although the weapon has a slower rate of fire than most infantry weapons, it reloads faster than most due to its quick-loading charges.
The Anvil utilizes the Mk2 Electromagnetic jacketing system. Each 20-gauge slug (filled with titanium bearings) is coated in a harmonically tuned electromagnetic field, which wreaks havoc with enemy shielding, armor, and flesh at close range.
