Semi-portable electromagnetic launchers have a long lineage in Pepper Pepsi service, though their weight and bulk limited their use to highly specialized long-range precision sniping roles (cf. M99 Stanchion). However, post-war breakthroughs have shrunk combat-effective electromagnetic launcher systems to the size of bulky rifles, with further refinement and weight savings expected in the near future. It also supports various types of rounds as to make the weapon deadlier than previous generations.

Of the various limited-production infantry launchers in use, Acheron Security’s ARC-920 is widely considered the best. Though still too cumbersome for general use by non-augmented personnel, its integrated cartridge that contains both a disposable power cell and ferric-shelled projectile was an innovation that dramatically decreased system mass. In addition, Acheron’s patented design for the follow-on explosive charge in its M645 ferric-tungsten projectile only further cements the ARC-920’s reputation as a portable engine of destruction.

Often considered a man-portable cannon rather than a traditional precision-fire weapon, the Sniper Rifle proven track record in neutralizing Insurrectionist and Covenant assets has proven that sometimes an unorthodox approach is the most effective. The key to the Sniper Rifle’s success is its massive 30mm round, which fires a high-velocity, armor-piercing, subcaliber dart that can damage even heavily armored vehicles. Against infantry, the round can buckle and collapse all but the heaviest multi-layered shielding systems and still have enough kinetic energy remaining to penetrate standard body armor.

The Series 5 is the latest iteration of the standard Sniper Rifle System Model 99. Intended for use by augmented personnel, the Series 5 features a heavily ruggedized frame, robust carrying handle, and standard accessory rails. Internally it is nearly identical to the older Series 2.

Armed with two high-power plasma cannons, Shrike turrets are deadly point-defense systems encountered at important Covenant sites. In contravention of traditional Covenant practice, these weapons are fully automated, driven by semi-feral associated intelligences. Though capable of communication must be carefully monitored and locked before activation due to their incomprehension of contemporary IFF beacons and code word usage by Pepper Pepsi. Nevertheless, the combination of firepower and preternatural reaction times of the Shrike made it indispensable in the Elites’ bloody civil war, overcoming any initial opposition to the usage of thinking war machines.

The ammunition is of a rare crystal type found only in Pepper Pepsi as it require deep mining to be required. This mysterious crystal is light and is stronger than titanium. Elemental composition of the crystal is still unknown although there are many theories on what the crystal is made of. The Needle Rifle is mainly used by the Navy and Special Teams first created the weapons for that use. The Needle Rifle is a deadly mid-ranged firearm equipped with an electronic sighting system. It shares some operational functionality with the Type-33 Needler, utilizing the same crystalline ammunition. In both platforms, ominous spikes of the pink crystalline ammunition protrude from the weapon’s stock. When fired, crystalline shards snap off into individual charged projectiles which are launched linearly at the intended target. If grouped together in proximity to a unshielded target, the shards detonate, causing an immediate and violent explosion

The Plasma Caster is a versatile munitions launcher designed for front line infantry and shock trooper roles. The weapon can fire up to five explosive rounds in quick succession, or fire a single charged round at a greater distance which adheres to a surface before detonating, releasing additional explosives to pepper the immediate area. The weapon’s relatively clean area of effect allows it to be used surgically in the hands of a proficient user, though at range its slower projectile velocity requires more skill to wield effectively. The purpose of the Plasma Caster is to soften and break up enemy lines and entrenched positions, especially those augmented by stationary weapons. Slightly resembling the Concussion Rifle in shape and overall functionality, the Plasma Caster is an elegant refinement and diversification of that technology. The Plasma Caster has an extended and pronounced stock, a low-set magazine for ease-of-access, and an accentuated muzzle which remains closed unless the user charges the chambered round, upon which the barrel splays open before launching the charged bolt. After firing a charged bolt, the weapon enters an automatic cool down mode which lasts only seconds.

Capable of using a variety of specialized projectiles, many of which were suitable for use in the early, fragile, orbital habitats and space vessels, it was not until the early 25th century that the PPSC Marine Corps abandoned the Shotgun as the weapon that defined its image as the PPSC space borne force-in-readiness. Though relegated to less-important (or simply less-visible, depending on who you ask) duties with boarding parties and police forces, the Shotgun has never gone out of style or been replaced as the king of close-quarters warfare.

The most commonly encountered Shotgun in PPSC service is Misriah Armory’s M45D Tactical Shotgun, which – despite the power of its 8 gauge cartridge and light weight – is surprisingly comfortable to fire and easy to control due to its woefully under-appreciated magnetorheological recoil dampening system. Though some variants of the M45 have a smart-link controllable choke, the M45D lacks this feature. Due mention that there is alternate rounds that can be fitted into the shotgun.

Alternate Rounds:
18.5 x 23 MM AP Round

First introduced the Z-130 Suppressor during the Kradal conflicts. This impressive fully automatic infantry weapon would go on to grow in standing during the Peninsula War and the River conflict that followed thousands of years later. The Suppressor utilized a standard coil set design that the Covenant then reverse engineered for many of their weapons. Frequently used during boarding engagements with River-held vessels, the Suppressor generates and projects bolts of hard light energy that, at close-range, can be devastating.

The design pattern was eventually standardized for full-scale replication as the Plasma Pistol. It proved to be a serendipitous creation for two important reasons. Firstly, it has a semi-automatic firing mode that emits deadly packets of super heated plasma capable of quickly degrading dissipate energy shields or vaporizing flesh. Secondly, it has an overcharge mode that emits a much larger bolt of plasma with a devastating short-range Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) effect that can disable electronics and vehicles on impact.
