Quote from: [cancerblack] on Aug 05, 2023, 11:11:17 PMParticle beam phalanx is never shown. Sounds like it should be ship or vehicle mounted though, from the naming convention.Pulse rifles fire caseless slugs, and load in the same place most rifles or SMGs load. Because the props are literally modified tommy guns.As SiL says, the support weapons in that video clip are Smartguns, and are fed from a drum magazine on the side of the weapon.
