AMR-B21 Arc Generator - District 9

The ARC Gun from District 9 is about as cool as alien rifles get. It fires a protonic energy blast that turns the target into a superheated cloud of blood and gore. An indirect hit can cause terrible burns and dismemberment. The ARC Gun is coded with a biometric safety, only allowing it to fire in the hands of a Prawn, or in the exceptional case of Wikus, District 9's mutant protagonist.
