The CCP-04 is a combination light pistol/gauss weapon that fires a burst of needle-like projectiles. The force with which the projectiles are thrown can be varied, allowing for light incapacitating damage to ‘soft’ targets, or hypervelocity blasts that tear through megadamage flesh and armor.
Though the claw-needles individually do light damage, a burst of them can do substantial damage. Adding to their effectiveness, the Pantherons often envenom the needles with various toxins, collectively called ‘Scratch Fevers’, with effects ranging from debilitating illness to instant death.
The weapon’s stator coils are charged through contact-induction with the cyborg or android firing the weapon. If removed from such contact, the weapon’s integral batteries are only good for 36 shots before needing recharging.
The claw-needles can be filled or coated with various chemicals and toxins for added effect.
An integrated laser spot is installed into the pistol, granting +1 to strike.
