The HLW04 started as a copy of the Kittani Spider Gun, but the Darkwaters saw fit to modify it to taste, using different technologies. First, they eliminated the separate lower-powered laser and inside used a variable-mode, variable-frequency main laser barrel to combine the functions of both the light and heavy barrels. The Darkwater Tinkers then used some of the savings in weight to add a superior beam focusing system and smart-sight. Finally, the three-shot smoke grenade launcher was replaced with a six-shot Naruni-style micro-missile launcher. The HLW04 retains the spider-legs and automated robotic AI of the original design and thus can be set as a watchdog, rearguard, or hull defender.

The HLW04DwC is a modification of the HLW04, only with a small contra-gravity generator replacing the spider-legs. The weapon can now float/fly alongside its operator, being fired remotely, or respond as a separate flying gun platform. Up to six HLW04DwCs can be remotely operated/attached to a warrior in combat, often assuming positions at the cardinal points when in zero gee.
