[+] Stay Down: Because of the increased velocity of the rounds, it is highly unlikely that anyone would be able to react in time to block or dodge the slug. As it is a slugthrower, the rounds cannot be deflected back at the shooter.
[+] Accuracy: The lower calibre allowed for increased accuracy due to the low recoil.
[-] Reload Time: With only twelve slugs per clip, the user of this weapon will need to pause and reload, takes about fifteen seconds max to reload, assuming the user isn’t slippin’ with their clips.
[-] Jammin: If fired too quickly the Comet will jam and requires a cool down period of forty-five seconds and a reload before being able to fire again.
Description: When the First Order looked to fill its armoury, they turned to BVI. BVI proposed the OSM-10 or the Comet. A weapon with enough stopping power to enable personnel of the First Imperial Navy enough time to grab a more suitable weapon. The 10mm weapon with a high velocity enables the shooter to put an impact on his/her shots.
