  • Classification: Slugthrower
  • Size: Large
  • Weight: Heavy
  • Ammunition Type: Slugs/Power Cell
  • Ammunition Capacity: 1800(1-10 shots)
  • Reload Speed: Average
  • Effective Range: Long Range
  • Rate of Fire: Very High
  • Stopping Power: Very High
  • Recoil: High


  • Specialized open ended skirt ammunition allows for superposed load (multiple projectiles in a single barrel)
  • Thirty-Six barrels can fire between five and fifty projectiles per shotburst for one hundred eighty to the full magazine of 1800 rounds per shot
  • Power Cell integrated into magazine


  • Heavy damage capability, incredibly effective against unarmoured or lightly armoured targets
  • Ten shot magazine and relatively straightforward reloading process
  • Better range than your average scattergun


  • Rounds will not penetrate heavy armour
  • Heavy recoil even with electronic firing mechanism
  • Requires specialized ammunition not compatible with any other weaponry
  • Heavier and bulkier than other comparable shotguns
  • Reloading the weapon requires not only a magazine change, but the shells must be reloaded into the barrels, which takes several extra seconds
  • Extra magazines are large and heavy and will further encumber the wielder

Borrowing from more ancient ballistic weapon technology, rather than advanced railguns, the MS-66 utilizes simple engineering to produce an effective modern weapon, when combined with modern materials science. Liberal use of Denscris and Dallorian Alloy in the weapon's construction make it reliable even with repeated and extended use.

The weapon houses thirty six barrels into which the ammunition is loaded, end to end, with fifty rounds in each barrel. These can be electronically ignited in groups of five. Each barrel can be emptied in a fraction of a second, a fire selector switch allowing the wielder to choose between 180, 360, or 1800 round shots.

The rounds themselves are small, and contain their propellant charges in open skirts at the rear, where the nose of the following projectile provides the seal, preventing any gas prematurely igniting subsequent rounds. This is aided by the rearward pressure of a fired round pushing the subsequent projectiles back, and effectively sealing the barrel against premature firing. Though small caliber rounds, they are larger than shotgun pellets, and far more destructive, especially at speed and in thirty six streams of five at a time.
In combat, the unique and unmistakeable BRRRT sounding bark of these weapons signifies a very bad time for whoever they are turned against. Each blast of the weapons sends 180 projectiles downrange, spreading the fun far and wide for anything not behind thick armour.
