A revolutionary weapon for it’s time, the Beam Rifle is the primary weapon used by the Gundam.
Making use of the Federations E-cap (or “energy capacitor”) technology, the rifle uses charged concentrations of Minovsky particles as ammunition.
This gives the beam rifle firepower equivalent to that of a battleship’s beam cannons.
As the Minovsky particles destroy matter on a molecular scale, the beam rifle can penetrate even the thickest armor and destroy its target with a single shot.
One weak point of the rifle was its energy limits. The rifle could only be fired 16 times before depleting its energy and becoming useless.
