/k/ommando passing through here.
I wondered what kind of firepower your fictional universes had to oppose the real world. I've seen some interesting stuff from Warhammer 40k, but anything is welcome.
I'm looking for:
-pics, preferably CGI
-gun porn (working firing cycles, field strips, exploded views etc.)
-short descriptions
I know it's somewhere between your damage charts and character sheets, hit me with it!

Pic unrelated. It's a Flammenwerfer. It werfs Flammen.

>The Harlequin's Kiss (Eldar: brathu-angau, "kiss of doom" or "kiss of evil") also known as Sting, is a tubular wrist-mounted Monofilament Injector. As the name suggests it is widely associated with the Eldar Harlequins. The Kiss is only effective in close combat. It contains a tightly-coiled retractable monofilament wire which is around 100 metres in length. When activated (often with a forward punching motion) the wire is violently released. Capable of piercing armour, if the wire penetrates its victim it instantly uncoils and lashes around violently, liquefying bones and internal organs, and causing immediate death. The wire then retracts back into the Kiss.

I play Battletech. We start with stuff like this in a man's hand, and work our way up to 100-ton walking tanks, intersystem warships that can bombard planets from orbit, and powered armors in the 1-15 ton range for good measure. Plus the usual variety of infantry, armored vehicles, and conventional fightercraft.

Battletech likes it's war toys. From the top down is a gyrojet rifle, a machinegun, a short range missle launcher and a laser pistol, from the Japanese version of the rulebook (which is exotic compared to the US version, artwise- but awesome)

Even though it's /v/ related, I love the guns from Mass Effect.

Instead of standard ammunition it fires shards from a solid block of metal. It fires these shards at FTL speeds; this is accomplished using the essentially magical Element Zero. These shards are also very, very small, meaning that you essentially will never have to reload during a battle.

Just the Shokk Attack Gun.
It sucks in little creatures called Snots, opens a safe tunnel through a realm of utter madness where, usually, nothing can survive, and throws them through said tunnel.
The other end of the tunnel is in your armor.
Or your body.
Yes, it basically teleports a rabid, scared to madness, little fuck inside you, where it claws its way from your entrails back to freedom.
And sometimes it malfunctions and opens a rift in reality. Or teleports the user.

Well, 40k has space ships with weapons designed for orbital bombardment, which would probably beat real word military by default (we have rather few anti-space ship weapons, after all).

On ground level, comparing the capabilities of modern armies and 40k factions would be hard, because the 40k rules aren't really designed to represent real war (the weapon ranges for example are pathetic because othervise you'd need really big tables to play the game). It should be noted, however, that the basic lasgun, jokingly referred as the flashlight because it's one of the weakest weapons in the game, is statvise equal to an autogun (ie. an assault rifle. Looks and presumably functions similarly to modern equivalents) and is cabable of blowing big chunks out of unarmoured humans (laser hitting flesh causes liquid in the tissues to rapidly vaporise).

Dear /k/, I will tell you how the 40k weapons generally work, by faction.

Humans are split into two major categories - WW2 grunts, most of whom carry pewpewlaserguns and have WW1 to WW2 era looking tanks. Their laser guns range from pistol to giant space battleship battery. They also use non-laser stuff, particularly on their tanks and other armored vehicles, but not as much as the other type of humans,

The SPESS MERHINES. Standard weapon is a huge gyrojet launcher. The projectiles are delayed-fuse armor piercing explosives. Also chainsaw swords. Lots of missiles and that type of stuff.

There are space elves, and as you've been told, they have a gun that shoots ninja stars and is made out of psychic plant/bone stuff. Pretty much everything they use is make out of psychic bone-plant stuff, including their jet-powered hovertanks with all their pewpewbeamguns and such. Some of their guns rip open holes in reality and suck in their victims.

Orks is space are basically what everyone thinks of slavshit, but moreso. Everything is strapped together using paperclips and rubber bands, and they generally go for quantity over quality. Expect a lot of boxy looking things that randomly spit bolts and screws all over the place. Some of their guns have laser pointers on them, but the lasers don't always point where the gun is going to shoot, so they just deal with it.

Tyranids are the hivemind space bugs. All of their guns are just more space bugs. Everything they shoot is all gloppy and gross, and most projectiles are themselves alive. They either break apart by impact, spewing their acid blood all over the place, or they dig in and eat their target inside out when they hit them. Nasty stuff.

Necrons are TERMINATORS in space, and their guns are fucking magnets how to they work. They pull off matter from their targets layer by layer, so they're called "flayers." Can't really armor up against that.

Tau are stereotypical sci-fi aliens and their tech is relatively hard-sci-fi compared to the other factions. They use lots of energy weapons, in particular pewpew plasma guns that shoot like star wars blasters. They also mount railguns on their hovertanks, use laser target designators, and lots of guided missiles to hit targets designated by said lasers. Also they have mecha with jetpacks and guns for jumping around, but they don't generally melee with them. They also have a gatling plasma/blaster gun that they mount on most of their hover vehicles.

>> No.15936526


Now this I understand.

Define "work". Does it go dakkadakka and spew bullets? Yes. Will it hit anything? No.
Also, the top gun will jam even more than usual on account of being turned upside down and using a Cmag, and its mechanism is linked to the bottom one which will also stop working.

Of note are the Sister of Battle, often referred to as Bolter Bitches. They mostly use SPESS MERHINE giant gyroget guns, but when things get too sticky for just that, they up-gun in a very specific manner. While the grunt guards of humans will pack laser cannons and big artillery, and the space marines will too, the Sisters answer all of their problems with FIRE. They bring flamethrowers by the metric fuckton, and for popping armored vehicles, they don't bother with missile launchers or laser cannons - they just bring anti-vehicle melta guns, a.k.a. we're going to super duper burn that tank to death. Meltas are very short range but very powerful, like a panzerfaust. Bolter bitches love getting all up in your business and then burning said business to the ground. If they haven't set it on fire by the end of the day, the Sisters are generally unsatisfied about it.

No, it does not. You need to read the codex more closely. The recoil from FTL bullets would vaporize everything forever in the vicinity of the fire...er. I dont recall exactly but I think the mass effect field propels the slivers and heat sinks captures the heat (duh).

The Dark Eldar use a variety of different weapons, as much intended for inflicting terror as being deadly on the field.

Their Warriors wield splinter-weapons as standard-issue armament. Housed inside each rifle is a poisoned crystal, and as the gun is fired, an electromagnetic field will break shards off from said crystal and propel them at hypersonic speeds to poison their targets in a most hideous fashion. There are pistol, rifle, and carbine variants, as well as the Splinter Cannon (which is effectively a squad-automatic weapon with additional recoil compensators and anti-grav harnesses, so it can be hipshot with relative accuracy).

In addition to splinter weapons, the Dark Eldar have "Darklight Weapons" which fire weaponized dark matter, the results being torn-apart by black-hole like forces upon impact. The DE use very sophisticated magnetic containment fields to ensure nothing goes wrong...the main such weapon is the Dark Lance, which is essentially a long-range anti-tank gun, carried either as an emplaced weapon or mounted on one of their gun carriages. Infantry might wield a mobile version called a Blaster, sacrificing range for the ability to be accurately fired on the move (similar stabilizers found in the Splinter Cannon), while officers and those of rank may have Blast Pistols instead.

>> No.15936705

good old necrons. you gotta love a gun that works by distabilising the bonds between the atoms of the target, then using electromagnetic force to pull these atoms away from them, thus causing the "flaying" effect

There are other assorted weapons as well. Some units may wield the Haywire Blaster, which is effectively an electromagnetic rifle, capable of electrocuting lightly-armored infantry though being better-used for frying enemy vehicles. The Disintegrator is a vehicle-mounted plasmacaster used for rapid bursts of energy to vaporize infantry. The Heat Lance is a specialized hybridization of Melta and Dark Matter technology, a breakthrough unknown to the rest of the galaxy as it allows them a mobile short-range tank-annihilator unknown to most. Shredders are effectively shotguns which fire a fast-spreading net of monowire, the results being targets getting turned into many bloody chunks...

The Haemonculi are alchemist-scientists that have many other devices which tech-wise may as well be magic. Liquifiers are specialized liquid-projectors which spew a mix of corrosive chemical compounds to turn infantry into bubbling piles of flesh. The Shattershard is a resonant piece of a mirror that when smashed will similarly shatter those whose reflection was caught in it. The Hexrifle is a sniper rifle that introduces a vector for a particular virus engineered toslowly turn its victim into a glass statue. The Dark Gate is thrown like a grenade and opens a portal to a realm of many many tentacles. They also build Talos, which are akin to combat-droids, only powered by torture-victims, or the hearts of forsaken children. These in turn can use a mix of conventional or arcane weapons (the Cronos variant in particular has several "Soul-draining" weapons).

Melee-wise, the Dark Eldar have a mix of melee weapons, some poisoned, some not. They may additionally have assorted forms of Power Weapon (think blades with an energy field, that can cut through armor), including Electrocorrosive Whips, Agonizers (think neural stunners), Huskblades (which suck a target's soul out), and Djinn-blades (animated self-sentient blades).

This is not so much /tg/, but I would love to see a tabletop system adapted for it.

This is from the comic Glimmer Rats. Very little explanation is given regarding the Glimmer, some alternate dimension alongside our own, but high tech stuff just doesn't work there. The first brigade of soldiers and scientists sent through were massacred instantly as intangible horrors popped out of their radios and dematerialized them inside their suits. Now the only occupying force there is a ragtag bunch of deserters and military criminals (some of whom were supposedly executed) sentenced to serve life in the Glim. They're shipped through in drop pods with less integrity than an ork segway, and most of the unfortunates die on impact. Those that survive have to make do with guns that are relics of decades ago and that won't kill most things that live in the Glim anyways. This is a surreal world where human presence shapes the landscape, making it more solid and less hostile. It feeds off of fear, weakness, and death, and even the ground often tries to kill you.

Oh, right. Why is this relevant? Critter storms.

As a surgical raiding force, the Dark Eldar use a *lot* of alternate modes of transport as well. The most iconic of these is the Raider (see pic), a vehicle with origins as a pleasureboat which uses a mix of solar sails, and antigrav engines to move around. It has next to no armor, and either relies on energy shielding or stealth-tech to protect itself from incoming fire. It serves as both a transport, and fire support carrying either a Dark Lance or Disintegrator (and there is a gunboat variant which sacrifices the ability to transport troops for slightly improved armor, more guns, and improved targeting systems). The Dark Eldar additionally love to customize their vehicles further with enhanced engines, chain snares, hallucinogenic gas grenade launchers, ammo dispensers for the passengers, etc.

An alternate transport is the Venom, a large version of an Eldar Jetbike which can carry 5 passengers instead of 10...smaller than the Raider, it's nevertheless agile, and rather well-armed for anti-personnel duty, with armament usually consisting of 2 Splinter Cannons.

Alternate modes of transport include having your bones hollowed out, and wings (and the muscles to control them for flight) being surgically added to your form among those. Another option is a hoverboard with built-in Splinter-Pod (a slightly slower-firing Carbine), or the Reaver Jetbike. The Jetbike is a fast yet flimsy vehicle equivalent to a Star Wars swoop bike, having a single Splinter Rifle (occasionally upgunned to a Blaster or Heat Lance), *lots* of scythes and bladed points for fly-by-slicing, and the occasional proximity-mine dispenser. The riders in turn usually are drugged up beyond recognition, their reflexes allowing them to fly the damn things in the first place.

(Forgot the pic. Damn captcha-issues)

There be other vehicles of course, besides the Raider, Ravager, and Venom. Occasionally some of the Reaver pilots get bored of biking, or get enough money to buy an aircraft instead. There are two main aircraft the Dark Eldar possess, including the Razorwing Fighter and Voidraven Bomber. The former has 2 lances, a Splinter weapon (either a twin-linked rifle, or a cannon), and 4 missiles (anti-infantry,and they can be all fired-at-once for fun times). The Voidraven has heavier armor, upgrades the Dark Lances to a heavier version called the Void Lance, and replaces the missiles/gun with an anti-tank bomb called a Void Mine (which creates a forcefield, then a dimensional portal to vaporize everything inside said field). It can optionally have 4 missiles aside from that.

There are numerous other pieces of auxiliary equipment of course. Specialized displacement forcefields, holographic projection units, plasma grenades, EMP grenades, etc. Aside from this, the Dark Eldar either tame or create assorted warbeasts and monsters for war as well. The Talos were mentioned, but other monsters include Grotesques (test subjects pumped full of osseovirals and macrosteroids and turned into dumb brutes used to smash stuff up), Ur-Ghuls (blind hunting creatures that use scent to track, and have *LOTS* of fierce jaws), Medusae (brain-parasites attached to a host, whose gaze can shred a person's mind...said hosts wear a helmet which they occasionally open in combat), Voidwing flocks (think flesh-eating bird swarms that can overwhelm a target then tear it apart), Khymerae (extradimensional beasts used like attack dogs), etc.

I'm a Warmahordes man, specifically Cygnar. As a general rule, Cygnar weaponry is very similar to the kind of shit they had in America and Britain between World Wars I and II. Breech-loader rifles, chain guns, rifle grenades, etc. True automatics are rare as all shit, mostly because the few designs in use are clunky pieces of junk and were offloaded on some trolls so that they'd go kill some people the Cygnarans didn't like. Revolvers and multi-barrel designs are fairly common.

Where shit gets crazy is with mechanika weapons (that is to say, weapons which mix magic and technology). A fair number of these are melee weapons, such as the mechanika swords issued to journeyman battle mages and the various electrical arms issued to the Storm Knights. In fact, Cygnar has a pretty big hard-on for electricity altogether. They use all kinds of swords, staves, guns and coils designed to blast holes in things with big bolts of lightning, many of which are designed to complement each other in interesting ways (increasing the power or range of other nearby devices, for example). There are also gun mages, who use pistols to fight. Their guns aren't mechanika, strictly speaking, as the only magic involved comes from the user. They can do some crazy shit with them though, like creating shockwaves or hitting a target who is completely concealed behind the wreck of a warjack (a giant steam-powered robot with a magical computer for a brain. not really a faction specialty, but they do use a lot of them).

Pic is a Storm Knight, electrical sword and all.
