Particle blaster SP-20 is positioned as secondary weapon for officers, crew members and as self-defence weapon for armor suit pilots. It's high-penetrating power allows to pierce even heavy armor suits. But, due to technological diffilcuties, Dragoon's ammo is limited by four charges. Each of four barrels' of the SP-20 has its own feed system, particle projectors and energy supply. Solar Industries gurantee at least 20 shots by each projector until it nees repairs and service. SP-20 has brilliant future as a firearm for boarding teams, close combat antimateriel weapon, and, may be, perfect weapon for hitmans.

Note: It is plasma accelerator firearm. Cylinder shells are not bullets, but just a container with working mass and a huge capacitor. So it CAN fire using round shells and rectangular barrels.
not to mention, you can't fire that weapon, it'd brake you wrist!
Okay; gonna gun-nerd critic, I mean no offense because this looks pretty epic; but I am an OCD-gun-nerd.
The handle (or whatever you want to call it) is an odd angle that the user would need to hold it with their arm at their side to fire, the four barrels (which are rectangular?) seem ineffective in ranged shots, the gun looks smaller than it's ammo, the buttons seem unnecessary, and I really don't see why it's design was as such, I am not trying to be an asshole, I just do not understand how it works, if I were to be enlightened, my opinion would change.
I apologize if I made offense.
And what are these chages, are they a kind of one use capacitor banks?
So, does this thing fire 4 energy shots at once in a spray-like burst?
Выглядит монструозно в хорошем смысле, вот только на ручку поликов пожалел опять
Ручка специально угловатая, вот!
Куда ты запропастился, упырь?
Just giving you positive critique on this...
Anyway, it isn't a «shot gun». Simply, it's a high energy «linear» accelerator. There's no difference between round, elliptical or rectangular muzzle.
Shells are round due to historical reasons and they're unified to particle (indeed, «particle» blasters and to mass drivers)
