The Inferno Pistol is a pistol-sized melta weapon of highly specialised and ancient technology created by Artificers. They are close to impossible to recreate and are rarely used as only a mere handful of them may exist in each Sector of space.
They are as powerful as a Multi-melta, but have about one quarter of a multi-melta's range.[Needs Citation] The Inferno Pistol is available for use by the most privileged members of the Ordo Hereticus and Adepta Sororitas.
The Blood Angels use a variation known as the Infernus Pistol, which are prized relics of the Chapter dating back to the Dark Age of Technology. One of the more famous users of the Infernus Pistol is Commander Dante of the Blood Angels, whose sidearm is known as the Perdition Pistol.
