Power maul

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Power mauls are Imperial Power Weapons most commonly used by the Adeptus Arbites[1] but also utilized by other armies such as the Adeptus Astartes.[4]

Effectively a baton surrounded by a power field, the power maul has a hidden subtlety: the power field setting can be extensively adjusted so that its disruption effect can vary from bashing a hole through a wall, to delivering a sudden knock-out blow to an individual. This tactical depth-of-use makes it a valued tool of Imperial law enforcement. Arbites shock troops employ the weapon in combination with the suppression shield in breaking up riots.[1]

A similar weapon is the shock maul, which uses an electrical discharge instead of a power field to incapacitate the enemy.[2][3]
