Arc Weapons are a type of weapon used by Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii. Powered by permacapacitors shipped from Mars, these ancient weapons store energy from the days when the Imperium was young. They discharge with a loud crack, firing a bolt of blue-white electricty that can fry a man's brain or overload a warmachine's circuits in seconds. One shot from an Arc Pistol can cause a Grot to explode or stop an Ork's heart and punch it backwards with the force of its energy.
