Combi-weapons are guns used by Imperial Space Marine and Chaos Space Marine armies, and are essentially Boltguns incorporating a second weapon which is good for a single shot per battle. Only one of the component weapons may be fired at once. The recoil of this weapon may break of an unaugmented human arm, so any except a Space Marine cannot use it without harm to themselves. There are two ways of designating them, either Combi-(weapon) or Bolter-(weapon).

Condemnor Boltgun (Combi-Stake Crossbow)
The aptly named Condemnor boltgun strikes fear into the hearts of psykers across the galaxy. While the bolter is deadly enough, the blessed Purgatus stake-bolts fired from the crossbow mounted upon the weapon can fell Daemons and witches alike. Precious few of these holy weapons are to be found, but they are a potent instrument against those who wield the powers of the Warp.
Used by the Space Marines since before the Horus Heresy, the Combi-Bolter is a similar weapon to the Imperium's more advanced Storm bolter. While the Storm Bolter is a single weapon, the Combi-Bolter is essentially two Bolters strapped together. They are commonly used on Chaos Space Marine Bike Squadrons. While they are no longer produced in the Imperium, in favour of the more advanced successor: the Storm Bolter, some are still held as ancient relics.
