Eldar Fusion Gun

Fusion weapons are heat-based weapons used by the Eldar, analogous to the Imperium's melta weapons.

Fusion Gun

The Fusion Gun is a melta weapon developed by the Eldar and commonly used by the Fire Dragon Aspect Warriors, as well as Storm Guardian units. This powerful weapon has a short range, but is capable of reducing an enemy battle tank to a pile of molten slag or vaporize an enemy soldier in under a second.[1][2a]

Skyraiders Kiss

The Skyraiders Kiss are a variant of the Fusion Gun, that were originally developed by the Craftworld Mymeara to be deployed in battle on the planet Bethalmae. The design was soon borrowed by other Craftworlds, after the weapons' designs proved capable at functioning at well below-subzero conditions. Extra cabling in the design shunts more coolant to the weapon, allowing it to be fired more frequently, and requiring less time to cool down between shots. The tradeoff for the extra cooling is that the coolant is required to be stored with the weapon, increasing the weight overall.[3]
