Galvanic Rifles are a type of weapon used by Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii. The favored weapon of Skitarii Rangers, it is modeled after the flintlock guns of Mars' past. The current model of the weapon, known as the Mk IV Arkhan, are exquisitely hand-crafted but no less deadly. These weapons fire specialized bullets over long distances that cause all potential energy of the target to burn out in a killing blast of electric force. They can also penetrate through material such as the canopy of a Thunderhawk Gunship cockpit.
