Melta Rifle[1]

Melta Rifles are a type of Melta Weapon used by Primaris Eradicator Squads.[1] An even larger version of the variant rifle exists, known as the Heavy Melta Rifle[3]. This is powered by a cable linking directly to the user's Power Armour.[2][3] Why an Eradicator would ever carry a Melta Rifle rather than a Multi-melta is not clear, as their Gravis armour makes any weight difference meaningless, and the exact differences in the performances of the two weapons has not been explored clearly in any citable sources.
