Ranged Close Combat

Ion Weapons are advanced Tau weapons that fire high-energy streams of ions at a target. These streams can vaporize flesh and metal with equal ease. Ion weapons can be overcharged to generate a devastating attack, but doing so risks overheating its primary power cell.[1]

Ion Weapons are proscribed by the Adeptus Mechanicus, but the Squats of the Leagues of Votann were known to share their secrets of the technology with the Tau.[2]
