From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
(Redirected from Kroot Rifle)
The Kroot rifle is the most common weapon used by the Kroot.
The Kroot rifle fires a solid slug propelled by a chemical reaction, although it has been adapted by the Tau to fire charged pulse rounds, giving it the equivalent stopping power of a boltgun. Blades are attached near the muzzle and the stock, emulating the style of traditional Kroot fighting staves. These allow the weapon to be used both at range and in close combat. It is still quite bulky however, and so is not combined with other weapons.
Other versions of the Kroot rifle include the Kroot gun and Kroot hunting rifle.
