Melta Guns are the basic version of Melta weapons, used by forces of Imperial origin, including the Imperial Guard, Space Marines, Ordo Hereticus and Adepta Sororitas. Given their fairly quiet and very effective nature, infiltrating parties make use of meltaguns to destroy enemy vehicles before they get a chance to fight on the battlefield.[Needs Citation] They are also given names such as 'fusion guns', 'melters',[17] and 'cookers'.[Needs Citation]


Meltaguns are effective anti-armour weapons, used by various Imperial forces for close range assault and anti-tank roles. They are most effective at close-range, capable of reducing nearly any material to molten slag through super-heated blasts.[12]
