|This article is about the Vespid weapon; for the Imperial weapon, see Neutron Laser Projector.|
The heart of the weapon is a unique crystal found on the Vespid homeworld. The crystal is energetic and unstable, but can be modulated by the vibrations of the Vespid's wings. The crystal is mounted in a case designed by the Tau that projects neutrons through the crystal. The combination is one of the most lethal weapons of its size. Its neutron blast is so powerful that can easily punch through the most armour.
The weapon also has the added safety feature of only being able to be fired by a Vespid (other creatures cannot modulate the crystal).
