Warlock Titan Psychic Lance[3]

Psychic Lances are a type of Titan Close Combat Weapon with a projectile wave attack used by Eldar Knights[1a] and Titans[2].

The Eldar psychic lance uses a short burst of psychic energy directed through a crystal mounted in the machine's head. The resonance set up in the crystal acts to wipe out aggressive instincts from the creatures in its area of effect. This weapon was originally used by Exodites to pacify local wildlife, but the effect can be amplified to launch devastating assaults on the minds of sentient enemies.[1b]

An enlarged version of the Psychic Lance, also known as Psi-Lance, is used on the Warlock Titan.[2][4]

The Psi-Lance channels and amplifies the Titan crew's latent psychic ability into a devastating pulse of psychic energy that confuses the senses and overwhelms the circuitry of the enemy. Imperial Titans in particular, are vulnerable to hits from a Psi-Lance as the Mind Impulse Unit that links the crew with the Titans systems is overwhelmed by the psychic shockwave stunning the crew and blowing safety cut-outs.[4]
