The Pulse Submunitions Rifle is a type of heavy Pulse Weapon utilized by Tau Empire Hazard Close Support Armour.[1]

Essentially the tau equivalent of a heavy grenade launcher, the rifle fires different types of ammunition for use against a variety of enemies (although most of these are still prototypes and thus exclusive to commanders such as shas'o R'Alai). These include: the standard pulse submunitions round and the experimental ionic-cluster-beam shell for use against packs of lightly armoured infantry or targets in cover; the experimental hyper-density sabot for use against heavy infantry and light vehicles; and the experimental EMP shell for use against armoured vehicles.[2]
