Shock Weapons are a type of melee electric weapon.


Shock weapons are equipped with a power generator that electrifies the weapon. Though to the untrained eye the power pack and wiring of a shock weapon may resemble that of a power weapon, it is a very different—and much more common—technology. Unlike the devastating ability of power weapons to sunder armor and flesh, a shock weapon delivers a high-voltage current, which, while usually not deadly in and of itself (except in particularly powerful cases), is able to subdue a target. The brutality of Imperial justice, however, means that the heavy pummeling often delivered with shock weapons is enough to prove fatal regardless.[1]
