Thunderstroke Gauss Rifle
The Thunderstroke Gauss Rifle is a popular infantry-sized gauss rifle produced by Federated Arms. While ostensibly as large as a normal assault rifle, the Thunderstroke has a much longer barrel to contain the magnetic firing rails. It is fired from the hip with help from a shoulder strap, while ammo is held in a clip and fed into a top-loading port. Despite its size, the Thunderstroke is usable by almost anyone thanks to its simplicity of operation and light-weight construction.
