Nova Laser Pistol

(Redirected from Laser Pistol (Sunbeam Nova))
This article is about the laser pistol. For other uses, see Nova (disambiguation).


The Nova Laser Pistol is an "energy-hog" of a laser pistol produced by the Sunbeam Corporation. Designed specifically to combat Clan Elementals, it fires the widest laser beam of any pistol on the market, allowing the Nova to damage a much greater surface area of the target. While able to kill or incapacitate a man in a single shot, the diffused beam has a much shorter range and poorer armor penetration. It also makes the Nova incredibly energy inefficient and, able to only connect to one power pack at a time, has led some to call it a "two-shot wonder." Still, the weapon has become quite popular in the Chaos March following its introduction.[1][2]
