Characteristics[edit | edit source]
An exceptionally sturdy rifle popular on backwater planets and the extreme edges of the galaxy, the Outland was reliable and easy to disassemble for storage and cleaning. Like many slugthrowers the Outland propelled a metal slug at supersonic speeds through chemical explosion, and was noted for having an exceptionally long range of a kilometer and a half. These slugs were heavier than most rifles, owing to their power and range, and as a result had to be manually advanced into the chamber through bolt-action, making rapid fire difficult. Its range, combined with a retractable stock, bipod, and optional NightMight 4NS scope made it ideally suited for long range hunting and killing.
Because of its sturdy construction, many used the rifle as a melee weapon - pairing the rifle with a bayonet, using the rifle as a spear when hunting. Despite primarily being a sniping weapon, at least some of these rifles were modified for quick bursts of close-range fire.
