The Ripper is designed to bypass personal energy shields by dealing physical damage. The Ripper is a Pistol that fires a variety of oddly shaped pieces of shrapnel, similar to the Flechette weapons that will be used during the Galactic Civil War. A Ripper's irregularly shaped ammunition penetrates deep into the target's body, damaging it severely. If a Ripper moves a target at least 1 step down the Condition Track by dealing damage exceeding the target's Damage Threshold, shrapnel embedded in the target's body immediately deals an additional 1d4 Piercing damage.
A Ripper requires an ammunition clip (20 credits, 0.1 kg). After 10 shots, the clip must be replaced.
