The Theed Arms S-5 combines the firepower of a Heavy Blaster Pistol with the utility of an Ascension Gun. This allows the wielder to carry a single weapon that provides for defense, quick ascension capability, and the ability to capture an opponent. A successful hit using the Liquid Cable feature ensnares a target or securely attaches to a targeted surface. It can lift up to 500 kilograms and has a range of 8 squares.
If the tether is projected vertically, the S-5 Heavy Blaster Pistol can pull the wielder upward at a speed of 12 squares per round. An S-5 can also be used to create a zipline to a target surface after the Liquid Cable has been secured to a fixed object at the shooter's location. The zipline allows the wielder to slide along the line at a speed of 12 squares per round if the destination has a lower elevation. In Ascension mode, the S-5 Heavy Blaster Pistol has a maximum Range of 15 squares (12 meters).
Additionally, an S-5 Heavy Blaster Pistol carries 10 microdarts, which can be fired at a range of up to 6 squares. When fired in this manner, the S-5 Heavy Blaster Pistol deals 1d2 points of piercing damage and inflicts Paralytic Poison.
An S-5 Heavy Blaster Pistol requires a Power Pack to operate. After 20 shots, the Power Pack must be replaced. Additionally, the S-5 carries only two 20-meter lengths of Liquid Cable; after 2 uses, the Liquid Cable Dispenser must be replaced.
