Kinetic Battlestaff
You again? Shit. What is it with you and flashy? This two-handed whacking-stick is great at dishing out the pain, but if you're looking for something with more killing power, or an actual deathstick - you'll want something more conventional (preferably with bullets). As to this, the Kinetic Battlestaff is great at hitting things in crowded areas and particularly good at knocking people off their feet. The areas it excels in, though, are pleasing your primitive monkey-brain and playing extreme baseball.

Additional Details

  • Works best in crowded areas
  • Epic cracking sound effects from the powerful gravitational distortions it produces
  • Holding in the middle provides more leverage for more accurate (no-roll) attacks, but with less range
  • Holding at an end lets you clear out larger areas for little more damage than knocking someone off their feet
    • The number of "attacks" this counts as are equal to the number of people you attempt to hit, divided by two, rounded down. Still only counts as one action in gametime.
  • Thrusting an end at someone sends them flying, but can be difficult to set up
  • Typically non-lethal unless you catch someone in the face
  • With half-decent psionic ability, can be coupled with your intuition to position itself in the path of projectile weaponry (acts as half cover in addition to your dodge rolls)
  • With half-decent psionic ability, can be coupled with your intuition to provide the ultimate parry-stick (acts as full cover in addition to your dodge rolls)
  • To block in either of the above manners, you must not be already attacking with it
  • Blocking ship-based, explosive, or heavy weapon fire is unadvised
