Retractable Flail
Nothing quite says "I'm gonna fuck you up" like a giant spiked depleted uranium ball at the end of a carbon-steel chain. The favorite weapon of dark knights since the medieval ages, it is quite capable of ruining anything mechanical and causing untold amounts of damage to internal systems - but don't expect it to break anything apart. When it's not in use, you can reel up the chain and keep it nice and safe by your robotic arm. Be aware that it's exceedingly difficult to maneuver while you're swinging the thing, though - and it's definitely unwise to swing more than one at a time, unless you like untying knots.
  • Creds: 3000
  • Ammo: None
  • Requirements: +1 Energy
    Goes on one of your robotic mounts
  • Rolls: Attacker's Speed and Robotics vs Defender's Durability and Maneuverability

Additional Details

  • Will destroy pretty much anything mechanical, no questions asked
  • Turns humans into pancakes, regardless of how much armor they're wearing
  • Severely damages internal systems just from the force of the blow
  • Requires a good deal of speed to get it going; engines are usually the thing to use here
  • Can damage light ship armor if you're going fast enough and aim properly
  • Makes you much less maneuverable while it's out on its chain - and much easier to hit (-1 Maneuverability while the chain is out)
