"Icarus in Black" Game note: This is a Forward-mounted weapon with unusual characteristics.

Note: The exorbitant cost of its ammunition, the Doomed Monster-Hunter, makes this weapon impractical for general usage, being limited to very specific situations. Unless, of course, you can afford SS echosmall.png 1000 x Echo per shot.
