The Chain Rifle uses a length of chain as ammunition, firing it as a cone of red-hot shrapnel via an electric mechanism. It was developed to arm untrained militias in Third World campaigns. A Chain Rifle's wide firing arc makes it devastating at short ranges, where missing is almost impossible. The low production cost and deadly effectiveness of this weapon made it a resounding success in conflicts all over the Human Sphere.
