About This File
The blades of this weapon are generated from charged plasma held together by magnetism. The technology is similar to that underlying the lightsaber, though this weapon is not nearly so powerful.
Originally developed for the Republic for close-quarters combat during the Mandalorian Wars, it was ultimately rejected by the Republic military, on grounds of production cost, and its ineffectiveness against most energy shields.
Since then, a small number of prototypes such as this one have quietly turned up for sale in markets across the galaxy.
This mod adds my version of the energy sword from Halo to the game. It's called the "Aratech Energy Sword", and does 1d6 Energy damage, 2 electrical damage, and has +3 attack bonus. It can be found on Taris, in the Garage Head's desk in the Black Vulkar Base.
