The Mk1 Static Gun is a fixed emplacement used by the United Citizens Federation.
This heavy weapon was developed by the Morita Company with the intention of giving lightly armed outposts the firepower to withstand all but the most heavy Arachnid assaults. These highly flexible weapon systems can be used against a wide range of Bugs and is equally capable of taking on fast moving flying enemies. It is considered perhaps the best tool to use by the Mobile Infantry against the Hopper Bugs and keeping them at bay. The Mk1 merges range with hitting power and a high rate of firepower. However, this comes at the cost of potential overheating and an absolute reliance on a functioning power supply to keep it operational.
Troopers deployed at static guns can also make use of its enhanced vision mode which serves as a secondary system within the weapon.
