Machine Gun

Item Description
T0 Colombo Trainer Classic dogfight machine gun.
T1 Colombo Repeater Bulldog general nicknamed Colombo became famous in the Aughts for sending his troops into close combat equipped only with a heavy repeating gun.
T2 Colombo Repeater Mk II In the battle of Elks Rot, rapid shock troops deployed with a new model of machine gun failed to reach the artillery line in time.
T3 Colombo Repeater Mk III Faced with numerous combat failures, the ill-loved machine gun designs were mothballed. One, involving a lighter frame mountable on hover vehicles, was stolen by valiant titmouse spies.
T4 Repeater 16 During the Winter Siege, starving avian coggers adapted the gun to quads using an innovative aimable turret assemblage.
T5 Repeater Cannon Compressed mass storage systems enabled even larger calliber [sic] rounds. First saw deployment in the spring campaign against the very dog troops who began carrying machine guns as standard infantry equipment in years past.
T6 Colombo’s Bane One dreary summer morning, when the haze had not yet burned off above the killing fields, a stealthed quad wing snuck up to General Fred 'Columbo' [sic] Oxglen Sr's command post. And ended his storied career.
T7 Large-bore Machine Gun Imperial advances in reactive armor plating resulted in a minor arms race as the Rebels frantically increased punch-through power. Bores larger than this design exhibit ammo instability and explosive failures.
T8 Steam Machine Gun An ultimately ill-fated romance between a Mallardian quad pilot and a high-ranked raptor yielded this peculiar birthday gift. A machine gun that fires ruby-tipped sniper bullets. Each stamped with a small heart.
T9 Gun of the Danes Big, slow, effective. Like the kennel bred shock troops that once used it.
T10 Puckle’s Courage 'All dogs go to heaven.' -Captain Cornish Puckle, upon being surrounded by a full canine infantry division.
ELEM Frost Dagger A mysterious weapon with an owl insignia that fires quick bursts of knife-like shards.
ELEM Gattling Cobra The ammunition contained embeded ampules of a venom that eats through metal.
ELEM Life Ender This was once used to save innocents from raging fires. How times have changed.
ELEM Spirit Flame Legends speak of three gathering flames that once granted travellers with the power of an axe.
ELEM Wattson’s Fury Alberd Wattson built this gun out of spite when a fellow scientist mocked him. Their duel ended in a flash.
UT Apache The heavy gauge dual ammo encasements led to cost overruns. Only a sample of this weapon remain. (Tap to fire missiles, hold to spray bullets.)
UT Piercing Frost A miniaturized blizzard generator. Useful against groups.
UT The Spitting Cat Dog troopers are punished severely if they call this gun by its informal name.
UT Undertaker Used to punish those who claim dominion while only knowing the world's surface.
UT Unfriendly Duo Two guns named after a famous pair of criminals. When one of them died, the other began fighting using both of their guns.
