The product of the analysis of and experimentation on otherworldly relics conducted by a research facility. Having been damaged and subsequently repaired, it includes many original pieces from the ruins which boost its accuracy and power. However, since currently the technology required to develop a weapon of this class doesn't currently exist, its production is seen as a fluke. It is a simple, no-frills piece.
