X-Squared: Season 2
The flechette ‘weapon’ was recovered while operating in California on Case 01 This pistol sized weapon compressed air to propel small flechettes. Though extremely dangerous against unarmored targets, even light cover and body armor is difficult for this weapon to penetrate. Due to it’s low effectiveness against hardened targets, it has been suggested that this is a self-defense weapon, or even that it’s intended purpose is as a tool.
Research into the artifact has revealed that it has a number of advanced biological-technological components. The flechettes fired are primarily made of calcium, and similar to bone. The item, will grow new flechettes, replenishing it’s supply of ammunition. The gun also naturally gathers and compresses gasses from the atmosphere, in a manner similar to respiration. The biological components are encased within an inorganic frame, and it is as of yet unclear how the components ar kept alive.
