Made in 3ds Max 2009

Inspired by the weapon from the game "Half-Life 2"

The Overwatch Standard Issue AR2 Pulse rifle, or simply refered to as the Pulse Rifle, is the preferred weapon of the Transhuman Arm of the Combine Overwatch on Earth. The rifle descended from present day human assault rifles. But due to its different working mechanism, the design is significantly altered.

While conventional weapons rely on the kinetic energy of solid projectiles to damage targets, the Pulse Rifle employs "dark energy plasma" traveling at high-speed to burn and incinerate enemies. The plasma is stored inside compact casings called "energy plugs". Each plug as enough dark energy plasma for 30 pulses.

The firing pin, a leaf-shaped piece of metal which is positioned outside the main body of the weapon, hits the detonator of the energy plug to release a portion of the plasma inside. Under normal circumstances, this plasma would burst out in all directions. But when contained within the gun's energy barrel, the plasma is directed in a straight line towards the unfortunate target. This firing mode is fully automatic and can discharge an energy plug in seconds.

Since the ammunition is plasma, the firing trajectory is perfectly flat making the weapon almost 100% accurate when fired in short bursts. However, automatic firing for prolonged periods causes the weapon to wander around due to the powerful kickback caused by the detonation of the energy plugs.

SPECIAL ADD-ON: Dark Energy Orb Launcher
Almost every issued AR2 are equipped with an underbarrel launcher which fires dark energy plasma orbs. These orbs launch at high speeds and bounce off inorganic matter. But when organic matter is struck, the orb passes through and vaporizes it completely. The only people known to use this special add-on are the highly-trained Combine Elites and the rogue physicist Gordon Freeman.
