The Tridax Launcher
The first of my BOM weapons series.
About this creation
Makuta Raximoras is one of the most gear headed makuta in the BOM. His weaopns and gadgets are invaluable to the BOM for their warriors and special agents thorughout the entire matoran universe.

This is his latest innovation, the Tridax Mortar.

After the success of Mutran's Tridax pod, there was still the fact that the only reliable way to hit anything with them was to drop them out of a cage formed out of a makuta's own chest armour. Not only was this method terribly inaccurate, but it also made the makuta's armour structurally weak, and easily broken.
So, after much testing and calibraton, Raximoras has produced the final prototype Tridax Launcher.
It can fire an adapted Tridax Pod over a maximum range of 2 miles, if tilted at a 45* angle. It is a lot more accurate, and Raxmoras is already working a #2. A cannon capable of firing multiple pods over further distances. Normal Tridax pods can be fired from the launcher, but Raximoras has also developed a heavier version that contains fireproof shadow leeches. The pod bursts on impact with the ground/a matoran, and explodes into a giant fireball, completely destroying anything near it. The leeches are flung by the explosion in all directions. Several of these firepods are being constructed for a terrorist assault on Xia.






This launcher contains the standard pod.



Ptoom!

The pod still uses the interlocking prongs used by the original Phantoka that used these weapons, but it also comes equipped with a large bayonette, for close quarters killing when yo've used up all your ammo. This thing doesn't take long to reload, but it doeas take an extra par of hands. Which is okay if you're a makuta because you could always grow an extra couple of arms should you need them...




--As soon as I saw Yuri's Sgt. Hardwire, I knew I wanted to do a weapons series, so, thanks for the idea Yuri. I know I'm not the only one who's copied you though =]

Raximoras started off as an elemental to of carbon, but after his shoulders went above his head, I decided to make him a makuta. The tridax launcher was originally supposed to be a bucky ball launcher (Buckminsterfullerene is a complex spherical molcule of carbon, And I wanted him to fire big ones.)

And here are some instructons for the Tridax Launcher. I hope they're not too tricky to follow.




Please copy this design! It's too fun not to play with!
I still haven't scrapped mine, and I've also lost all of my shadow leeches down the back of my bed because of it... heheheh

If you do make your own, please comment and say how it could be improved.

And I WILL be making the cannon, by the way, but it's going to be freestanding. Maybe it could have a gunner seat...

They should have done a better launching system for the Krana (or a launching system at all) so we could improve that. Although it would'nt stick to faces, so that's a minus..

Quoting Darkness the sHADOWLORD of cARNAGE!!!!! Oh!!! It looks like I won't be using that Tridax Launcher after all. I've finally developed my own way to fire Tridax pods. Its easier to attach to your mocs and shoots further as well. I'll try uploading it soon. I'll give u the credit for my inspiration of course.
Please Do! To be honest, I wasn't really satisfied with this design 100%. It does require a bit of a knack in the wrist action to get it to fire properly.
