EMPASS Rifle
A large, powerful rifle designed for MAS units.
About this creation
The EMPASS (Electro Magnetic Particle Accelerator to Supersonic Speeds) Rifle is a powerful long-range weapon employed when Hub.ZX (and the upcoming MAS-002, 003, and future units) when it cannot engage an enemy in close-quarters combat.

The EMPASS rifle fires particles absorbed from the atmosphere and thus does not require ammo of any kind. However, as a trade off, it cannot work properly in the vacuum of space.

The dark grey cone on each side of the rifle's back end are the particle intake valves. The bit sticking off the back of the rifle is the exhaust port that vents all the heat generated by the rifle after it fires.


The EMPASS rifle is not side-biased and thus could be equipped to the left or right arm. It can be dual-wielded with the Gravity Driver or G-Shock Hammer, but that would be senseless. The rifle is a long-range weapon and would be useless in close-quarters combat, and the other two weapons are close-quarters and would be useless at long range.

Creator's Notes
The EMPASS rifle was inspired by this artwork showcasing the new CW-AEC02X Strike Cannon for what is assumedly the Nanoha REBUILD project.

Also, I felt that the EM Double Driver was kind of poorly done, so I wanted to go back and make a better rifle-type weapon. I had to sacrifice the Driver to make the EMPASS rifle, but I'm not regretting it. The EMPASS is leagues better and probably 10x more powerful anyway.

Quoting Jason Dominguez A very nice rifle. Perhaps you should put a handle on top of the rifle so it could be held more level. Other than that, it's beautiful! Also, try not to pose them so rigidly. Bend the knees a little, give it a little tilt, make it look like its moving.
Yeah, I wanted to add a handle to the top (like the Strike Cannon has) but I couldn't come up with a handle that looked nice at the time. I do have a couple of ideas now though... Guess I should have waited to post this >_<; ! As for the knee bit, I'll try to remember to do that in later MOCs. I have hassles with keeping my mechas stable while their legs are bent so I sort of just forgo leg movement most of the time.
