The needle gun is a mechanoid-only weapon equipped on pikemen which deals a moderate amount of damage per shot; longer time between shots; very long range and high overall accuracy.

The needle gun essentially takes the low fire rate of the charge lance with the lower single shot damage of the heavy charge blaster. It is relatively harmless, only able to destroy some minor body parts when without armor.

This weapon is unobtainable in normal play, though it can be spawned in by the Debug actions menu. It is provided here for comparisons sake. Like all unobtainable weapons, after being equipped and dropped, it disappears.
