The Shikanen MAAR is the standard infantry weapon for all Shikanen soldiers. It utilizes magnetic acceleration technology to fire solid duranium rounds at speeds in excess of 7,000 mps, at a rate of 5 rounds per second. The rifle requires large cooling vents to avoid it exploding from the intense heat produced by the internal mechanisms. The rounds have enough force to punch clean through 3 Phibots.
The weapon itself is extremely heavy, with massive recoil, requiring a Shikanen Wolfman's strength just to control the weapon. It utilizes magazines of 500 rounds, which are usually used up in 5 minutes under normal battlefield conditions. Altogether, this is one of the deadliest weapons in the War Hazard universe.
