A weapon used by specialist forces that connects directly with neural nanonics for enhanced targeting capability. It is an area fire weapon, literally spraying ammunition over a certain field at the rate of 250 shots per second. Rather than regular projectiles, however, TIP’s fire thermal induction pulses that stab the target area. A TIP carabine functions in a manner similar to civilian thermal inducers, increasing molecular activity to raise heat levels. Observed effects of TIP weapons have shown that a single shot can completely dehydrate flesh and scorch bone on a human lower leg.
TIP carabines were shown to be almost uniquely effective against the possessed right from the start, when the local naval unit engages the enemy in the Amarisk jungle. However their reliance on high technology causes them to be 'glitched' out of action by the possessed's energistic effect, primarily from batteries losing their charge.
