The ULF Pistol is a common police weapon at TL-11.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It is a hand-sized, ultra-low frequency sound projector, which resembles a heavy pistol. The "muzzle" of the weapon terminates in a very formidable-looking, large-bore polymer barrel, which serves to direct the sound waves. It fires a directed blast of ultra-low frequency sound at the target, which spreads out from 10mm at the point of firing to 300mm at 50m. Because the beam from a ULF pistol spreads out, it must always be fired at arm's length, to avoid striking the operator. The ULF pistol carries a rechargeable power pack in the pistol grip, which gives the operator around 20 shots. The ULF pistol does no damage, but causes intense headaches, vomiting, diarrhoea, dizziness, weakness and severe gastric pains. Anyone shot with a ULF pistol will double up, fall to the ground and be unable to move for one hour. An antidote injection is available, although this antidote only lessens the effects, it does not bring complete relief. The ULF pistol is usable at an extreme range of 20m. ULF pistols are effective against most species.
