The Rendor Plasma Gun is a popular but expensive alternative to the Bolter 4000 Laser Gun. This weapon inflicts reasonably good damage and its small size makes it possible to fit it on all vehicles. The Main drawback is that this weapon is powered by Elerium. Though not as scarce as the original Elerium collected in the first alien war, the stocks are still limited.

It is a favourite weapon to arm small vehicles such as Hoverbikes that still packs a reasonable stopping power without the hefty price tag of the Lineage Plasma Cannon.

A Rendor Plasma Gun comes as a standard issue forward weapon on all new Hawk Air Warriors.

"A popular but expensive alternative to the Bolter laser gun. The rare Elerium fuel is used to power both the plasma chamber and the electro-magnetic accelerators that propel the ultra-heated plasma to near light speeds."

Notes

There is an error in the vehicle arming screen with the reported amount of ammunition that a Rendor can hold.

The ammo capacity shows that it can store 70 rounds. This is not correct as a Rendor is able to store 140 shots. This is the same amount of Elerium that is removed from storage to fill up a Rendor, indicating that each beam from a Rendor is worth 1 unit of Elerium. The ammo count is deducted by 1 point for every two shots fired. This means the ammo display is halved.
