A Helfrost Pistol of the Space Wolves Chapter

Helfrost Weapons are a type of specialised weapon class that is deployed solely by the Space Wolves Space Marine Chapter. These weapons are powered by rare crystals found only in the most remote corners of the Fenrisian wilds. Helfrost Weapons fire a beam of sub-zero energy that can instantly encase enemies in blocks of ice close to absolute zero, colder than the vacuum of space.

Unless the foe can move away from the beam or break free quickly if hit by it, they might remain trapped within their glacial tomb forever, or even shattered into a thousand frozen pieces. The beam of energy fired by these weapons can either be a focused beam for use against large single targets, or a dispersed beam effective against groups of enemies.
