A Hexrifle is a Drukhari ranged weapon used primarily by the Haemonculi and their Wrack servants which are outfitted with crystal cylinders that contain a tiny amount of the genetically-engineered Glass Plague virus. The virus spreads incredibly fast on contact with flesh, transmuting the victim into a black statue made of glass-like crystal.
