A Particle Beamer is a Necron weapon that emits a stream of miniscule anti-matter particles which detonate on contact with normal matter. Necron Particle Weapons are incredibly reliable, needing only enough energy to maintain the containment field that prevents the anti-matter from detonating within the weapon’s mechanisms.
Particle Beamers are heavy, rifle-sized Particle Weapons, and can cause powerful blasts at range to decimate enemy infantry. Tomb Blades can mount a Particle Beamer on their chassis instead of their usual twin-linked Tesla Carbines, whilst Canoptek Spyders who specialise in sentinel duties commonly mount twin-linked Particle Beamers on their backs. Tesseract Arks are also able to mount two Particle Beamers as secondary weapon systems.
