A Pulse Accelerator is a Tau device that emits a powerful induction field, which can accelerate the charges of nearby Pulse Weapons, thus increasing their effective range. This allows Pathfinder Teams to engage enemies more effectively from a longer range with their Pulse Carbines. The Pulse Accelerator was developed during the Third Sphere Expansion, and is only ever found carried by Pulse Accelerator Drones that have been deployed as part of Pathfinder reconnaissance teams. Pulse Accelerators can also be found as a attachable device for individual Pulse Weapons.
