A Solar Pulse is a Necron device often incorporated into a Cryptek Plasmancer’s Eldritch Lance. When activated, it unleashes a significant portion of the Eldritch Lance’s energy. This energy emission is not a coherent beam as usual, but a blinding flash of light, as bright as a solar flare, that blinds the Cryptek’s enemies and illuminates the battlefield to temporarily dispel the darkness of the night.
Necron Lords have also rarely been known to have had a Solar Pulse device built into their own preferred staff weapon. The Solar Staff is once such notable device.
