A Synaptic Disintegrator is an advanced sniper weapon utilised only by Necron Deathmark assassins as their favoured weapon to deliver death from afar. These cruel long-barrelled rifles fire compressed leptonic beams which destroy synaptic tissue, and are capable of sustaining a rate of fire at long range -- even when the wielder is on the move -- that few other sniper weapons can match. Those killed by the first shot from a Synaptic Disintegrator are the fortunate ones, for a hit from the weapon that is less than fatal almost invariably leaves the victim an echo of his former self; his neural tissue completely and utterly destroyed and his mind completely torn apart.
