The Devastator is a succinct statement of the Soze Arms design philosophy -- overkill
is the way to go. The pistol fires a wide-pattern flechette round, shredding anything
in the general vicinity. It inflicts double the listed damage at close range (8 meters or
less), but only half damage for shots at long range (16 to 40 meters). The flechette
pistol doesn't have the full auto capability pf the autoflechette shotgun.
This is by far my favorite pistol for several reasons. First, the -1
accuracy bonus helps the non-combat spec character gain an
advantage in the field. You can also fire it three out of the four
phases which is usually more than the average person has actions
in a round. But the absolute greatest thing about this pistol is that
it does double damage in short range which means it can do
8 wounds on an ordinary, 12 WOUNDS on an good success which is
unheard of for a pistol (most rifles can not do that much damage),
and 8 mortal (OUCH!). And to counter the long range half damage
thing, carry a rifle and quit crying. Just remember 12 WOUNDS
on a GOOD success, unbelievable. I give this weapon a 8 on my
scale of cool weapons.
