"Cold to the touch, this sleek rifle bears a long, slender chrome barrel. Tendrils of icy vapor coil out of the muzzle."
Skill: Bows and Rifle
A freeze ray does little damage but, as the name suggests, freezes most enemies solid on a hit. It ignores armor, but never benefits from penetration, so the 1d4 damage never increases. Also note the extremely high power consumption - it will burn out lesser cells in just a few shots.
Note that because of the way temperatures spread, anyone near the target may end up frozen as well, especially once the ray has been fired multiple times or if standing next to multiple frozen enemies.
