The plasma rifle fires superheated plasma. Each brute plasma rifle has 100% charges, and it's charge decreases by 1/4% of it's original charge by each shot fired. Using a full auto action uses 3% of the original charge. A plasma rifle overheats after using 6% of its charge without a gap of at least one round between shots. A plasma rifle cannot be reloaded or recharged.
Plasma Weapons deal double damage to energy shielding, but are inherently weak versus unshielded targets. (Ex: Target has 20 points of shield, a shot is fired from a Plasma Pistol dealing 8 points of damage, shield takes 16 points. 4 shield remaining. Another shot is fired dealing 8 points against the 4 remaining, 2 points of damage are expended to deal 4 to the shield. Target takes 6 damage.)
