  • Upgrades:

Clip Size Increase: The larger magazine box allows for a greater number of rivets to be carried both in the weapon and on person.

Damage Output Increase: With the new pressure valves in place the pressure inside the firing mechanism has increased, increasing damage.

Heated Rivets: An internal heating mechanism superheats each bolt through electricity before firing, enabling it to have a 40% chance of igniting an enemy on fire.

Accuracy Increase: A longer, rifled barrel creates a spin and stabilization on each rivet, adding to it's accuracy.
