Melta Weapons

Melta weapons emit devastatingly intense but short-ranged blasts of heat that can melt through almost any material. Also known as cookers or melters, most types of melta induce highly pressurised gases from an ammunition canister into an unstable sub-molecular state and direct the resulting energies down the barrel. Melta usage is accompanied by a distinctive hissing sound as the beam boils away the water in the air, then a roaring blast as it reduces the target to charred scraps or molten slag. Meltas are the premier anti-armour weapons, and few vehicles can withstand their power. To use the various classes of melta weapons, a character must have the Weapon Training (Melta) Talent.
