A Flechette Blaster is a lightweight but lethal weapon; a favoured tool of Sicarian Infiltrators, perhaps one of the most sinister of the Adeptus Mechanicus's Skitarii warrior clades. This lethal short range weapon fires hundreds of tiny darts, each of which bears a dormant cerebral cell awakened in the gun's chamber. When one dart hits home, it emits a bioelectric pulse that attracts others, resulting in a series of impacts that burrow through flesh and bone.
