The MariTech BS-120 "Noisy Cricket" (even though the name may make you think
otherwise) is reputedly the most powerful hand-held weapon in existance. It
is slightly smaller than your average hold-out blaster but does more damage
than a heavy repeater. There is a major drawback to the Noisy Cricket,
however. It fires such a highly concentrated and powerful blast that it has
more kick than a large slugthrower.
The weapon's first field test was an assassination of a local official (no
one big, MariTech just needed a target to test it on). The assassin walked
right up behind him, slid the Noisy Cricket from his wrist holster, leveled
it at the target's back, and fired. The target was reduced to nothing more
than several chunks laying scattered over a few dozen meter diameter. The
assassin was thrown backwards roughly ten meters into a brick wall, breaking
his back upon impact. MariTech observers, who were placed in various spots
around the area, were able to recover the Noisy Cricket prototype and escape
