Zalian Defense Tool

Item

Description It takes a minute to figure out what this contraptions is supposed to do, but you do find some well-hidden ports that look like they'd take standard ammo. Beyond that, there are all sorts of catches and triggers, revealing compartments and blades. Not all of them have any obvious purpose.

One catch does reveal a plaque saying "Stellar Defense Team Omega - Zalian Defense Tool," which rings a bell. You think some of the bums in Southside still talk about it, because it was one of the last TV shows they watched before they collectively ended up homeless.

At least all its strange features make sense if it's a replica weapon… although it does leave the question of "who would make a replica that fires real bullets?" Ah, yeah, there's the Zaibatsu logo right there… really should have guessed that.
Type Weapon
Effects +3 Stealth Power
A third of your Stealth Power applies to Ranged attacks
