The Plasma Rifle is a unique energy weapon developed by the Corpus for use on standard MOAs and the Shockwave variant. It possesses low damage but a decent rate of fire with both increasing at higher levels. Fitted atop a MOA chassis, it can swivel a little more than 180 degrees in some cases without moving around. This is crucial to the MOA as it must stop moving in order to fire its plasma rifle.
Plasma Rifle is far weaker than a Crewman's Dera, with a comparative damage of approximately 1:4.
Shares similar characteristics to the Dera, the plasma rifle that Corpus Crewmen use, although the projectiles have a different sound when fired and the projectiles are slightly larger.
Shooting the rifle itself will deal 50% less damage to the MOA thus it is not recommended.
Shockwave MOAs tend to shoot their Plasma Rifles slower than the normal variants.
