A rifle used for fighting in the trenches.
This rifle has a wooden stock and a metal firing mechanism. The weapon can attack twice, dealing 3d4 piercing damage per hit.
When the war first came around, trenches were a big deal on the front. It was where the lines were drawn, and here most combat was settled in close quarters. Neither side of the war had a rifle meant for trench warfare until a United Empire Gunsmith made the Stensburg.
The Stensburg is a rifle with a semi-auto mechanism and a hair trigger, meant that anybody trained in the weapon could clear trenches fast. During the early stages of the war, most infantry were given this rifle only to be lost in storms of hail and snow. Now, it is only used by the trench-clearing unit called the “Strikers”.
