Rogue Trader: Pride and Profit
Power Fist (Mezoa)
Special: Power Field, Unwieldy
Availability: Very Rare
Note: Add x2 wielder’s Strength Bonus to Damage
Rather than encasing an edged weapon with a power field, a power fist uses the energy to disrupt material in a more violent fashion. Worn as a huge glove, when the mechanically augmented fist strikes its target it can tear open even the heaviest armour and burst flesh into a shower of blood and tissue. Unless worn as part of power armour, they normally require heavy backpack-mounted power sources connected to the fist via heavy cables. The Mezoa-pattern specialises in an oversized mantle to increase punching power, and suitably braced the user can knock through the strongest bulkheads. Most are ancient relics, with the mantle inscribed with family heraldry or iconography indicating impressive victories.
