A type of Energy Weapon. Also called Particle Beam Weapons
Particle Weapons are similar to laser weapons, but instead of firing Tachyon Particles, they fire Baryonic Particles (Particles with mass). While technically this makes Plasma Weapons, Particle Weapons, their means of operation are ultimately different despite similarities.
They generally work in a manner similar to a particle accelerator, only a group of particles is fired at once, instead of one. These particles maybe as dust particles, or as small as atoms, or elementary particles. They can be devastatingly powerful, but energy intensive.
