A pulse rifle is a Peacekeeper weapon. It fires bolts of yellow or red energy significantly bigger, more charged, and overall more powerful than pulse pistol. Pulse rifles use Chakan oil cartridges for ammunition; there are no shells. The rifle can be set to overload, causing a large explosion relative to the amount of ammunition remaining. There is a mount on the top, where a scope can be attached. A laser sight can also be attached.
Several models are known to be in use, including a smaller, standard version, and a larger, more powerful version that is braced upon and fired from the hip.
