The Plasma Gun is an unlockable automatic weapon for the Medium Armor, and is a remake of the classic Plasma Gun from Starsiege: Tribes. While it is a close remake to the original, it has a very strong kick when a player is hit by it, the same amount that the Spinfusors have. The original Plasma Gun did not have a kick back.
