Congratulations to Damixon, SFC3 and PiralDorrm, STOWiki's newest administrators.

We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The Synchronic Proton Distortion Prototype Assault Rifle is a unique weapon developed by Lieutenant Kalapo/B'Eler specifically for combating Devidians.

A prototype weapon originally developed at Memory Alpha to damage cloaked opponents, the Synchronic Proton Distortion Beam failed Starfleet field testing at Deep Space K-7 and the project was abandoned. It was later successfully tested as a hand weapon against non-cloaked opponents by crew from the U.S.S. DeWitt, but never entered production as a fleet weapon. Only a few prototypes of this weapon still exist, and this one has been modified with a secondary effect that is extremely effective against foes who are at a subspace variance from our reality.

The U.S.S. DeWitt was destroyed by the Klingons in “Second Star to the Right, Straight on 'til Morning”, which presumably explains how the KDF obtained the prototype.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

The Synchronic Proton Distortion Prototype Assault Rifle is a mission reward from the Devidian Front mission “Spin the Wheel”.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Although this weapon is good against single enemies, this weapon is built to be most effective when used against groups of 3-4. The tighter the group, the better. The best strategy is for the player to target someone in the rear of the group. Using this method, the chain fire will actually chain forward to everyone standing in front of the target, dealing heavy flanking damage!
  • This weapon appears to be a reference to Ghostbusters. It is similar in appearance to the proton weapons from the film, the secondary fire is a proton beam with a similar "stream" effect, and it is provided specifically for use against the ghost-like Devidians.
  • Although this weapon may never have been designed for such a use, is amazingly well suited for fighting Borg. Just as with fighting Devidians, the secondary Fire can be used to devastating effect if used against a group of 3-4 Drones. Using this method, a player can actually kill numerous drones before ever needing to remodulate.
  • When introduced, this was the only ground weapon with two different types of energy damage: Proton and Antiproton. Since the release of Season Seven: New Romulus there are now multiple ground weapons with multiple energy damage types. As of Season Nine, this remains the only Proton/Antiproton weapon; however.
  • Unlike most other ground weapons, this weapon is not visible on the players' back when not in use. Also, despite being called a "rifle," the player wields it like an Assault Minigun.
  • With the secondary fire being able to chain, and primary fire acting very much like a shotgun bolt, this weapon is a welcome substitute for a Pulsewave Assault, and also has a slightly longer range. In addition, the damage dealt seems to increase with the player's level.
