— Official description
The Type-58 Light Anti-Armor Weapon, abbreviated T-58 LAAW, and more commonly known as the Fuel Rod Cannon or Fuel Rod Gun, is a Covenant remnants firearm. It uses fuel rods that are far safer to manufacture and field.
Changes from the Type-33 Fuel Rod GunEdit
- Magazine now moved to the back.
- Is now fed from a revolver cylinder-esque device instead of five-round chargers.
- More streamlined in shape.
- Loses the IR screen on the left side of the weapon.
- Slower reload.
- Slower rate of fire.
- The correct number of fuel rods is seen when the weapon is being reloaded; if there are four shots remaining, there are four on the fuel rod "cylinder."
- Fuel rods can no longer ricochet off of hard surfaces, and will always explode on impact.
- Fuel rods no longer arc.
