Main article: Type-25 Brute plasma rifle

The Sorrow of Teash is built upon the chassis of the standard Kewu R'shi'k-pattern plasma rifle, though features a white-and-yellow striped paint scheme. Mechanically, the weapon has been upgraded with better accuracy and upgraded heat dissipation.[1]

Development history[edit]

Following the fall of the Sacred Promissory, Jiralhanae warlords in command of post-war fleets and colonies have moved to procuring the services of expert weapon smiths across known space.[1][2] The Sorrow of Teash is named after Teash, one of the three natural satellites formerly orbiting Doisac.[4]
