A short laser rifle made by Origin.
|“People wonder why they call this baby, a 'Fatboy'. Hell, ain't no one sure why they do, but I'm pretty sure it's 'cause this small boy's fat in the front. Honestly? I don't give two licks of a split what it's called. All I know is that it shoots straight, hard, and fast for a price that any self-respectin' fella can afford. That may not be the reason why it's called a 'Fatboy', but it's sure as hell the reason why I ain't had problems shootin' off pirates in months.” - Edgar “Eddieboy” Harrelson, Freelance Security for Interplanetary Trade|

Cooling System: Due to its electronics and laser firing mechanisms being in such close proximity, the Fatboy uses a miniature cooling system to keep the inside of the gun at reasonable temperatures.
With the Fatboy, comes the standard FatCOM communications and Digital Display volumetric sight. This headset can work two purposes for the user of the Fatboy. The User can use it to communicate with other FatCOMs, or tune into the frequency that other squads are using to communicate.
