One of the first weapons designed by Aster Blake as part of her internship in YE 39 with Section 6 Weapons Development Department (S6-WDD) under the guidance of Jack Pine and Rose Ironhart-Pine to be a domestically produced modular weapon system, conceptually inspired by Origin Industries' Showstopper. The “Maverick” saw early production in YE 40 for further field testing by Section 6's Saber Special Forces.
Aster Blake liked the idea of the Showstopper but thought that a domestically produced weapon of that particular caliber would be useful in multiple configurations: pistol; carbine and sniper rifle. Aster had also been tasked with making a plasma variant of the weapon. Not having the materials readily available nor the experience necessary to make Plasma rounds, she looked through various online message boards and advertisements until she found the 8x35mm SLAG round.
The young designer was thrilled when the companies she contacted were receptive to working with her and providing her the requested components she needed to make the MAVERICK a multi-function, “frankengun”.
The MAVERICK has 3 general configurations available that retain the same rectangular magazine well forward of a trigger that functions as a trigger guard and a straight pistol grip. The upper receiver can be changed out and further accessorized for the user to have more versatility in their gun configuration and the ammunition that it can be used. The iron sights rest half-way between the grip and the magazine well at the top rear of the weapon that can also function as a mounting point for a more advanced sight. The default color of the MAVERICK is silver. The MAVERICK is also available in tactical blue; camouflage pattern (various) and light pink.

The Origin 12.7x50mm Electromagnetic made by Origin Industries was designed to leave large, gaping wounds in targets while ignoring most things in the way such as body armor plates or the chitinous shells on Mishhuvurthyar.
11.5×31.2mm SLAG is simply a 8x35mm round made into 11.5 x 31.2mm size at the request of Belinda Blake for Aster Blake.
Inserting the magazine is a straightforward procedure where it is simply inserted up into the magazine well until secure, and does not require any rocking to lock it into place. A round may be chambered by pulling back the charging handle and letting go, allowing the mechanisms to drive the bolt forward. Despite this, the firearm may be fired without doing so; by ensuring the safety is off and pulling the trigger, the weapon will automatically fire normally, with the first shot being 'blank'. Reloading is a simple procedure consisting of pushing the magazine release button and inserting a new, loaded and charged magazine into the magazine well before repeating the above procedure.
The base price of the S6-MWS1-MAVERICK is:
The ammunition prices vary based on the type. The 12.7mm EM can be bought directly from Origin Industries but can also be purchased from Section 6. The 11.5×31.2mm SLAG has to be purchased directly from Section 6 since it was a special order for the MAVERICK.
