The HAS utilizes specially designed 10mm bullets with the intention of maximum penetration. The weapons are composed of a Sabot and a sub-caliber penetrating tip in its center, in this case 7.5mm. The round is designed to cause damage to just about anything it's shot into. Against a soft target, the bullet will tumble through soft tissue, causing significant damage. Against body armor, the bullet will separate into its two parts, with the penetrator drilling through the armor and then the target, and the sabot simply smacking the armor at high speed.
NAM Ammunition: DR 3 with Mass driver online, DR 2 without; Regular Ammunition: DR 2 with mass driver, 1 without.
Safety: A switch located slightly above and in front of the trigger guard. There are three settings: 'Hot' (Mass driver is on, weapon may fire), 'Cold' (Weapon can fire, but no mass driver, reducing recoil considerably, but also bullet velocity and damage), and 'Safe'. Fire mode selector: Right above the trigger Really cool built in thingy: It has a mass driver, which is pretty ballin'. Battery required to operate it, which is located in the front of the gun, and can power it for 3 magazines worth of shooting.
Note: All rail-mounted accessories are powered by the weapons battery
