The KARMA-1 is a Legendary sniper rifle only available through Printing. It features a charge-up before shooting, and is capable of killing any prospector in one hit on a head shot.


The KARMA-1 is not able to have any Attachments installed.


While heavy and requiring a charge-up to fire, a direct hit from the KARMA-1 will cripple if not outright kill any target, and the raw kinetic power will damage anything near the impact area.


The Korolev Advanced Recursive Magnetic Artillery, first prototype, is a miniaturization of the sort of weaponry more commonly found on warships, offered exclusively to the Prospectors for early testing.
