The Plasma Rifle like all energy based weapons used by the Covenant, are a directed energy weapon that uses superheated ionized gas called plasma instead of projectile ammunition. The weapon has a power output of 100-150 Kv @ 2~3 dA, and can fire 420 to 600 rounds per minute. Unlike the Type-25 DEP, the Plasma Rifle is capable of semi-automatic, and full automatic fire, this is thanks in part to its dual plasma projector design. Placed atop one another these projectors fire in a "stagger" taking the slow automatic fire of each individual projector and combining it, this design allows a faster rate of fire and more rounds per second, which adds to the lethality of the weapon. The Type 25 DER is the primary weapon of the Covenant’s officer corps, used by Elites, although Jackals have been seen using this weapon. Against UNSC infantry, the Type 25 DER's lethality is considerably greater then it's counterpart due to the fast rate of fire, injuries inflicted to the victim are severe third-degree burns, with the wound being cauterized instantly upon impact. Generally two hits from either a Plasma Pistol or Plasma Rifle will kill light, or non armored targets. Like its counterpart, over extended periods of firing, it can overheat the weapon, causing it to become unusable for a short period of time.
