The DX-2 disruptor pistol is a compact and exceedingly deadly hand weapon which was originally developed and manufactured by the Tenloss Syndicate for black market sales during the later years of the Old Republic. Classified as a disruptor, and thus highly illegal even in the present day, the DX-2 is currently manufactured by a number of outlaw tech weaponsmithing operations, and remains popular with assassins and other violent criminals.
The DX-2 is a small device, not much more bulky than a standard medium blaster pistol, but incorporating an over-powered firing coil and other components which allow the pistol to fire disruptor bolts rather than standard blaster bolts. A power-hungry design, the DX-2 will chew through a standard power pack after 10 shots. Similarly, it is very short-ranged, effective only out to about 10 meters, limiting it to close-range applications.
The DX-2 inflicts disintegration damage; bolts from the weapon ignore body armor and destroy organic material down to the molecular level, reducing any organic being they hit to a pile of genetically unidentifiable ash, and leaving behind clothes, armor, weapons and other items. The bolts can "reduce" a being up to the size of an adult human; larger beings may have chunks taken out of them, which is equally deadly. Any being hit by a disruptor bolt and not killed outright will eventually die, slowly crumbling to dust as their molecules are unraveled by residual radiation.
Disruptors such as the DX-2 are highly illegal on all civilized worlds, with extreme penalties for any being caught wielding one. That said, the spread of the Anabolic Myohypertrophic Stimulator virus has contributed to the weapon's popularity; it is undeniably an effective counter against the "walking dead", as it entirely destroys the body rather than merely damaging it.
Illegal. DX-2s, like all disruptor weapons, are banned on all civilized worlds, and frowned upon even on uncivilized ones.
