The so-called pulse alternation law previously prevented one type of energy weapon from being combined with another. After Nikki had stolen some modern plans from the Gumai, Holon succeeded in deciphering and circumventing the law. With this knowledge, he built the first sniper assault rifle in history, the Storm.
Visually, it looks like a slightly larger assault rifle with a wider body, extendable shoulder rest and tactical multi scope visor. A switch, however, expands the rifle by extending the barrel and support as well as the visor. The type of projectile changes to long-range projectiles.
The Commander received this weapon for testing and used it for the first time in the Battle of Athens, where it was shot out of his hand and destroyed.
