The overpowered gun needs a new description, here's my take:
The Red Death had long devastated the crucible. No pulse rifle had ever been so fatal, or so hideous. Blood was its Avatar and its seal --the redness and the horror of blood. There were sharp pains, and sudden dizziness, and then profuse bleeding in the skull.
