Beyond the Gates of Antares – Boromite team with X-Launcher An X-Launcher is a portable magnetic launcher that hurls explosive missiles, bombs, or special munitions packages, such as Arc, Blur, Scramble, and Scoot. They are bulky weapons, and their regular explosive ammunition resists full compression due to the charge. They are of limited value on the battlefield unless they can be emplaced or setup in a static position. However, they are excellent for lobbing shots onto fixed targets. The bombs themselves are usually guided either by internal sensors or by means of mobile targeting probes. The standard X ammunition contains high-concussion explosives. The X simply standing for explosive. The smallest X-Slinger version shoots a micro-bomb and is often built into a wrist-mounted unit, or it can be sub-mounted onto another weapon or device.
