This week, here's a new Varangian Arms design somewhere in the steampunk/dieselpunk vein. The name comes from the Latin phrase, "Ultima ratio regum," or Final Argument of Kings, as engraved on French artillery. The other inspiration comes from a certain weapon from Snow Crash, Reason.
-The idea is a hand cranked Gatling gun with a Predator style grip and ammo belt.
-Caliber should be something cheap and plentiful, like .22 LR.
-Backpack for ammo is optional.
