DetailsA double-barreled Bolter with the highest rate of fire of any weapon.

The Storm Bolter is a two-barreled version of the Bolter weapon, equipped with a 100-round magazine and capable of rapid fire. As it is heavier and causes more recoil than a normal boltgun, it is rarely used by ordinary human troops and is usually either pintle-mounted on a vehicle hatch, or fired one-handed by Astartes with Terminator armor. Astartes with Power Armor are able to wield it as well, but as a two-handed wepaon.

The Chaos Space Marine version of the Storm Bolter is the Twin Bolter.

DescriptionEdit

The Storm Bolter is a double-barreled boltgun with a damage per second output just shy of that of the much bulkier Heavy Bolter. This hail of projectiles comes at the expense of stability, limiting the weapon's effectiveness at medium or long range.

Note: although the graphical display for the storm bolter will show 2 ammo consumed and 2 bullet holes per trigger pull, in fact the weapon only fires a single shot for every 2 ammo consumed.

Additionally, where most weapons have a drop off of damage which occurs ~50meters out, the Storm bolter suffers from IMMEDIATE fall of from distance, with the minimum damage being achieved after only 15 meters from the shooter. As a result, it is perhaps better to think of this weapon as having a 'bonus' to damage when within 15 meters of an opponent.
