Power Fist

Rather than encasing an edged weapon with a power field, the energy field here is instead used to disrupt material in a more violent fashion. Worn as a hugely oversized glove, when the mechanically augmented fist strikes or clenches its target it can tear open the heaviest armour. Unprotected enemies simply erupt in a shower of ruined flesh, as if a grenade had exploded inside them. Power fists are more common as part of power armour suits where the massive power requirements can be met by integral energy packs, but some elite Imperial forces and high-ranking officers also use them with the aid of backpack power sources.
