Quirky Guns and Weird Ammo

Guns are different depending who manufactured them, and who had them last. This lets you see what's different, and gives advantages/disadvantages for that.

1      Wear and Tear
Determine number of previous owners (1d8) if second-hand. Reduce price for each successive owner, with first owner causing the most significant reduction. For each owner, 30% chance of some user-added modification – use general quirk table, ignoring negative quirks. Add the listed price to the asking price.
Manufacturer
Determine manufacturer and derive number of design quirks and price modification.
Budget Weapons will look cheap and mass-produced. Stamped-metal parts are common. Think rural-area AK-47s and the Sten.
Conventional Weapons are just that. They look how you’d expect. Think M16 or H&K MP5.
Unconventional Weapons push the boundaries of normal design, such as the Mateba or the FN P90.
Exotic Weapons are entirely separated from the design of normal weapons, such as the H&K G11 or Korobov TKB-022.

1-2
Budget – 1d4 quirks, at least 1 must be mixed or negative.
Unit at 50-75% cost.
3-4

Quirks (assumes projectile weapons)
Class 0 – Negative Quirk
Class 1 – Mixed Quirk
Class 2 – Positive Quirk
Price reflects the price as an after-market modification, or to correct the issue for negative traits. 1/3 of these prices is parts, the rest is labour.

Specialist Ammunition

(max. target ac is 9)
Hollow-point Rounds – 15Cr per 20 rounds. These rounds expand upon contact, causing additional damage. -1 to hit from reduced penetration, +1 damage from expansion. Reduces risk of hull penetration.

Armour Piercing Rounds (Conventional) – 20Cr per 20 rounds. These rounds are designed to defeat more advanced armour types, and allow tech 3 weapons to defeat power-armour. +2 to target AC from armour-piercing, -2 damage from over-penetration and lack of deformation.

Explosive Tipped Rounds – 35Cr per 20 rounds. After penetrating, these rounds detonate to cause considerably increased damage. +1d4 damage from explosives. Loud. Messy.

Incendiary Rounds – 20Cr per 20 rounds. These rounds contain compounds which ignite either upon penetration or in the air. 25% chance of igniting target.

Experimental Ammunition

Armour Piercing Rounds (Depleted Uranium) – 150Cr per 20 rounds. Utilizing a depleted uranium penetrator, these rounds are very effective at pushing through armour. The over-penetration is compensated for by the pyrophoric (air-combusting) properties of depleted uranium, meaning these rounds inflict horrific damage on a target. In addition to this, they also leave toxic soluble uranium-salts within the wound, leading to massive health issues. +3 to target AC due to incredible AP potential, +1 damage from chemical reactions and deposited salts.

Guided Gyrojet Rounds – 200Cr per 20 rounds. These are more like miniature rockets than conventional ammunition. The firing mechanism of the gun provides the initial speed, and the rocket then locks onto a target provided by the user. The round then guides itself towards the target. This requires the use of a weapon with Aim-assist and a computerised suit. (Vacc-suit or powered armour) +3 to hit.
