Slinker carbines are common weapons in locations with adverse wind or vision condition such as windy, hazy, or dusty worlds. The jet-propelled smart ammunition seekout the target tagged with the rangefinder and take a course to get there without running into other targets. Slinker weapons function and appear like most slugthrowers but are limited in the amount of ammunition that they can carry as well as some-what reduced damage. Slinker ammo is usually only available on worlds that slinker weapons are common.
