IDSE-SR-90 "Hunter" Sporting Rifle
To create a civilian legal sporting blaster used for hunting big game such as Rancors, Wandrellas, Wampas or anything that will be able to shrug off most normal shots from "small arms".
In a rare departure from most IDS guns, the Hunter Sporting Rifle trades the Dual XCiter technology for a single, lager XCiter and charging module. The gun is designed to deliver maximum powered shots against big game.
In a loose sense, hunting rifles and sniper rifles are about the same, both meant to be accurate and provide the stopping power necessary to drop targets with a well placed shot. Sniper rifles, generally, are more purpose built and are designed to be specialized weapons with features and tweaks to make them just that much better than their "off-the-shelf" hunting rifle counterparts.

This rifle is a single fire weapon that trades firing speed for stopping power and accuracy. Meant to be sold as a hunting rifle, this gun could also be useful for paramilitary organizations or law-enforcement that are looking for a relatively small and more mobile rifle that doesn't need to shoot invisible bolts or come with all the fancy bells and whistles military grade guns tend to come with.
- Slow refire rate (single shot rifle)
- Difficult to wield in close quarters.
- Powerful shots consume power and gas leading to somewhat limited ammo capacity per powerpack.
- Increase power further if the legislation can be changed.
