Arcanotech pistols were designed with simplicity in mind. They fire a blast of pure arcane energy at whoever is on the other end of shot. These small hand guns are only accurate at a short range and do limited damage, rarely taking down anyone in just one shot. Like all pure arcane weaponry, they have a difficult time piercing magical shields, but have no problem cutting through any sort of body armor.
