A Master Engineer armed with a Hochland long rifle.

The Hochland long rifle, also known as Leon Todmeister's Fantabulously Far-reaching Harquebus of Unforeseeable and Unperceived Bereavement is an experimental weapon designed by the Engineer Leon Todmeister[1]

The Hochland long rifle was developed from the long rifles used by the hunters of Hochland. These weapons use barrels which have been rifled or grooved, which makes the lead shot spin in flight, in turn making the weapons highly accurate and giving them a range unsurpassed by most other handguns (with an effective range that is half-again longer than the standard handgun). On the battlefield it is often used by marksmen as a sniper rifle, where it is particularly effective at neutralising specific targets from afar.
