The Type-7 Particle Weapon is a particle beam-based sniper weapon found in F.E.A.R. First Encounter Assault Recon, F.E.A.R. Extraction Point and F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate. When the beam hits a target, it will strip the target's flesh.
The Type-7's large zoom and very high power makes it the ultimate long range weapon. One shot will kill any non REV6 Powered Armor or Replica Elite Soldier in one hit, making it very useful for destroying groups of enemies from a distance. Even with strong enemies it is very effective, making it a handy weapon to have at all times. While the Type-7 has a small magazine size, its power means the player will be able to wipe out a group before they have to reload.
Ammo for this weapon is uncommon, so it should not be used as a primary weapon. However, ammunition for this weapon becomes somewhat more common the closer the player gets to the Vault.
When held, the Type 7 slows down the player's movement by a noticeable amount, so the player should be aware of its speed penalties when used.
It is advised to not fire multiple shots during Slow-Mo, as the weapon's short charge-up time in between shots will be considerably longer while in Slow-Mo.
F.E.A.R. First Encounter Assault ReconEdit
Despite many new weapons added in the expansions F.E.A.R. Extraction Point and F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate, the Type-7 Particle Weapon still remains one of the most powerful.
