Heavy Bolter
The Heavy Bolter is an enormous version of the Bolter, of much larger size and weight, the Heavy Bolter fires powerful armor-piercing bolts at the enemy with a staggering rate of fire. The Heavy bolter is generally used in the Imperial Guard and Adeptus Astartes for anti-infantry or fire support roles, also known as the "Back Breaker" or the "Bruiser" by the crew who have to carry it because of its great weight- but also because of the heavy punishment it can deal out to the enemy. It fires a round considerably larger than that of the standard Bolter shell, with more propellant and longer range and higher stopping power, making it capable of easily destroying light vehicles. However, due to its high rate of fire, jamming is often a problem.
