Here is another on of Dr. Keliners inventions.
It's a microwave rifle that can shoot out a concentrated beam of microwaves.

Shoots our a microwave grenade. The grenade can then later be activated remotely. Once the grenade is activated it will send out a burst of microwaves in a small radius. The microwave grenade is very effective at clearing rooms. You can not have more than one grenade out at the time. Launching a microwave grenade craves a lot of energy from the microwave rifle (500 energy units). If you can't launch a grenade it's probably because the rifle doesn't have enough energy or you already have one grenade out.
The reload button will activate the microwave grenade. The microwave grenade will self destruct if you press reload again after the grenade is activated.
When the microwave beam hits an NPC the head will start to swell untill it explodes. You can hear how high pressure the head has by hearing the buzzing sound from the microwave rifle pitch up (like in the movie). When the head finally explodes it will paint the walls red (or yellow if it's an alien NPC) making the environment quite unpleasant. The grenade effects NPC's in the same
