|Damage Per Hit||
|“||The Ion Ripper fires blasts of glowing energy boomerangs capable of ricocheting off walls. The Ion Ripper is the perfect weapon for launching attacks around corners and areas out of your line of sight.||”|
—The Reckoning Manual
The Ion Ripper fires energy "boomerangs" that ricochet off of inanimate objects, allowing out-of-sight enemies to be killed by rebounding shots. Another advantage is its efficient ammunition consumption (2 rounds per shot).
Apart from its ricochet properties, the Ion Ripper is very good for direct attacks against powerful enemies, such as the Iron Maiden (Beta Class), Gladiator (Beta Class), Tank, Tank Commander, and the Super Tank (Beta Class).
