A needle-gun was a type of small hand-held weapon that fires needles as projectiles. While these weapons do not have the same base stopping power their small diameter lets them penetrate DR. What makes these weapons so lethal over traditional firearms is their follow-up internal explosion.
Tommy Two-Time tried to kill John Mullins with a needle-gun. (HHA4.4: LGTP)
*Note this additional damage modifier: 3mm gets a +1D-2 exp and 4mm +1D exp

Gauss Needler Descriptions
Gauss Minineedler, 3mm (TL10): One of the smallest machine pistols available, this is an ultra-compact holdout version of the Gauss needler.
Gauss Needler, 3mm (TL10): A short-ranged but rapidfiring machine pistol.
Gauss Pistol, 4mm (TL10): A long-barreled hypervelocity pistol with more kinetic energy than a 15mm magnum pistol, but only a fraction of the recoil.
Gauss Machine Pistol, 4mm (TL10): The Gauss machine pistol’s compactness, high rate of fire, and stopping power make it popular with military officers, special forces, and terrorists.
Gauss Personal Defense Weapon (PDW), 4mm (TL10): A compact assault weapon that accelerates bullets to a velocity between that of the Gauss pistol and Gauss rifle.
Gauss Needle Rifle, 3mm (TL10): This weapon fires 3mm darts at very high rate of fire.
Gauss Rifle, 4mm (TL10): This may be a standard military rifle at TL10. It is an automatic weapon that accelerates a 4mm bullet to almost 5,000 feet per second.
