I have seen in this site that there has been constant attempts to make a working Plasma Gun, only to be constantly met up with failure, as shown with my post regarding Warhammer's Plasma Cannons. However, one redditor came up with another suggestion, saying that it would be better if the plasma came in the form of bullets instead of coming out of the muzzle by themselves.
This is what he says:
The most common weapons are plasmas. Essentially railguns, plasmas launch small pellets of helium-3 enclosed in ferrosilica shells that create explosively-formed penetrating jets of plasma on impact. The "ammunition" for plasmas consists of a magazine with separate storage chambers for helium-3 and ferrosilica powder, which is spray formed into a thin shell ballistic template in the receiver, flash-forged by the addition of helium-3, and rail-launched. Long guns, handguns, and scatterguns, particularly those used by military forces, can generally accept the same magazines, and spent magazines can be replenished at ammo depots. While most of the helium-3 goes into the ammunition, some of it is consumed directly in the weapon to power the firing rails, optics, and internal systems. Larger ship-mounted plasmas have their own reserve tanks of helium-3 and FS powder, which can be replenished from centralized stores deep within the hull. The necessary resources for plasma rounds - helium-3, iron, and silicon, can be easily found in space. After firing, without impact in 5-60 seconds (depending on size) the pressure of the gases inside will rupture the thin shell, which will burst harmlessly. Plasma are rugged and reliable, if comparatively lacking in power. Large enough plasmas can overwhelm or even bypass defense matrices. The ballistic template, which controls the shape and thickness the shell, can be modified to produce various kinds of secondary explosive effects, from armor-piercing to incendiary to EMPs. On the civilian end, low-powered plasma weapons with limited payloads make effective less-lethal weapons for self-defense or riot control. Higher powered plasma cutters and furnaces that contain plasma in magnetic fields have a number of mining and industrial applications, but their military use is limited.
What are your thoughts? Just how do we make a plasma weapon that works as it should? And if this doesn't work, feel free to make a suggestion on another Plasma Weapon that should.
PS: It seems that "Plasmas" is the name of his weapon, not the plasma by itself.
