|“||The Chosen Assassin's failsafe weapon, in close quarters it is no less dangerous than her sword.||”|
The Arashi comes equipped with four superior weapon upgrades, one more than can be on XCOM's weapons. It also has a much lower range penalty than other shotguns, making it more accurate outside of close range.
|“||*The Arashi is an extremely versatile and powerful weapon.
*Shotgun-style weapons are very effective at close range, but their accuracy drops off quickly at longer ranges.
- "Arashi" is Japanese for "storm".
