Despite numerous warnings from science fiction authors and Hollywood movies regarding the weaponification of robots Robert has outfitted his Robosapien with a flame thrower and a coil gun –

The coilgun is controlled using the V2’s remote and is able to fire 8 shots with it’s electronic reload. The charging time varies but is around the 5-10sec mark between shots, a red indicator light shows when the unit is charged and ready to fire, a laser sight aids in aiming.
