The Wayward Gauss Rifle is a member of the Wayward Series and a scaled up rifle version of the Wayward Pistol. The Rifle features a similar nostalgic design, with an all wood butt-stock and foregrip. A revolving cylinder houses 36 4mm penetrators in 6 individual chambers each holding 6 rounds. When the trigger is pulled a series of magnetic fields pulls a round into the firing chamber and launches it along the barrel and out towards the target. Every time a round is fired the cylinder rotates. This allows the rounds in the previous chamber to loose the residual magnetic charger that might cause the weapon to fire two rounds at once.

To facilitate longer ranged firing a simple scope comes attached to the rifle allowing accuracy upwards of 1200 meters away. The scope is smart link capable allowing it to be linked to HUDs for quick target acquisition. In regards to design the weapon resembles antiquated shotguns more then rifles, this is attributed to the fact that the rifle hinges forward to eject the revolving cartridge and to load a new one. This is similar to 'hinged' shotguns of pre-hyperspace cultures. The design quality has found itself into the hearts of nostalgic weapons users, as well as Echani Spacers.
