Named in memory of the quarians killed in the Morning War on the planet Adas, this weapon's electrical attack has been optimized for medium- to long-range firefights. Alliance marines take issue with calling it a "rifle" since, technically, it has no rifling in its barrel. The quarians shrug this off, as quarian weapon terminology rarely translates flawlessly into human languages.
The Adas Anti-Synthetic Rifle is a powerful weapon that fires rounds that inflict splash damage against enemies, making it useful for crowd control. Whole squads can be suppressed due to the knock-back effect. The rounds also have a slight target-tracking capability, allowing for easier aiming.
This target-tracking capability is only noticeable across considerable distances. This, combined with the reduced rate of fire and slow projectile speed, makes the Adas a poor choice against close-range or mobile targets.
The Adas' homing ability sometimes results in shots hitting cover instead of the enemy when aiming for exposed points. Conversely, aiming at certain angles will allow the user to shoot around/over cover.
The Adas has an inherent 2.00 damage multiplier against shields and barriers.
