The Archer rifle was commisioned by the New Krypton Military Guild when they realised that their existing equipment would be insufficient if they faced a superpowered foe. It is similar to most Earthly rifles, except for a red sun cannon under the barrel. With this, a targetted Kryptonian can be depowered to a human level for thirty minutes, which is usually enough time for them to be taken into custody.
This modified, twin-barrel firearm has a user-enabled firing sequence which allows both barrels to be fired in succession with less than one-thousandth of a Thrib (second) delay. The lower barrel of the Archer is a gauss-propelled slug thrower, while the upper barrel emits a high intensity beam of coherent light that replicates the effects of a red sun as described above. The rate of fire on the Archer is sixty rounds per second. 
- The Archer rifle can also be fired with lethal force, but it has not yet been used in that manner.
