I love the curves (Destiny)

Why couldn't it be an energy weapon? The first thought that occurred to me was that instead of conventional cartridges, the magazine held a series of ejectable capacitors. The attachment on the front is the aiming laser, and when the trigger is pulled, a significant electron discharge from the chambered capacitor follows the path of the beam to the target.

Effectively a lightning gun.

The physics of the concept are solid. The only thing that makes me think this is unlikely is that we've already seen the Thunderlord in action. So such a representation of a lightning-based weapon isn't line with what's already been established.

So I'm sure I'm wrong, there. But it would be a prime idea.
