A mass accelerator is a weapon that uses mass effect technology to launch projectiles.

Mass accelerators are common weapons in the Mass Effect setting. Because mass effect technology scales easily, mass accelerators range in size from handguns to starship weapons that run the length of the ship.

Mass accelerator small arms function by removing a small piece of metal from an ammunition block, shaping it into a projectile, and propelling it with a mass effect field. Larger weapons use similar principles, all the way up to dreadnought mass accelerators that propel 20kg metal slugs up to 1.3% of lightspeed, so they hit like 38 KT bombs.
