The quantum burst was a type of heavy weapon produced for the Federation Starfleet's hazard teams, as well as their infantry forces at large, in the late 24th century. The quantum burst was a hand-held projectile weapon that fired explosive charges. It was designed by a hazard team member, Ensign Korban, and follows a similar line of function and design to the photon burst. Instead of miniature photon torpedo charges however, the quantum burst utilizes new and far more destructive mini-quantum torpedoes for ammunition.
The quantum burst fires mini-quantum torpedoes at the target and are highly destructive. There is also the option of using a phased laser sight, which can make the wielder of the weapon guide the projectile to a specific target or location. (ST video game: Elite Force II)
