"A rapid fire energy weapon, this fires super-heated bursts of plasma at high speed. A favorite of the Longhunter, you can reload with energy cells when you deplete its ammo."
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter manual[1]

The Pulse Rifle is a weapon featured in Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. It is a rapid fire energy weapon that fires super-heated bursts of plasma at high speed. It is a favorite of the Longhunter.


The Pulse Rifle is a large high-tech rifle that sports a black-grey and silver color scheme.


The Pulse Rifle functions like an Assault Rifle, but instead of using bullets for ammunition, energy cells are used. The Pulse Rifle is fully automatic, compared to the Assault Rifle's three-round burst, and rapidly fires blue energy rounds. This weapon is best for use against large enemies such as Pur-Lin, High Priests, Demons and Campaigner Sergeants.

It also works great on weaker enemies, taking down Ancient Warriors with one or two shots. While useful, its ammo depletes fast. Ammo for the Pulse Rifle is commonly found around Energy Weapons and is also dropped by Sergeants.

This weapon shares ammo with the Alien Weapon and Particle Accelerator.
