"Dakka": Ork slang for rapid fire capability, based on the onomatopoeia for the sound of automatic guns shooting. You need moar of it. No exceptions.

BFG-180a Devastator
At slightly over 5 feet in length and at a weight of 200 lbs, the BFG-180a Devastator is best used as a stationary weapon but characters of great strength can use it as a normal ranged weapon. Each one of the Devastator's projectiles deals a small amount of damage but since the weapon can fire 180 of them per round, an experienced gunner could drill through city walls, mow down entire groups of enemy troops or cut dragons in half. Even a novice gunner shooting at a tiny target at maximum range could do some damage as at least some of the projectiles will hit out of sheer luck while an experienced gunner could wound enemies that can dodge or deflect bullets using the same principles.

Each one of the Devastator's six barrels is equipped with a magic cartridge that automatically creates ammunition then further enchants them with energy damage. Then the barrel telekinetically accelerates the enchanted projectiles and hurls them at the hapless victim the weapon is aimed at.
The devastator shoots in bursts of 30 rounds per barrel once per round for a total rate of fire of 180 rounds per combat round or 1800 rounds per minute. Roll attack and damage separately for each single round. Range increment is 200 ft for the standard devastator, 600 ft for the epic devastator.
Alternatively, the wielder can make full attacks, firing only a certain number of barrels per attack and thus possibly spreading the attacks over many targets. In this case, each barrel can still be fired only once and has to be fired in its entirety.
Each projectile does 1d4+1 physical damage plus 1d6 energy damage (12 in epic) of the user's choice. The energy damage ignores resistance or immunity.
