Artemis was an unfinished weapons project by Poseidon Energy and the Enclave, designed as a late-game weapon that could be crafted by characters with a high Science skill, using schematics from Mesa Verde.
- The railgun can be spawned in the demo with the command CreateEntity Weapons15mm_Artemis_railgun.wea, but lacks the coding necessary to use it as a weapon.
Behind the scenes
- Artemis was the child of Zeus and Leto, twin sister of Apollo, and the goddess of the hunt in Greek mythology. Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was Diana.
- J.E. Sawyer's Simple makes no reference to either Artemis or 15mm EC. The 2mm EC parallel is coincidental. It does, however, reference railguns as part of technology level 8, alongside power armor and energy weapons.
