"It's all all about a stealthy approach, you see. Stealth, and a nice big Cip-Quad, of course."
Mereel

The reciprocating quad blaster, often shortened to "Cip-Quad", was an experimental weapon developed during the Clone Wars by Merr-Sonn Munitions. It drew power from a power cell strapped to a soldier's back and was mounted on a specialized harness featuring microrepulsorlifts. The four barrels could be fired either one or two at a time depending on the rotation pattern selected, and were cooled on the recoil by coolant tanks located within the rig itself.

ARC heavy gunners using the weapon were outfitted with specialized armor that included head-up displays in the helmet and links to the harness that allowed them to make the best use out of the weapon. The weapon was best used against the slower vehicles of the Separatist army, such as the Corporate Alliance NR-N99 tank droid and the Trade Federation Armored Assault Tank, as infantry was often able to outmaneuver the weapon.
