Kryptonian Plasma Rifles was used by the Kryptonian Warrior Guild led by General Zod during their attack on the Council of Five. Jor-El managed to get a hold of one of these rifles and use it to defend himself. He took it back to his lab where he protected his wife Lara Lor-Van and his infant son Kal-El.
After the Black Zero Event in Metropolis, several Kryptonian weapons found their way onto the black market. A group of criminals used these weapons to break into the Wayne Enterprises R&D Facility to steal from the vault. They were ultimately stopped by Superman, who destroyed the weapons afterwards.
Kryptonian Plasma Rifles are designed to emit blue or green energy blasts. Certain variants of the rifles can melt objects.
- Soldiers within the military guild often make use of a scaled down Side Arm as reserve munitions.
