Charge weapons replace gunpowder and other chemical explosives with electrochemical propellant, ignited with a short but massive shock to the cartridge. The propellant converts to white-hot plasma with a smoother, more powerful expansion than gunpowder, resulting in a much higher muzzle velocity. The recoil is slightly greater than with gunpowder, though not enough to significantly affect the user’s aim.
