The Fiddleback, manufactured by Triton & West, is an assault rifle currently manufactured in small numbers, and available in very limited quantities in the private sector only. It has a 50-round heat sink capacity, and several automatic fire modes including semi-automatic, three-round burst, and full-auto. It should not be confused with the more well-known M-88 Fiddleback, an Ibbani-manufactured sniper rifle.
Elara T'Meyra acquired a customised Fiddleback rifle during a mission on Bekenstein. The weapon had been augmented with a holographic scope (1.5x to 4x) and compensator, infrared target designator, built-in flashlight, a custom handle and foregrip made specifically for the pressure patterns of asari hands, and given a tactical camouflage finish.
