Weapon Foundry

Notable information:

  • Designs inspired by pre-Golden Age weaponry
  • Survivor of the Golden Age
  • Former defense contractor for Clovis Bray
 

Häkke is a weapon foundry of the Last City[1]. Häkke weapons feature hexagonal designs and tan surfaces with orange stripes. Häkke weapons are simple, reliable, and focus on offense. Perks are unlocked first, with stat modifiers as the last upgrades[2]. They are frequently high impact, low rate of fire Kinetic weapons that have better accuracy and recoil when they are aimed and stationary, in sharp contrast to the high-mobility weapons of VEIST. Hakke weapons are typically named after a famous ruler or warrior followed by a letter (i.e. Galahad-E). Häkke weapons are one of three foundries featured in Armsday. They make Auto Rifles, Pulse Rifles, Hand Cannons, Shotguns, Sniper Rifles, and Sidearms.

As of the Red War, Häkke had extended its arsenal and products towards target-tracking rocket launchers, scout rifles, submachine guns, grenade launchers and Sparrows[3]. Over three years after the Red War, City investigator V. Maier found out Häkke had scooped up a piece of the Traveler's Cage and kept it in their armory. The technology was stolen by three Psions of the Psion Conclave, in order to research Ghaul's Light-trapping technology, to the horror of Ikora Rey[4]. In The Witch Queen, Häkke was given a foundry origin trait.

In Season of the Seraph, it is revealed Häkke as a company is a survivor of the Golden Age. During that period, the company was a defense contractor working under Clovis Bray I that had apparently attempted to recreate the powers of The Anomaly. Production hit a dead-end until they were provided with the data for Synthweave, leading to the creation of Revision Zero. In the present day, The Guardian would obtain a derelict frame along with schematics for the weapon, prompting them to use the Relic on Mars and the assistance of Fenchurch Everis to restore it to its original function. At the same time, Fenchurch would investigate Häkke and discover, among other things, the aforementioned incident with Caiatl's Psions.

Design Philosophy

  • Hammers, not scalpels
  • Relatable design harkening back to a lost era
  • Häkke is not about exciting form, it is about exciting function
  • A weapon's weapon
  • Häkke is the instrument of the people
