A non-lethal weapon (insert Jayne's scornful tone here) usually used by law enforcement, this weapon is not generally used by Alliance Military. The weapon emits a highly-focused, low-pitched sound wave with enough force to drive a big man to the ground, much like a taser would today. (Seen in Ariel and Trash.) One benefit of the weapon aside from its lack of lethality is the reduced chance of property damage on those beautiful Core worlds -- the weapon seems to have no adverse effects on non-living objects. And at close range it can't blow a door open, Jayne's frustration in Ariel when Mal shots the door from the other side.

A simple 21st century equivelant of this weapon is the toy http://www.air-zooka.co.uk AirZooka, which operates on exactly the same principle, albeit with a considerably lower output intensity.

Changed line 1 from:

A non-lethal weapon usually used by law enforcement, the sonic rifle is not generally used by Alliance Military. The weapon emits a low-pitched harmonic sound wave that hits with enough force to drive a big man to the ground. It seems to fill the role of a modern taser. (Seen in ArielEpisode Ariel? and {{Trash}}.) One benefit of the weapon aside from its lack of lethality is the reduced chance of property damage on the beautiful Core worlds -- the weapon is short ranged and has ultra-low penetration capabilities.
