"The dreaded Skaarj blades are just as dangerous at a distance, firing a pair of deadly laser-charged poison projectiles. Alternate fire is a debilitating poison that slows opponents."
- UC2 manual

The Skaarj Razik is a weapon which appears across all of the Unreal series, but makes its playable appearance in Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict.


Overview Edit

The Razik is a Skaarj weapon that consists of a set of wrist-mounted blades and an energy blaster. It is always dual-wielded by the Skaarj.

It consists of two (sometimes surgically) attached blades on each wrist. It can also fire electromagnetically charged shots from specific points located between the blades.

In Unreal and Unreal Mission Pack: Return to Na Pali, only some of the Skaarj Warrior caste have Razik. These Razik are retractable when not in use, and look like they might be bone claws and part of Skaarj physiology. The Skaarj use the Razik in a quick jabbing attack, or a more powerful spinning attack. When at a distance of their enemies, the Skaarj will either lunge with their Razik extended, or fire a set of energy bolts.

The Skaarj Trooper caste carries the same weapons as the player does, and use those instead of firing energy bolts. They simply use their fists in melee attacks.

In Unreal II: The Awakening, each Skaarj class has Razik that fire projectiles that vary in size and color, depending on the class. Heavy Skaarj can also fire two different types of projectiles - a fast stream of small ones or one big which tracks players. Like in Unreal and Return to Na Pali, the Razik is not equipable by players.

In Unreal Tournament 2004, the Skaarj are equipped with Razik that are clearly artificial in nature. They are a set of jagged, metal blades set into a piece of armour worn like a bracelet. These Skaarj don't use the blades, nor fire energy bolts, though one was seen using them to stab a player in the intro video.

In Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict the Skaarj's Razik function as either a melee weapon or a projectile weapon depending on how they are equipped. The Razik are artificial in nature.

The Razik also qualify as the "pistols" every competitor is entitled too. If used like this, the Razik will glow green with energy. The regular mode functions similar to the Razik in Unreal, launching dual energy bolts. The alternate mode fires a laser-charged poison projectile that poisons and slows down opponents.

Trivia Edit

  • In Unreal Tournament two teams (Red Claw and Iron Skull) of experimental hybrid lifeform with both Skaarj and Human DNA, called Skaarj Hybrids are entered as contestants by the NEG. These hybrids are not equipped with Razik.
  • The weapon was thought to be useable by players back in Unreal II: The Awakening. The weapon was codenamed "SkaarjGlove" and was never finished. The sounds of the "SkaarjGlove" are included in the "U2Weapon" sound package of the official Unreal II release, together with the "SkaarjGlove" mesh.
