You don't look hardcore. I can imagine you throwing bricks through a store window and then running home to mommy, which is why the CESTUS Pod is right up your alley. Completely lacking in any sort of style or form, it's a quad-pack of explosive, rocket-propelled bricks perfect for smashing windows - or armor, if you're moving up in the world. It packs a punch, hits hard, and leaves a mark your foe won't soon forget. It'll take some skill to use, but if you want to deal some damage and get out fast, this is how you do it.
