Andromeda Initiative engineers developed the automatic X5 Ghost from the baseline M-8 Avenger to make it easier to maintain and modify aboard the arks and the Nexus. The standard rifle for Initiative personnel also possesses recording and sensor functions so it can be left behind as a "black box" by doomed explorers.
- The X5 Ghost has negative recoil, meaning that as the trigger is held down, the weapon's accuracy gradually increases instead of decreases. It reaches its highest accuracy after continually firing for 2 seconds.
