So I find myself in recent days infinitely missing the Izom Aphrodite. It's an SMG, it's a Grenade Launcher, it's a whole lot of fun in a package. Has anyone played with the numbers to make it 5th acceptable?

I'd give the Aphrodite a statline of Acc 5, DV 8p, Ap -, Mode BF/FA, RC 1(2), Ammo 40(c), Avail 8F, Cost 1,600. Standard upgrades are Electronic Firing and Folding Stock. The GL is SS, has 1(m) ammo capacity and has all ranges reduced by 20%, except the minimum range. However, to balance it a little I'd put the Avail at 11-12F.

Forget the Aphrodite. I want the Yamaha Sakura Fubuki back. Burst fire with SA recoil, oodles of ammo, all in a Light Pistol package. Always had one for my characters that weren't focused primarily on firearms combat. Never needed to reload during a fight, ever.

I liked all the Izom weapons, the Aphrodite and RP-63A are my favorites. There was a conversion guide somewhere.

...yeah wondered why it never reappeared

It was the signature weapon for my ambidextrous gun bunny Death Blossom.

That is the official character conversion, but it doesn't convert gear, nor does it give suggestions on how to convert gear.
Turned in a live tox-shaman for 1 mil (split 4 ways) and helped kill another one. But piss off the other 3... Oophs, looks like more money down the road for me. B)

Dear Loyal Customers,
We here at Ares Macrotechnology strive to ensure that our products are at the bleeding edge of technology.
That being said, we are currently developing a new line of longarms that will rock the entire market.
However, at this time we here at Ares Macrotechnology can only provide what is currently on sale: the celebrated Ares Alpha.
This rifle has been the choice rifle for countless soldiers, security personnel, private military companies (such as Knight Errant and Firewatch), and for some of the most daring shadowrunners on the planet.
Time and time again, this rifle has proven to be the most qualified rifle for standard combat, wherever and however that may take place.
Although there are many restrictions on the Alpha, we here at Area Macrotechnology strive daily to make this quality firearm available to a wider crowd of responsible people.
Despite these restrictions and what other people may say about 'concealability' and other details, this rifle is still the best on the market.
It's in the name: Alpha

Please take time to consider all the advantages of Ares equipment.

Catalyst really needs to come up with a sheet of arms converted from 4e to 5e for all of the supplements.  As to my favorite I just give my characters a plain old Ares Predator.  For heavy fire power the AK 97.  If you have to absolutely kill everybody in a room except no substitute for the good old fashioned Kalashnikov.

Actually, the Ares Alpha is a better option, better damage, ACC, recoil reduction (not mod based), and comes with a grenade launcher.

The Franchi Spas-24 is my gun of choice.  Even more so now that Hard Targets gives us back extended clips.   ;)

Not sure about a conversion, but if was anything like the new Izom Artemis from Street Lethal I can see why you liked it. I am really liking the artemis especially with the mods I added. Found it in Chummer along with several other goodies from there and had to go get the book. Love the design too.
