The most recent Alien 5 concept art shows us a look at Hicks using some kind of alien rifle against the Trematode (another new Alien creature conceptualized for Blompkamp's Alien 5). I've improved the resolution of the artwork by Geoffroy Thoorens below to better see the Alien Rifle. Is this a new, Weyland-Yutani created weapon or is it one of the Engineer weapons Weyland-Yutani confiscate from the Juggernaut ship we see them inspecting in other Alien 5 concept art?

Seems to be rather small if it was an Engineer rifle, but could be a pistol that looks more like a rifle to a Human holding it? What are your thoughts?

So Hicks is still injured?

Weapon is cool. I like it. Maybe grown from Juggernaut material ( Black goo ) or an Engineers weapon.

I think we maybe need to TAKE this in Context to the Other Concepts, and it seems the PLOT is about some Corporation who are TRYING to use the Xenomorph to Experiment and Create other Weapons from their Genetic Make-Up.  And this is LIKELY how they get to the Queen Suit that Ripley would Wear (Awful Idea)

So maybe this GUN is Engineered from the Xenomorph but i FAIL to see HOW a Reverse-Engineered Xenomorph can lead to a GUN?

Maybe it could be Reverse-Engineered from the Derelict/Engineer Ships Technology?

Or it could be a Engineer Weapon... but we have to ASK as to WHY they would have Weapons?  It makes sense for a ADVANCED RACE if they feel there are Threats to them in the Galaxy, but i have a FEELING that MOST of the Worlds they Interact with they MAKE-SURE they NEVER go and Advance Past what Mankind was Thousands of Years ago.

And so the GOO or Xenomorph/Deacon/Neomorphs would be Good Enough.

The Comics did introduce some Engineer Energy Weapon though....

But i think you could also Wonder if they have some kind of Weapon that is Related to the Xenomorph, and by that i mean some Weapon that Acts like a PAINT BALL GUN... that Fires Balls/Spores that HIT a Target and either INFECT them with the Pathogen/Parasite or they Merely SPLAT them with ACID.

Looking at the GUN though you have to ASK what makes it TICK?

I doubt its like i had MENTIONED... so it either Fires some Energy Beam or it Fires a Solid Projectile and i think its DESIGN is merely for that WOW COOL! Factor... so it looks like its got the Xenomorph DNA/Aesthetic.

Another Question would be does that WORM/SNAKE have ACID BLOOD?

If it does then HICKS is looking to get BURNT!
