Blood tech is a technology unique to the Covenant Empire. It refers to weapons and components for ships and fighters and such which are powered by the blood of a vampyre. These weapons in any other hands than that of a vampyre are useless and will not function. Also in the hands of a true blood vampyre these weapons powers are increased than in the hands of a half blood. An example of these weapons are the Blood Ripper and the L11 Blood Laser Rifle which are both commonly used by the Bloodguard and are considered standard issue to them. It has also been documented that if a vampyre were really weak and close to the point of bloodlust that the blood tech will not work. It has also been documented in experiments by the Coven Empire that if a true blood was in a state of bloodlust the power of the tech was doubled.
