The Infantry-Employed Electromagnetic Induction Rifle (歩兵用電磁気誘導小銃,   Hohei-yō Denjiki Yūdō Shōjū) is a Bullpup-type sub-railgun[2] created by Toho that first appears in the 2017 animated Godzilla film, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters.


Reiwa era

GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters

As the standard service weapons of United Earth soldiers, Infantry-Employed Electromagnetic Induction Rifles were plentiful as Colonel Eliott Leland's forces arrived on Earth. They received their baptism of fire when a swarm of Servum attacked []. While concentrated fire from the rifles was sufficient to bring down the first of these monsters, most of the rest were driven off or killed by the heavier weapons of the Powered Suits and Multipodal Batteries.

GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle


GODZILLA: The Planet Eater

After Godzilla Earth repelled King Ghidorah (anime trilogy), the surviving United Earth soldiers put their weapons down to live with the Houtua and let them become overgrown with vegetation.



The Electromagnetic Induction Rifle is able to rapidly fire 6 millimeter pellets, which are made of a special alloy.[2]

Pistol mode

Although primarily used in its rifle state, the Electromagnetic Induction Rifle's front grip can be detached and used as a pistol in emergency situations.[2] Colonel Eliott Leland seems to favor this form.
