Near Field Disruptors are a highly destructive type of light globe. They are used for excavation but can also be used in warfare.

These globes launch short-range bursts of light that disrupt the energy bonds holding matter together, disintegrating the matter and causing an explosion. The globes are able to recycle a portion of the energy expended by recapturing the force of the explosion.

At low settings, Near Field Disruptors are quiet and slow. When they are turned up they become steadily louder and more destructive. At the highest settings the globe itself is destroyed and an enormous amount of matter is annihilated, effectively turning the globe into a bomb.

Special Forces Team Alpha use Near Field Disruptors during the Raid on Serrin.[1]
