When the weapon is activated a charge of helium is drawn from the magazine and heated. When the trigger is fired, the charge is accelerated down the barrel by magnetic fields in the barrel. Due to the low mass the charge exits at a substantial speed.
It takes three seconds for the first charge to heat properly. When the charge is fired another charge is drawn and heated taking two seconds. When the weapon is returned to safe, the charge is allowed to cool and returned to the magazine.
It takes ten seconds for the first charge to heat properly. When the charge is fired another is drawn and heating taking five seconds. When the weapon is returned to safe, the charge is allowed to cool and returned to the magazine.
