"The Mass Driver is a semi-automatic, multi-shot grenade launcher useful as both a breaching tool and area denial weapon. Firing smart HIND explosive rounds, the weapon is highly effective against all forms of Dropsuit and light vehicle, while it's lightweight frame and compact design make it easy to wield in both urban and open terrain engagements"
The Mass Driver is a relatively common weapon used for it's "area denial" aspect, which allows choke-points and open areas to be bombarded with grenades, allowing entire attack fronts to either be closed off, or made very expensive to an enemy's attacking force to cross through. It can also be used to attack enemies behind cover, or from the safety of cover, thanks to the fact that the projectile has a parabolic trajectory.
As an Explosive Weapon, the Mass Driver has a +20% damage bonus to armour, and a -20% damage penalty to shields.
