The company "Forward Defense" invented a a new rifle that has five barrels and can fire them together and rapidly.

It can sustain a high rate of fire for a long time, by using ammo bin as firing chamber and jettisoning them, effectively using them as heat sink.

There is no mention of ammo weight or jam handling, but that looks like a perfect fit for an upgraded Earth-Tech rifle in a game.
It even use the new 6mm ammo to make things interesting.

That looks like it could have been influenced by the metal storm weapons. Definitely something that could be put together by a cunning scientist and engineer with access to a few high tech materials and pressing need for bigger bangs.
