  Blame Izubuchi. All the weapons he designed for 0080 are ripoffs of
real-world weapons (e.g. the Alex's rifle, which is a scaled-up FA-MAS).
As such, they all have ammo magazines or - in the case of the sketched GM
Sniper II rifle - actual shells. Passing them off as beam weapons is
pretty feeble, especially since energy pack weapons didn't exist at that
point.
