Guardian Gauss Cannon

Fixed-mount high-energy weapon, based on researched Guardian technology. There is a limit of 4 experimental modules per vessel.

— In-Game Description

The Guardian Gauss Cannon is a weapon that utilizes Guardian technology. It can be unlocked through a Technology Broker.

Compared to a conventional Railgun, the Gauss Cannon draws more power, generates more heat, penetrates armour more effectively, deals somewhat more damage, and has a longer range before damage falloff begins. Unlike AX weaponry it's still highly effective against human ships, though its armour penetration is excessively high for most man-made ships, and a well-Engineered Class 2 Railgun will likely outperform a Gauss Cannon against human vessels.

When powered and deployed, Gauss Cannons will emit a cyan glow from their core. This effect is altered by the use of custom Weapon Colours.

The Gauss Cannon is currently only available in a Class 2 Fixed version, which requires 1 Guardian Weapon Blueprint Segment, 18 Guardian Power Cells, 20 Guardian Technology Components, 15 Manganese, and 6 Magnetic Emitter Coils to unlock at a Guardian Technology Broker.
