Guardian Gauss Cannon Class 2

Guardian Gauss Cannon (Class 2)

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 Railgun of the same class 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 available in Class 1 and Class 2 Fixed versions, and can be unlocked at a Guardian Technology Broker.
