By developing a firing mechanism capable of projecting machined shards of the alien alloy, we've created an extremely powerful weapon that has devastating effect on anything caught in range. However, accuracy falls off quickly over greater distances.
Highly efficient and deadly primary weapon, best suited for close combat.
Fires a single, solid alloy round surrounded in plasma discharge. (The reason it suffers a range penalty is the plasma cools the further away it flies, effectively meaning the cannon shot a piece of metal at a target)
