The Shredstorm Cannon is a heavy weapon in XCOM 2. Like all heavy weapons, it can only be mounted on heavy armor.

The Shredstorm Cannon is a shotgun-like Heavy Weapon that fires sharp particles in a relatively wide cone. It deals heavy damage, and shreds a large amount of armor, up to 4 points. It is useful against heavily armored targets such as the Gatekeeper or Sectopod. Because of its area of effect, it is also useful for taking out groups of targets.

In-Game DescriptionEdit

A more aggressive variant of the Shredder Gun, the Shredstorm Cannon fires razor sharp particles in a cone to devastate close proximity targets.


Fire Shredstorm Cannon: Fire your Shredstorm Cannon in a cone-shaped area.

Tactical InfoEdit

  • The Shredstorm Cannon is useful against multiple enemies, and at close quarters, damaging enemies and shredding their armor.
