The heavy Gauss is cumbersome, but extremely effective. It operates with 3 particle accelerators and is virtually unstoppable. The anti-proton stream is confined inside a Gallium Arsenide shell that implodes on impact releasing the anti-matter.

The Heavy Gauss, or Heavy Gauss Cannon, is a slow but powerful weapon that deals Gauss damage. It is the Gauss technology near equivalent of a Gas Cannon armed with GC-AP rounds.
The Heavy Gauss closely matches the Gas Cannon in performance, although snapshots are less accurate and aimed shots are slower. In return, it has greater stopping power and a slightly larger ammunition supply. Weapon weight is slightly increased while clip weight is decreased.
As with all Gauss weapons, the Heavy Gauss and its ammunition can be easily mass produced as they do not require any exotic materials for construction.
Research for the Heavy Gauss is required to access the highly profitable craft Gauss Cannon.
Note: Gauss weapons must be manufactured
The Heavy Gauss is generally considered a poor weapon, due to being outclassed by the weapons around it. The Sonic Pistol and Sonic-Blasta Rifle have better power, accuracy, weight and clip size. Worse, its prerequisite the Gauss Rifle is only slightly less powerful, and fires three times as fast with the same accuracy.
