Particle Cannon (EU2012)
Applications of our heavy plasma technology permit the creation of a burst-style particle beam, capable of unprecedented focused energy output. Its heat dispersal would be highly dangerous to an unmodified soldier, but a MEC suit is capable of mounting the necessary systems.
Source: XCOM: Enemy Within DLC
- Can only be used by MEC Troopers.
- While the listed Critical Damage (on the EW DLC) is 15-17, the actual values are either 15 (66% of the shots) or 16 (33%) due to a game bug.
- It has a very high ammo consumption level, allowing only for a couple of shots. Using the Collateral Damage ability will completely deplete its ammo level.
- The ammo capacity can be increased by 50% with the Expanded Storage ability and and by a further 100% with the Ammo Conservation project.
