Devastator Cannon

This is an immensely devastating version of the standard Disruptor Gun. Again it is based on the same inter-dimensional technology that seems to power the Dimension Gates. It is possible that these weapons are actually drawing power from some remote source connected by an inter-dimensional field. This amazing technology seems to be incongruous with the Aliens' organic weaponry and may originate from some other Alien intelligence.  From: Apocalypse Ufopaedia

The alien's proper handheld offensive weapon. Everything that really matters is improved compared to the Disruptor Gun. A large and heavy beam weapon doing more damage at longer range with better accuracy. Fire rate is slightly slower but is offset by larger energy (ammunition) stores. A dual wielded setup may be preferrable for increased fire rate at the expense of lower accuracy. A strong and accurate X-Com agent is best.
This weapon will become the mainstay of Anthropods and Skeletoids. Weapon shortages may not be a problem if explosive use on the battlescape is minimal hence, manufacture of these is exotic items will not be necessary.
