Big brother to the Plasma Gun, the Plasma Cannon is a flexible weapon,firing massive balls of energy that explode on contact.— In-game description

The Plasma Cannon is an unlockable secondary weapon for the Brute. It behaves similarly to the original Plasma Gun carried by the Raider, but has a larger clip size, a lower fire rate, and higher damage. Unlike the other secondary weapons carried by the Brute, the Plasma Cannon is a high damage explosive projectile weapon rather than a bullet weapon for finishing enemies.

  • The Plasma Cannon is most effective when paired with the Gladiator, since it is more suited to destroying base assets rather than killing players. The Plasma Cannon becomes the primary weapon for dealing with players, whereas the Gladiator is used for area denial and base destruction.
