Gauss cannon is a ship weapon in Master of Orion.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Gauss Cannon is an extremely powerful linear accelerator which hurls a massive burst of tiny projectiles at near light speed. Gauss bursts inflict damage, regardless of range. They are treated as beam weapons for accuracy purposes. The Gauss Cannon is a Shield Piercing technology, meaning that it completely bypasses their target�s shields.
