PION Beam Cannon
Remember those beam weapons on those shows you loved so much when you were a kid? They all had one thing in common: epic sound effects. That's all this thing has going for it. All the other weapons in this price tier deal more damage. And this thing? Not much. It'll do more than the electrolaser, sure, and it actually has a generator so you'll never run out of ammo, but it's not going to do any miracles. Don't blame me for the ridiculous acronym, either - it was the physicists' ideas, and everybody knows physicists can't write for shit. Neither can engineers. Anyway, what it stands for hardly matters. It's a piece of in-operable nothing, but if you can't part with your inner obese nerd, the perfect idiocy option is now all yours, so put it on the noisiest settings and enjoy.
