- "An exact replica of the Ion Cannons used during the Skaarj War battles. During the 10 days siege (sic), Ion Cannons were placed in the heart of major cities as a last hope to slow the Skaarj progress. While providing huge firepower, Ion Cannons also caused many human casualties with their large blast radius."

The Ion Cannon is a turret from Unreal Tournament 2004.
Works similar to the Ion Plasma Tank's turret. Only used officially in AS-RobotFactory, although the description implies it was also used against the Skaarj. Code shows that a minigun-like secondary fire was considered, but ultimately not implemented.
It can easily destroy the Goliaths that the attacking team has, and forms a heavily despicable foe to the attackers. As countermeasures, the Ion Cannon has a 5-second long "warm-up" time before the shot is fired, and in which time, a laser designator (Identical to that of the Ion Plasma Tank) comes out of the barrel.
