"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."
UT2004 manual

The Ion Cannon is a turret from Unreal Tournament 2004.

Overview Edit

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 is easily compared to a deployed Leviathan and Ion Plasma Tank due to their scarcity, power, and high health (they are the only vehicles over 1,000 health in UT2004).

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.
