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. As a side note, if the Ion Cannon is hit, its laser will shake wildly, and be set off target for a few moments, making it more difficult to aim as it could possibly make the user miss a shot, giving attackers more time to destroy it.
