"While it has high damage potential, the concentrated beam of the Gauss Cannon demands accuracy from the user."
― Arsenal description [src]

The Gauss Cannon is a powerful and incredibly accurate weapon that fires steel flechettes (metal spikes essentially) at extremely high velocities using a magnetized chamber. Most enemies can be killed with one shot, though larger enemies, such as the Cacodemon and Baron of Hell, require more shots to kill.
