Strategy

Revenge of the Yolk

This weapon is a safe pick due to it's infinite and instant linear range and it's strong overall, you can still destroy enemies one by one fast with good aim, you can also attack bosses with ease due to it's range and it almost always safely hits non-moving bosses.

Laser Cannon in action

It's similar to the previous game, still a good pick, linear instant range but not infinite when zooming out in certain levels, making this weapon very limited and unsafe in such cases, for the rest, it's still good and it destroys enemies in the same fashion as in the previous games. Also, the gift needed to obtain this weapon is orange-colored instead of yellow (which is the color for Boron Railgun instead).

Pros

  • Instant-hit rate with screen-wide linear range.
  • Strong and focused damage.
  • Destroys enemies one by one.
  • Safe pick against most bosses.
  • Fast fire rate when manually firing it.

Cons

  • The range becomes limited when zooming out.
  • Not recommended for asteroid waves and those with lots of enemies.
  • Overheats quickly.
