The Laser Cannon is a weapon that made debut in The Next Wave. It fires lasers that hit enemies instantenously. It's can only fire straightforward with slight spread. To fire this weapon, pick the Orange Present that drops from enemies. This page describes the version seen in Revenge of the Yolk onwards.
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.Ultimate Omelette
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).
