First Appearance

The Next Wave

Neutron Gun is one of the oldest weapons in the Chicken Invaders series, appearing in every game since The Next Wave. It made its first appearance in The Next Wave and got a visual update starting from Revenge of the Yolk and beyond. This page describes the version seen from Revenge of the Yolk onwards.

Strategy

It fires green nuclear bullets that are able to deliver more damage than most other weapons, especially at high power levels. The projectiles will always go straight up. Its main disadvantages are the average projectile speed and slow automatic firerate. Firing it manually, however, lets you shoot it as fast as the Ion Blaster.

It's always available from the first chapter.

Pros

  • High damage, especially at high power levels.
  • Perfect for bosses due to its focused damage.

Cons

  • Slow projectile speed.
  • No spread.
  • Slow automatic firerate.
