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 in The Next Wave.

Strategy

It fires green bullets that are able to deliver more damage compared to most weapons, especially at high power levels. The projectiles will always go straight up. Its main disadvantages are the average projectile speed and slow firerate. It only gains minimal spread when it reaches ⚡20.

Pros

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

Cons

  • Slow projectile speed.
  • Slow firerate.
  • Minimal spread.
  • Bad choice for Asteroid Belt waves, thanks to the slow firerate.
