Connor Ward carried a gauss cannon as a backup weapon

The gauss cannon is a heavy automatic anti-infantry gauss weapon, firing spikes at supersonic speeds.[1]

Man-portable and vehicle-mounted versions exist,[1] as well as robotic sentry versions, such as that used by the auto-turret.[2] Designs for auto-defense cannon turrets were available as far back as 2499.[3]
