Hypergun is a weapon introduced in Cluck of the Dark Side, and your starting weapon in that game. It's the latest word of destruction from the people who brought you the Boron Railgun.

Strategy

Instead of firing metalloid chunks, it's purely energy based. It's capable of rotating its output vector around, allowing you to cover a wider area with this weapon compared to its predecessors. The automatic firerate at the beginning is decent, and it speeds up with increasing power levels. If you're going to use automatic fire, watch out for Overheating.

It's available from Chapter 1.

In Universe, it's unlocked from Tier ?.

Pros

  • Decent damage.
  • Fast firerate.
  • Fast projectiles.
  • Energy bolts may spread.

Cons

  • Overheats much quicker on later power levels.
  • Slower automatic firerate with low firepower compared to its predecessors.
  • Manual fire isn't much better on later power levels.
  • Weighs a lot.

It's a member of the Nuclear group, so it has its weaknesses and strengths.
