The Malorian Arms Assault Cannon is a prototype weapon that was given to the legendary solo Morgan Blackhand by the equally legendary weaponsmith Eran Malour. It's the finalized model of his long-awaited Assault Cannon, which was first unveiled on October 18th, 2020[1] in Night City HQ. At the moment Morgan owns the only one and production and sales won't begin until next year.[2]

Specifications[]

This massive autoloader fires its .75-caliber smart-grenades from low-pressure steelcased shells, so recoil is modest (about that of a 10-gauge shotgun, although the muzzle flash is impressive). These projectiles are actually rocket-powered, laser-guided micro-missiles similar to smart bullets with fragment-doped explosive-gel warheads (if armor is not penetrated, armor's SP is reduced by 1/2 total damage rolled).

Twelve-shot box magazines of this ammunition feed into a port ahead of the trigger assembly—when no clip is loaded, the foregrip can fold up to seal the magazine well against fouling. Being made of carbon-carbon composites, the weapon is fairly light despite its bulk.[2]
