This gun is not a laser weapon and therefore doesn't overheat. It rapidly fires dense ionic charges and, because of its high fire rate, can cause great damage even though the amount of damage per shot is relatively low.

The Mass Ion Cannon is more affordable than it seems because it doesn't overheat. Ever. This means you don't need to buy a Coolant Unit. Mass Ion Cannons are most effective at short-to-medium range (up to 200 klicks). They will not become available until you read a news bulletin entitled "Blood and Ion."
