Special Weapon Effects

Fun detected. Obliterate. – Drastically increased weapon damage. Consumes 6 ammo per shot. Has a weapon charge-up time.

Usage & Description

The pinpoint accuracy and high damage mean that this weapon can reliably kill most mob-type enemies in one to two hits. The small charge increases damage to an extent, and is relatively short, even for a full charge. This pairs very well with any character, but especially so with Moze, due to skills like Forge allowing ammo regen of the ION CANNON, and a majority of her Demolition Woman skill tree buffing splash damage output, especially Torgue Cross-Promotion. The ION CANNON notably synergizes with the Enforcer Guardian Rank reward Overkill due to its high damage being capable of one-shotting regular enemies.


  • Its skin is similar to a low-rarity Hyperion weapon skin.
  • An ION CANNON with the Annexed prefix will consume one more ammo per shot (total 7) instead of doubling it (total 12).
