Once again the stars echo with the repetitive bangs of machine-gun fire. Developed by Phobos Proprietary Systems, the Chatter Cannon propels slugs of uranium-titanium at high speed towards the target. Firing every 10th of a second, the Chatter Cannon can dish out a severe amount of damage in a short period of time. The slugs inflict minimal damage to a ship’s shields but are devastating against ship hulls.
- One of the best strategies with the Chatter Cannon is to take out the target's shields with a different weapon and then switch to the Cannon to finish them off.
- The Ammo Hold system increases the Chatter Cannon's total ammo count to 937 bullets.
- The Chatter Cannon is the only non-missile/rocket/sapper weapon in the game to have limited ammunition.
