Mental Omega Wiki

Cryoshot is a support power available for the Allies from the Arsenal Depot. It fires a lesser cryo beam similar to that used by Cryocopters that freezes infantry and light vehicles caught in its wake, immobilizing them for a short time. Cryoshot can be used to great effect to stall enemies in a similar vein to PsiCorps' Magnetron, but do note that immobilized vehicles still can attack if they have a turret or are facing their target.

Unlike Cryocopters' cryobeam, Cryoshot has no effect on the victims' armor. It also cannot affect medium and heavy vehicles.

The Cryoshot will be replaced by Cryospear once a Tech Center is built.

It must have been that aerial cryobeam cannon, the traitors got it started! Its control panel is not here, but fortunately they cannot recharge it quickly.
