Once a Tech Center is built, Cryoshot will be replaced with Cryospear, which lasts slightly longer and can now immobilize every vehicle, making it more effective to stop armies dead in their tracks, but has a longer recharge time. Otherwise, Cryospear is functionally identical to Cryoshot.
The AI will use Cryospear to target the player's largest group of units. Ignores cloaked targets.

|—Allied intel during Operation: Ghost Hunt|
- Cryospear is first usable in Ghost Hunt.
- In the Casual and Normal difficulties of Convergence and Paranoia, Cryospear can be activated without the need of Arsenal Depot and Tech Center.
- In Reality Check, a crate that allows Libra to call a 1-time Cryospear is present next to an Allied Cargo Plane wreckage on the path to the ex-Epsilon base in the first phase (doesn't appear on Mental difficulty). Cryospear is also used during the final boss battle when Norio is at 50% health. Cryospears will be targeted randomly in the battlefield, and visual warnings will be visible before the Cryospear is shot. A Hunter-Seeker will be deployed and detonate where the Cryospear will be fired.
