A beam cannon is a type of compressed energy weapon typically employed by starships, mecha, and sometimes tanks. Because of shielding and power requirments, handheld or even man-portable or crew-served beam cannons are unavailable.


It is considered a "simple technology", whose use dates back as far as the Dynastic-era of the Mage Wars.

Because of its simplicity and reliability, beam cannons continued use throughout the Course Books Timeline.
