The weapon alerts enemies (generates noise) in a 20 unit radius.
Unfortunately, the only thing worth mentioning about this weapon is its diesel-punky appearance. Apart from that, there is absolutelly no reason to choose the Photon Cannon over the stronger, further-reaching and faster-firing neutron projector, plus the latter is much easier to find, too. Even if you do stumble upon this gun before you get yoursef a projector, there's little point to change your pulse rifles and meson cannons for it because of the Photon Cannon's higher armor threshold that isn't balanced by reduced AP cost or higher damage.
