has been changed. It now shoots a beam of concentrated energy at a target at long range.
Hardcore Playthrough Weapon of Choice
The Force Gun is widely regarded as the best weapon to use while playing on Hardcore difficulty (along with the trusty Plasma Cutter). It has the ability to take out multiple enemies with a single shot and can knock enemies over, buying the player more time. While it's Primary fire acts like a Shotgun, it's Alternate fire acts like Sniper Rifle. Very useful when attempting to pick off enemies from a distance.
