Cathode cannons were originally designed by members of the Android Abolitionist Front, and many varieties made by different races nonetheless are decorated with circuit designs reminiscent of the weapons’ android inventors. The tactical cathode cannon is a standard-issue weapon for members of the Front, while advanced, elite, paragon, and shockstorm cathode cannons are often used by mercenaries and assault forces with a variety of goals.

Weapons with the unwieldy special property are large and awkward, can’t be fired without cooling down first, or are otherwise difficult to use with repeated attacks. You can’t use an unwieldy weapon as part of a full attack (or any other action in which you could make multiple attacks), you can’t attack with it more than once per round, and you can’t use it to make an attack of opportunity.
A wide line weapon functions as a weapon with the line weapon special property (Core Rulebook 181), except the line is 10 feet wide. When determining the squares that are in the path of a line, note which squares that line would normally pass through (Core Rulebook 268), and extend the area to one side of the line (your choice) so that the line is 2 squares wide. For an obstacle to block the path of a line, it must block the line’s full width; otherwise, the line continues (at full width) beyond the obstacle.
