Name: Hyper Beam
Firepower rating: Unknown (Believed to be the strongest energy based infantry weapon encountered.)
The Hyper Beam was designed by Space Pirates to be used for the upgraded Mother Brain design. The weapons strength was extraordinary. All the creatures that it was tested on were immediately obliterated. Others lived but the pure force of the blast was able to paralyze them. Since the beam is so powerful the Pirates feared giving it the ability to charge would be deadly in Federation hands but the Mother Brain was too large to fire deadly single shots so a charge was only added on a large scale. The Pirates took no chances and as soon as Samus Aran was spotted in Brinstar all data on the Hyper Beam was erased and destroyed.
