The Tau Cannon, more commonly known as the Gauss Gun is a highly dangerous experimental weapon used in Sven Co-op. It is a portable particle accelerator that fires intense rays of Tau-particles that are highly precise and deals immense amounts of damage with pinpoint accuracy. This, along with the HECU RPG are the most effective weapons that can destroy vehicles.

U-235 Cell
Made by Black Mesa scientists to cause extreme damage using Uranium-235 cells as ammunition to power the device. Primary fire shoots rays costing 2 cells, but it's main name to be a WMD is in its charged beam: the longer the charge, the more powerful it gets.

The beam can penetrate through solid objects, killing anybody (and possibly gibbing) what it hits, but this has its drawbacks: firing charged beams produces very high recoil, similar to being kicked down, however this can be used to propel the user in what is called "gauss jumping" (Note: this feature can be disabled in a server).

Players much charge the Tau Cannon at their peril: overcharging this weapon will overheat it and cause a backfire, damaging the user. If it begins to overcharge, fire it to avoid receiving damage. This will waste ammunition, so players must identify their targets beforehand.
