I'm fairly sure I know what the "F" in "BFGreen" stands for, and it isn't "very." It is apparently what results when Terran beam cannons are overdriven.


Funnily enough, no ship comes standard with this weapon. All occurrences of this gun are via FRED.


The BFGreen was only used once - in Endgame - and only on one of the Colossus's turrets. It is also positioned so that it cannot fire.


Calculations point out that this weapon has a yield equivalent to approximately 64.5 GT (Gigatons of TNT) per pulse.
