- Weapon leeches energy from the target with every hit.
The AI will use the "shields to energy transfer" command to restore their gun energy quicker if you hit them with this. I wouldn't be surprised if they also set their power settings to a high gun level as well. Because of these measures, the Leech Cannon will probably only succeed at slowing down movement, due to the afterburner drain, and doing weak shield "damage" thanks to the rapid use of the energy transfer.
