Capable of taking down anything in its path in one or two hits, this is what made the Lucifer so dangerous. This is described as a "Flux Cannon" in the Lucifer's tech description.

THE gun, the meanest, most destructive weapon in FreeSpace 1, period. It outdamages anything and everything; its refire rate is disgustingly rapid as well.

The FreeSpace Port made this into a beam weapon, but in retail FS1/2 it's actually a turret munition with an invisible head and a very long tail. In other words, it's a laser shot hacked to look like a beam.

It kills anything below a cruiser in one shot, anything above cruiser in three. It also has absolutely INSANE kinetic power, because whenever you shoot a fighter or bomber with it, the destroyed ship is propelled by 200 m/s before exploding, and its debris goes even faster.
