Samus needs a new gun.

Her arm cannon is equipped to do ridiculous things already, but there's surely something missing! What would be your choice of her next weapon?

I'm leaning towards a Bee Cannon. It fires angry bees. :3

HOUSE FREEMAN HAS THE BEE CANON COVERED

Personally, I want Samus's beam weapons to go back to their abstract roots. One with huge knockback would be a huge help, to start. Anyone got any good gameplay ideas for a beam cannon?

Here's a few I thought of. Most are probably too impractical.

Assault Rifle - Shoots armor-piercing rounds, like a Galactic Federation rifle. Needs ammo.
Spread Beam - Think shotgun.
Force Beam - Not damaging, necessarily, but pushes enemies and objects backwards.
Incendiary Missile/EMP Missile - Sort of like Ice Missiles, but with fire or electrical effects rather than ice.
Grenade Launcher - Sort of like the Missile Launcher, but... the projectiles bounce.
Reflect Beam - Shoots a beam that bounces off walls, potentially hitting more targets.
Gravity Beam - Pick things up, throw them around, drop them. Works like any other gravity gun.
Fondue Beam - CHEEEEEEEEEESE

If the speedrunning community is to be believed, we need the wood beam.

You know what would be so bad? If all of her suit's abilities could be combined into a single gauntlet of some sort....if you will, a Power Glove.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I would love a gravity gun, like Val suggested. That'd be pretty boss.

Sorry for the thread necromancy, but...

Also, I think Samus should have a drill weapon. Yeah, that'd be awesome.

Now that's out of the way, a Needler from Halo would be perfect for this bounty hunter

A laser that could bounce off of walls or a constant lader stream you could reflect off of mirror-esque plates on walls to solve puzzles would be cool.
