Dragon Ball Wiki

The Arm Cannon is a beam attack blaster weapon that low-level soldiers of the Frieza Force use to allow them to fight efficiently.[1]


Iru uses his arm cannon

It is worn on the arm, and has a wire that connects it to the scouter (some soldiers opt to wear helmets in place of scouters, in which case this wire reaches into a port in the helmet). The arm cannon amplifies the user's ki and fires it at a level suiting their battle power, it also allows the user to fly. The power of the beam fired is based on the power level of an opponent measured by the scouter that the arm cannon is hooked up to.[1]
