The OmegaTech Frost Cannon was a weapon that sprayed a beam of frost and ice onto enemies, gradually freezing them in their place. When there were no enemies near the character, the cannon would not shoot a beam and instead upchuck ice-cold air, wasting no ammunition. If the Frost Cannon was used together with a partner, it would create an arctic explosion that froze nearby enemies.
Due to being superior to the Freeze mod, it presumably froze enemies at temperatures even colder than -253 °C.
The Elite Omegatech Frost Cannon was the upgraded version of the OmegaTech Frost Cannon. It froze enemies more quickly than it the regular Frost Cannon did. It also had a spiked ring around the barrel that spun when the frost cannon was fired.
A similar weapon, the Cryoshot, has been a usable weapon in Full Frontal Assault.
