The second XSeed prototype and sister CF to the XCD-001-1 Prometheus
, the Kreuzgun matched its elder sibling’s performance in every respect. With the notable exception of firepower, where the XCD-001-2 actually surpassed its potent predecessor.
Instead of the sniper style Prometheus plasma rifle, the Project S team equipped the Kreuzgun with a squad scale nonintegrated plasma cannon 3x as powerful as the plasma rifle carried by the CF-014 Ein Dolph. The Kreuzgun’s weapon featured four barrels arranged in a cross pattern when seen head-on, hence the name. This sight was usually the last an intended target saw.
Combined with the same energy-absorbing 1D armor that made the Prometheus nigh indestructible, the Kreuzgun represented a major leap forward in Megami’s quest for the ultimate terror weapon.
