The Balethorn Cannon is a special kind of Stranglethorn Cannon that was developed by Hive Fleet Kronos. This massive bio-cannon can shoot out a hyper-adaptive micro-filament. Hitting the target the sentient substance begins to contact, adapting and identifying to any defence with its contra-empathic surface. It could sharpens to a monomolecular edge to slice through even a thickest armour and plates or flaring red-hot to burn through kinetic shielding[1] so it is efficient even against creatures of warp.[2]
