The Sirian Power Gun is a weapon in Serious Sam: Next Encounter.
The Sirian Power Gun is a powerful energy weapon that was employed during the Sirian's last stand against Mental. However, it was forgotten after Sirius fell and was only recently rediscovered by the Federation.
The Sirian Power Gun has two firing modes; laser and energy ball. The laser fires a very damaging laser at enemies that has unlimited range. The energy ball charges up for a few seconds after the fire key is hit, then releases a slow energy ball that can kill very large groups of enemies with one hit.

RATE OF FIRE: Continuous
The Sirian Power Gun was created by the ancient Sirians in their final stand against the hordes of Mental. After their defeat it was forgotten and lay unseen until discovered recently by the federation. Our scientists understand its workings enough to duplicate it and produce ammunition, but there are still aspects to its awesome power we are ignorant of. The weapon fires a super-charged beam of plasma with a range that often exceeds the vision of its user. For that reason, only Serious-class operatives may utilize this weapon in the field.
A secondary mode is accessible using [bound key]. This secondary mode allows the user to store up energy in a super heated charge ball by holding down the trigger. When released, the impact of the charge ball will generate a gigantic shockwave, taking out multiple enemies with ease.
- The Power Gun's laser is the most powerful and useful weapon in the game. It can destroy even the strongest enemies faster than the XM4000 Minigun and can damage an enemy no matter how far away it is from the player. In addition, its slow ammo consumption gives the player plenty of ammo throughout an entire level and lets the player use it against weaker enemies without wasting ammo. It should be used as much as possible as soon as it is obtained.
- The Power Gun's energy ball alternate fire is more powerful than the laser, but is less useful because it takes some time to charge up and its projectile is much slower than the insta-hit laser.
- The Sirian Power Gun's laser mode is very similar to two weapons that were scrapped in other Serious Sam games; the Ghost Buster in Serious Sam 1 and the Beam Gun in Serious Sam 2.
