What new weapon should I add to Battle for Vesta?

Ok, I've implemented many of the features that people have asked for here at TA for Battle for Vesta. This includes pause, save game, better sound, more enemies and others. I've got several new features implemented but not released including difficulty levels and a survival mode. Oh, I have a new icon (see below) as well that will come out in the next release.

I'm going to start working on a secondary weapon. What do people think it should be? I was thinking smart rockets, that are sure to hit a target if you have a radar lock and could generate a large enough explosion to damage nearby ships. But I thought I'd ask here are TA first and see if anyone has an idea that sounds like more fun to me.

While I'm at if, here are some promo codes so you can try it out if you don't have it already. The only rule is that you have to come back and post a weapon suggestion after playing. (Yeah, I know, good luck enforcing gratitude...)

Freeze Cannon; to temporarily slow down/stop asteroids or enemy ships.

Laser Beam; for continuous low damage (Lower than the standard firing but a higher rate of fire).

Flare; Lights up target. (Could possible make it a target for other enemies?)

Just a thought. Very interesting game by the way. I was expecting a top down shooter and I get this amazing piece of work.

NeoShai,

Interesting ideas. The laser is a real possibility. I'm gratified that you liked the game. Tell your friends.

How about a gun that shoots out an electric blast thing and it transfers from one enemy to another, if close enough. Like the little doctor weapon (I don't remember the exact name) in Ender's Game (a book)?

da shiz wiz 19,

Is the new icon (attached above) sufficiently epic?

I'll think about the Little Doctor thing. I don't want something that makes the last few levels too easy, but maybe there is a way to make it work.
