Arsenal

Its missile, the spread bomb is a carry-over from Gradius II. This ship has two different kinds of lasers available: Round and Pulse. The round laser, the most unusual weapon presented in this game, fires concentric rings of laser origination. This weapon is very powerful when is correctly used.

Pulse Laser Gun

The pulse laser is a two or three pronged burst laser, similar to the twin laser in previous titles, this seems to be one of the weakest lasers in the game.
