Cyber-guns were weapons utilised by Cybermen from Mondas.

Design and evolution Edit

The earliest Cyber-guns date back to when the Cybermen invaded Snowcap Base (see below). The Cybermen that arrived on the Moonbase in 2070 had smaller and slimmer metal guns which could fit neatly into their big and bulky chest units. (TV: The Moonbase)

During the late 20th century Cybermen invasion, Cybermen used standard silver guns, about three feet long, designed for two hands. The guns produced a "negative effect", not unlike that made by many versions of the Daleks' gunsticks. (TV: The Invasion)

In 1985, the Cybermen in the London sewers, as well as other Cybermen on the planet Telos, used a different, smaller weapon, easier to use with one hand. This produced a green, halo-shaped discharge. It could easily kill a Cyberman. (TV: Attack of the Cybermen)

The Cybermen landing force which invaded Snowcap base in 1986 had very different weapons, resembling large, cumbersome sun lamps held at their mid-sections. (TV: The Tenth Planet)

In 2526, a group of Cybermen who captured Briggs' freighter (TV: Earthshock) and another who were transported to the Death Zone on Gallifrey, (TV: The Five Doctors) used the same guns as the Cybermen in 1985.

Other information Edit

On the Moon's surface in 2070, the Cybermen did not use hand-held anti-personal weapons, but did employ a cannon-sized X-ray laser, sometimes referred to as a Cyber Cannon. (TV: The Moonbase)

The Cybermen from Pete's World contained Cyber wrist blasters. They also used energy blasters originally used by the Preachers, modified to disrupt Dalek shields. (TV: Doomsday)
