M-490 Blackstorm is a Heavy Weapon in Mass Effect 2.  M-490 Blackstorm is manufactured by Wegner Arms. Heavy Weapons delivers incredible firepower, but ammo is very limited. You must constantly seek out power cells to replenish heavy weapons.


The Blackstorm, colloquially called the "black hole gun," encases particles of matter within a high-powered mass-increasing field, elevating them to near-infinite mass. This creates a gravitational singularity that draws nearby enemies and objects inward for a short time. The rapidly-increasing gravity near the singularity's event horizon rips the objects apart. The mass effect field soon destabilizes and returns to normal mass, with explosive results.
