The existence of this technology may be more proof that the Galactic Federation was already developing technology similar to Samus' prior to Metroid Fusion. However, Freeze Guns appear to operate using a considerably different method than the Ice Beam, namely by shooting some form of chemical freezing agent stored in a tank in front of the weapon's trigger.
- The Freeze Gun is carred in a holster on the right leg similar to Samus' own Paralyzer.
- The effect of the Freeze Gun seems to be stronger than that of Samus' Ice Beam, as a single shot was able to freeze a Magdollite solid, while it takes a fully charged shot of the Ice Beam just to freeze over a Magdollite's mouth. However, this could be gameplay physics, as the power beam in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption was much stronger in cutscenes than it was in actual gameplay.
