The existence of this weapon may be more proof that the Galactic Federation was already developing technology similar to Samus', or reverse-engineering her gear, prior to Metroid Fusion. However, Freeze Guns appear to operate in a largely different manner to the Chozo's 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 sequence that allowed MB to be killed is similar to the method needed to kill a Larva Metroid, in which both are first frozen prior to inflicting the finishing blow with a different weapon.
- 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.
