The Mark 1 PrototypeHyperion is a plasma cannon augmentation used by Viktor Marchenko. The augmentation is concealed within Marchenko's right arm. Upon activation, Marchenko's skin-like plating and prosthetic hand fall away, revealing the weapon and allowing it to be fired. The weapon is capable of devastating damage, either by a direct hit or catching its target in a small explosion once its plasma bolt strikes a hard surface. It can be fired in two modes: a slower but more powerful charged shot or machine gun like rapid fire. It is powered by a nuclear battery produced by Kubotchi.
The Hyperion is the first plasma weapon in the series to fire red plasma bolts. Every other plasma weapon has fired green bolts.
It is the first plasma weapon shown to be an augmentation, instead of a more traditional weapon.
It is the first plasma weapon shown to have 2 different modes of fire.
Being a directed energy weapon, concealed within a user's cybernetic arm, makes the Hyperion a lethal counter-part to the P.E.P.S. augmentation.
According to the concept art, the nuclear battery on the Hyperion is made in Japan and finished in Korea.
No matter how spectacular its performance or description, the Hyperion is unable to damage Jensen with the TITAN augmentation is active. Even Jensen's Rhino Dermal Armor provides considerable protection.
The augmentation icon for the Hyperion is visible in Smart Vision.
Schematics for the forearm part may be found in G.A.R.M. labeled Nanoblade kit. Made by Vadim Orlov.
The serial number of Marchenko’s battery is: NH1A515CS/1-
