Dracon beams are the Yeerks hand held weapon.

Origin and Design: A Dracon Beam fires a red beam and causes a much slower, more painful death because the Yeerks specially designed it so that their enemies will feel the agony of cells being ripped apart.

The Dracon beam was named after its creator, Dracon 1423. They were created when the Yeerks stole shredders from their attack on the Andalite base on their Yeerk home planet. By mixing Shredder technology and Ongachic particle wave technology, they created the Dracon beam.

Military Distribution: The dracon beam is used by several other races including the Skrit-Na. The Yeerk Bug fighter has two dracon beams on each side and every Hork-bajir controller is equipped with a handheld Dracon Beam also.
