Quafe
Size - Small
Launcher groups - Projectile, Hybrid
Damage types - A little bit of everything

History:

Once, a cargo ship transporting a large quantity of Quafe cola (among other things) was attacked by bandits. Running out of ammunition quickly, some kid onboard decided to load the guns with Quafe cans, and the results where more than satisfying. Those bandits never saw the light of day.

Item type - Charge, Commodity

Ammunition that do a small taste of each damage type is an awesome idea. Obviously you can't make it do too much damage, because that is what the specialized ammunition is for (similiar to Resistance and Hardenser modules), but it would be nice to have a little mix of everything. I call it "Moderate Seasoning".

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Well, the only thing that would be able to trow a can as ammunition is a small Rail-gun. But I don'nt think it would do much more damage than a Titanium shell with Metallic plasma core....

And about seeing the light of day... it is a confuse thing to say in the space since every body in space thats orbits a Star have "Day" at one side and "Night" at the other.

I was hoping this would involve a use for the large surplus of corpses....

Shooting Elite Drone AI cores at people? Awesome

Kersploding Militants against someone's hull? Awesome, maybe a few will make it in a hatch and do some shooting

Maybe some prisoners too!

For some unknown reason, the molecular structure of a ship's hull, the nanites in the armor plating, and the energy shields all react violently with the chemicals inside Quafe Cola, thus doing noticable damage. Maybe not a significant amount, but it is still noticeable.

It would make a good in-game tie-in to Cinco de Mayo, methinks.

What makes you say that? Did they load giant balls of rice into the cannons?

Sounds like a Rock-It Launcher from Fallout 3. It was custom built weapon to be loaded with *any* worthless trash and throwing it at a distance for small damage but with virtually unlimited 'ammo'.
