The Ion Painter shoots out a small beam of light. You have to keep this beam on them until it looks like it powers up. When that happens, RUN!!!

An LEO satelite locks onto the ion signature, and frys them. Biiiiiiiiig boom! :)

The ION cannon is basically a laser guide for the ION cannon in the satelite hovering above the map. It has to be painted somewhere the satelite can see it or it won't go off.

It has to be held on a given position for 3-4 seconds before the satelite fires and you don't have alot of time to get away from the blast.

If you have any other questions, I'm a l33t UT MASTER ;)
