# Feasibility of this plasma cannon-Round 2 [closed]

My intention is to develop this idea through multiple phases of flaw searching, proposing possible solutions and starting it over again, until there are little to no flaws remain.

the first phase of this question

Flaw searching round 1 Conclusion:

• The target is locked to me and I'm locked to him with magnetic fields, so it has a chance to become a tug of war scenario.

Possible Solution: Hillarious and original, I keep it.

• There are more energy efficient ways.

Possible solution: I'm perfectly aware of that and the fact that this weapon wouldn't be energy efficient, but sometimes, having a beam that can cut through steel like if it was made out of butter, is good for dispatching multiple foes with one, quick strike.

• How would I make sure that the plasma doesn't cool down quickly?

Possible solution: This is still an important issue, my idea was to circulate electricity, through the plasma to keep it from cooling.

• The plasma is hot enough to melt down the face of the user with its radiant heat.

Possible solution: This isn't really an issue if the user is inside a mecha that designed to withstand the power of its own weapon, also tokamaks use magnetic fields to prevent similar things from happening.

• The change of a magnetic field induces currents in conductors nearby.

Possible solution: Just like in the previous one, this can be solved relatively easily.

• Strong magnetic fields give away my presence and there are mines that explode when nearby a magnetic field.

Possible solution: Easy cake and there is a way to protect the cannon from mines and kinetic force.

These solutions are mine and are likely to be flawed. So if I did, then where I'd failed?
