Epic Games revealed more details regarding this cool weapon in an official post on their website. The Plasma Cannon can be crafted in addition to being found on the Island.

You can collect it from IO Chests, as well as normal ones. Since the IO used Alien technology to invent it, the weapon can also be crafted by combining a Legendary Pistol with an Alien Nanite.

This weapon can fire plasma balls surrounded by an electrical dome that will trap enemies and deal repeated heavy damage to them before being impulsed back. Vehicles will be affected in the same way.  

However, only one or two plasma balls can be deployed at the same time, so you’ll need to get multiple Plasma Cannons and cycle through them in order to find multiple plasma balls at once.
