"Not as powerful as other weapons, this laser fires in 3 directions."
―In-game text, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X

Cerberus Phantom (ケルベロスファントム Keruberosu Fantomu) is a Shoulder-type laser weapon that Vile obtains by defeating Sting Chameleon in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X. This weapon behaves like Chameleon Sting; it fires a spread of three yellow lasers and the player can angle it more upward or forward by pressing up and down while firing. This weapon has moderate Weapon Energy usage and attack power. Unlike Vile's other laser weapons, Cerberus Phantom does not have shield piercing capabilities.

Cerberus Phantom is Storm Eagle and Rangda Bangda's weakness. Launch Octopus and X take a considerable amount of damage from this weapon as well.

Defeating Sting Chameleon will Vile not only be rewarded with Cerberus Phantom, but he will also be rewarded with Buckshot Dance and Trident Line as well.

  • Cerberus Phantom's name is a reference to Cerberus, the three-headed guard dog of the Underworld in Greek mythology, reflected in the weapon's three projectiles. Like all of Vile's other laser weapons, it also maintains a supernatural/undead theme.
