I'll stick to the Orbital Bombardment device. Know what it fires? Simple metal rods.

Not as showy, mayhaps, but much less likely to burn up in the atmosphere.
Let me ask you something. Which is more terrifying? A metal rod coming from space, or flaming grizzly bears with chainsaws for arms raining down from space? Which is deadlier? A rod might leave survivors, all it wants to do is follow gravity; bears feel only hatred and will hunt down every target down to the last man. Checkmate, flaming chainsaw arm bears shot from space wins.

I just don't want it to rain again. The acid just pisses them off.

Let's see.
Electricity: It killed one and the others learned not to touch the electric fence.
Radiation: I've still got to live here, so this is out of the question.
Ugh. Any other ways any of you can think of?

With these things around, I'm stuck living in a dark metal bunker.
No, really. Just fire the O.C.B.C and no longer fear the night. It is the pinnacle of humanity's technological development, and can solve li
Literally every problem known to man.
Overly Complicated Barrel of Cats?
Orbital Chainsaw Bear Cannon.
Fully automated, it breeds every species of bear, attaches chainsaws to their arms, then launches them from low earth orbit. You can even select what species of bear and the number of each you want for every launch!
Bah. I'll stay with the Orbital Shark-Bear-Octopus-Tyrannosaur-pterodactyl-ghost-dragon-machine gun-chainsaw Cannon.

Seeing as a space rod causes explosions on par with nuclear bombs but without the nasty radiation or stigma, while the bears will burn up in the atmosphere...(and grizzlies are omnivores focusing on botanitcal matter.)

See my suggestion, which are invulnerable due to being part ghost AND hunt down any survivors.

Everyone knows that a undead can't wield chainsaws. That's like werewolves wearing silver necklaces.

I've seen multiple werewolves snort silver-laced drugs and nothing bad happened; besides, these are dinosaur undead; they've an exception.

Looking at that reminds me of a genetic engineering experiment gone wrong. It...ended poorly. I knew him well. Now throw in deadly weapons and ghostliness...collateral damage on the planetary system level.

Worse, it sounds like a dinosaur from a parody of Terra Nova. A bad parody.

I take more inspiration from Axe Cop when looking for hilarious weapons, but that's the point. These things are meant to be used to kill planets.

What conceivable purpose would you have in rendering the better part of a million miles of space completely uninhabitable?

...That would be a justification for making something habitable, not uninhabitable. Besides...how familiar are you with the inverse Hawking effect high concentrations of ectoplasm have?

Oh don't worry, they're primarily used to kill a planet before a Tyranid/Zerg/whatever swarm can get there.

There are no ghosts! I made sure to build a Hell specifically to house them and weaken them to where they cannot escape.

These are the other ghosts.
GWG: Mostly the souls of vampires, zombies, and eldritch abominations they were eternally hungry in life. They continue to be so after death and thus eat the planet before the other guys can.
