Energy Weapons

From Outscape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Energy-based ship weapons are powered entirely by a ship's power supply.

  • Energy weapons are blocked by shields (ordnance-based weapons aren't blocked by shields)
  • They typically do more damage to ships when shields are down/not installed than their ordnance-based counterparts
  • Because energy weapons are powered by the ship's power they take up less space than ordnance-based weapons (which need additional ordnance modules on-board to function)
  • Are generally more expensive than ordnance-based weapons (energy weapons also require Ziryl in their construction which isn't needed for ordnance-based weapons)

Cannons (fixed mount)

  • Require a clear line of fire to a target (unable to fire at a target if another ship in the fleet is in - or moves into - the way)
  • Cannot move independently of the ship (unable to fire at a target not directly within its line of fire)

  • Require a clear line of fire to a target (unable to fire at a target if another ship in the fleet is in - or moves into - the way)
  • Can move independently of the ship to track and fire at a moving target (indicated by the AS angular speed property)

Armour bane

  • Do damage relative to the strength of the hull they strike (rather than a fixed amount like conventional weapons)
  • e.g. if the target hull has 1,000 HP and the armor bane weapon does 5 DPR (damage per round) it will do 5% damage per shot (5% of 1,000 is 50 HP per shot)

Plasma shells

  • Do not require a clear line of fire to a target (can strike any target in a fleet even if other ships are in the way)
  • Other ships within the splash radius of the target may also take damage (ships positioned close to each other in a fleet are vulnerable)

Fighter carriers

Fighter carriers are a type of ship weapon that launch fighter squadrons to attack the enemy during fleet battles.

Main page: Fighter Carriers


  • Research: the technology that must be researched to unlock a weapon for use
  • Size: Small, Medium or Large (the ship slot size it can be attached to)
  • PC (Power Consumption): (In MWt required for Energy weapons or Shells per volley for Ballistic)
  • RPM (Rounds per min): number of rounds that can be fired per minute
  • DPR (Damage per round): the damage each round delivers
  • DPS (Damage per sec): average damage done per second based on RPM and DPR
  • Splash: splash radius in meters for rockets (all ships within this range are affected as if directly struck themselves - and as with all ordnance weapons, shields are no defense)
  • FT (Flight time): time to travel from launcher to target
  • AS (Angular speed): speed of turret rotation in degrees per second
  • Fa (Farsu): cost in farsu (added to ship total farsu cost)
  • Zi (Ziryl): cost in ziryl (added to ship total ziryl cost)
  • Credits: cost in credits (added to ship total credit cost)
