Summary

The Photon Phaser is a 2x2 Weapon room that can be built on the Small Weapons Platform. The Photon Phaser is like a mini Photon Disruptor with its high Shield damage and abysmal stats elsewhere. It also consumes ammo that recharges over time.

Usage

In Combat

The Photon Phaser is essentially a miniature Photon Disruptor, with high Shield Damage and lacking stats elsewhere. Its 1s EMP is sadly not enough to impact a room's reload time severely. Instead, the EMP is best suited towards disabling Sprinklers and Landmines, but this is really its only use outside of Shield Damage.

When To Use

The Photon Phaser is one of the two options for the Small Weapons Platform, the other on being the Minigun. The Photon Phaser is obviously meant to deal with shields, so players who struggle against shields should consider using the Photon Phaser over the Minigun. In addition, some players simply use the Photon Phaser to bring down the enemy shield as fast as possible.

AI

Since some players may not find the Photon Phaser useful outside of Shield Damage, AI that depowers it once the enemy shield down can save power. Note that using the "Enemy Ship has Shield" AI command can be risky because it can power and depower the Photon Phaser before it can even fire. This is because most of the time, another weapon room would have already taken down the shield.


Enemy Shield Room HP > 0% -> Increase Power By 1 OR Enemy Ship has Shield -> Increase Power By 1
None -> Set Zero Power

Crew Interactions

The Photon Phaser is buffed with the Science Science stat on Crew. The reload reduction formula applied when the Photon Phaser is buffed can be found here.
