|Weapon damage and characteristics|
The Polaron Cannon is an experimental direct-energy weapon being developed by GLi-Tech Corporation. It produces an eerie crackling arc of polaron energy that reduces the weapon's accuracy but enhances its psychological effect.
- If you have any gameplay tips, hints, or background information relevant to this topic, please post them here.
This is strictly a close-combat weapon. Its experimental nature means that it is relatively expensive, but you may be able to obtain one free by 'field-testing' for GLi-Tech. If you have the energy, and the speed required to get close to your target, this is a capable weapon.
It is an effective weapon against Polaris ships due to the large energy damage output, however you will have to risk entering the range of their own beam weapons in order to use it. Conversely, it is largely useless against heavily armoured ships such as Auroran cruisers and Manticores.
Overall, it is probably not worth the free mass to install these weapons. However you can obtain up to three of them for free, depending on the player's mission string (1 from GLI Tech missions, 2 from Pirate sub-plot missions).
