As a point defense weapon, the Auroran Storm Chaingun acquires and attacks small, fast-moving targets such as fighters and missiles. Fire-control is automated; no command input is required. It comprises four Hail Chainguns (for a total of 8 Gatling guns) on a heavy turret mechanism. It is available from Rebel I and on most major Auroran worlds. It is one of two fully-automated PD weapon systems in the game (the other being the Quad Light Blaster Turret).

NotesEdit

If you have any gameplay tips, hints, or background information relevant to this topic, please post them here.

Although the Storm is the most widely available point defense weapon in the known universe, many pilots prefer the Quad Light Blaster Turret for its accuracy, weight, fire rate, and the fact that the QLBT does not require ammunition.

Due to the higher damage output than the QLBT, the Storm Chaingun is better at stopping Etheric Wake Missiles , EMP Torpedoes, and enemy fighters.

  • (The Storm is available on many worlds without Military Approval, and comes stock on a wide range of ships.)
