Weapons are systems designed to damage and destroy hostile vehicles. Ranging from single-block Simple Weapons, to high-tech weapons like Particle Cannons.

Simple Weapons[edit | edit source]

CRAM Cannons[edit | edit source]

Main article: CRAM Cannon


A CRAM cannon is built similarly to a Custom Cannon which it replaced, its a firing piece with a barrel sticking out of it with some autoloaders,ammo, and gauge increasers. You can use them to make bombs and a variety of ammo types exist for them. CRAM cannons accurately fire high damage shells at a slow rate. They are better at passing through shields compared to Advanced Cannons because of their low shell velocity. The low shell velocity has a drawback however, it is hard to hit targets that are turning or moving unpredictably. Cram shells can reach up to 2 meters wide!

Advanced Cannons[edit | edit source]

Main article: Advanced Cannon


An Advanced Cannon is a complex weapon that uses custom ammo and is often considered more realistic then CRAM. They use gauge increasers in a cylindrical format and autoloaders that have ammunition clips sticking out, how many stick out is up to you. Most Advanced Cannons send each shell through an ammo input feeder, ammo clip, autoloader, gauge increasers or 6 way connectors, the advanced firing piece, a mantlet, and out the barrel.

Advanced Cannons, also called Advanced Projectile Systems (APS), offer huge customization options. You start by designing your shell in the Shell customizer that shows approximately how the shell will perform. Each shell is sent through the ammo input feeder, ammo clip, autoloader, gauge increasers or 6 way connectors, the advanced firing piece, a mantlet, and out the barrel.

Missiles / Torpedoes / Mines[edit | edit source]

Main article: Missile


If you had a chance to play with rockets when you were younger, this shouldn't be too bad for you. But if not, then neither will it be too hard. The concept requires few things to follow. But first, some of what we can achieve here:


- Heat seeking missiles and torpedoes
- Laser guided missiles and torpedoes
- Mines
- Bombs

Lasers[edit | edit source]

Main article: Laser


Lasers are extremely powerful, as they can travel long distances in 0 time and can rip through ships extremely quickly. However, they require huge amounts of power and huge amounts of space in order to be effective.

Particle Cannons[edit | edit source]

Main article: Particle Cannon


Particle Cannons are highly customisable weapons that use energy to fire light speed projectiles. It has a large firing piece and uses snaking particle accelerator tubes to increase the power of the cannon.

The cannon can be customised entirely to fit your needs and can be set to different damage modes: explosive, piercing, EMP and thump.
