Strategy and setUP
A powerful, short range weapon and bigger brother of the Pulse Ray, effective at close ranges. It possesses significantly more firepower than the Pulse ray. Lower tiers of this weapon have a better weight to firepower ratio and are incredibly efficient with firepower to mass ratio.
Disruptor Ray I and II are generally inexpensive to research, as you progress to higher level Disruptor Rays, the costs to develop the weapon ramps up exponentially, as well as the weight and installation time of each weapon. They take up minimal equipment space leaving a lot of room for armor and shields for ships such as Harrier frigates, allowing them to become resilient and powerful at the same time.
As of all the weapons, the Disruptor ray has the highest damage output in level V, than all the other weapons in the miner rebellion. The first is Disruptor ray V, followed by the Plasma torpedo V, while the third is Mass driver V.
The Disruptor Ray has a very short range and lower level players who use it usually don't have Focused Optics V which means they will be outranged by Gladius Drivers and most weapons. This means it is usually terrible for hulls that rely on range like battleships or destroyers.
It also has a okay DPS but not the best and VEGA Mining Ship Weapons usually are much better in DPS standards and overall efficiency on combat. Polaron Ray Battleships with Focused Optics V are also much better than Disruptors.
- Due to a previous patch, the DPS was nerfed significantly.
- Disruptor rays used to be extremely prevalent in PVP combat with many, many fleets equipped with this same weapon.
- Disruptor Ray used to be named "Beam Laser".
- Like all energy weapons, the shots of the Disruptor Ray will home onto targets.
