The Harmonic Beam Capacitor is a special for beam-type energy weapons that has been developed by the A.X.I.S.. It also grants a Harmonic Warfare bonus.
Strategy and Setup
Like the Original Beam Capacitor, the Harmonic Beam Capacitor increases the Range of Energy Weapons, and decreases the charge time of Energy Beam Weapons, enabling them to deal greatly increased damage in a shorter period of time.
It also takes up very little mass, and thus more room can be allocated to outfitting more powerful Beam weapons on the ship itself.
It also grants a Harmonic Warfare Bonus, increasing the damage dealt to all hulls.
The Harmonic Beam Capacitor's Charge time effect does not work on non beam weapons, making it a waste of space if equipped with weapons like the Pulse Cannon or Disintegrator Cannon. It also does not affect Alien Beam Weapons, like the Xeno Twinfire Beam or Xeno Rupture Beam.
The Harmonic Beam Capacitor can also only be outfitted on A.X.I.S. Hulls, thus limiting the amount of options it can provide in battle.
- The Harmonic Beam Capacitor Received a sprite change to make it more consistent with the other Specials, like the Harmonic Xeno Beam Capacitor.
- The icon was originally a battery like accessory, and now it is just the original Beam Capacitor Icon with a Harmonic Bonus on top of it.
- The Harmonic Beam Capacitor is exactly similar to the regular Beam Capacitor, except it offers a harmonic warfare bonus instead.
