Infernal Wave Driver I, II, and III Respectively

General

Infernal Wave Driver is an extremely powerful, long range projectile weapon. The Wave driver was originally developed by VEGA Security and heavily modified as an exclusive weapon for Demon Corps, it has a very high amount of damage per shot, far beyond most current projectile weapons and retains its range and shield bypass attributes. They are only available in certain events, mostly Civil War.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages:

Infernal Wave driver inflicts massive amounts of damage, more than three times that of the regular Wave Driver. This high DPS makes it EXTREMELY deadly in crafting - when equipped on a Mk V hull, they can do massive amounts of damage against the hull they counter. This high damage usually results in a quick battle, with many ships getting destroyed in rapid sequence. In addition, the Infernal Wave driver's innate shield bypass ensures that even heavily shielded opponents will take heavy damage. They also have a range equivalent to that of the dreaded Vector Torpedo, making it possible to farm with it too.

Disadvantages:

Infernal Wave drivers are a projectile weapon, making items like the NET Torpedo all but necessary, as most projectile weapons need Iridium Arrays V to actually hit the target under the best circumstances, making farming difficult.

Just like almost all projectile weapons they are terrible at destroying squadrons, making it incredibly hard to shield against a carrier, especially one with Spectre Squadrons. Just like the Wave Driver, they also tend to miss targets even with Iridium Arrays V, because they don't have an explosive radius (unlike the gladius driver), making it difficult to hit strafing cruisers or frigates. They also have a rather moderate minimal range arc, making cutters with Manifold Missiles devastating.

A huge downside to the Infernal Wave driver is that it has a HUGE amount of build time and high resource cost. The Lv III version has a 3 day refit time and costs over 4 million resources in total. This gives ships like the Hellfire Battleship a long, long refit time, along with a draining resource cost. Added to that, they are extremely heavy, making it hard to balance your ship out with good tech.
