General

Phased Munitions are a booster for Projectile turrets. They are the counterpart of Phased Projectiles for ship weapons. They increase the shield bypass of the projectile weapons.

They are used but not as often anymore, they are mostly seen on the Bridge.

Strategy and Setup:

Advantages:

Phased Munitions is a good projectile special for projectile turrets that do not need a speed increase, a prime example would be a Storm Driver Turret or sometimes the Gemini Driver Turret. This allows it to do massive repair time to decoys.

Though, other than that it hasn't been seen alot after the "Grand Rebalance" which made Phased Munition Kinetic Driver Turrets rather obsolete on bases.

Disadvantages:

Its prime disadvantage is not about the special, but its competitor. Iridium Arrays V is a much more popular special as projectile turrets always struggle to hit targets, which Munitions will not help with.

Even if Iridium Arrays never existed, its shield bypass is rendered worthless after the same "Rebalance: which almost rendered shields obsolete and heavy armor a must have in PvP.

Setup:

A once popular but now obsolete fitting was to pair Kinetic Driver Turrets and Phased Munitions V to deal serious damage to sniper fleets, nowadays the shield bypass is terrible.

Only pair these in your Bridge with Iridium Arrays V, this along with either Storm Driver Turrets or Gemini Driver Turrets can do serious damage to both blitz and sniper fleets.

Trivia

  • Phased Munitions was once very popular when shields were still extremely popular and needed, though now it isn't needed as much anymore but still good to have if extra room is available.
  • After the Xeno Division was introduced this special became useless in High level PvB.
