Phased Projectiles boost Projectile weapons by increasing their shield bypass, allowing them to ignore a certain percentage of enemy shield defense.
Strategy and Setup
Phased Projectiles guarantee damage against shielded opponents even if you ultimately lose and fail to completely deplete the enemy's shields. They are particularly useful against regenerating shields such as the Repulsor Shield because enemies will take a huge chunk of health damage even if they get to fully recharge their shields.
In some extreme cases, you can destroy enemy targets before their shields go down, saving you the hassle of draining their shields. This usually happens against heavily-damaged ships or those that have regenerating shields.
Iridium Magnets are a much common choice as they can effectively multiply actual damage output by improving the weapon's accuracy.
