The Polaron Ray breaks the tradition of "short range, high firepower" typical of Energy weapons, instead having the opposite of these traits.
It fires yellow trailing bolts in short bursts. Like most Energy weapons, Polaron Rays home in towards their target with perfect accuracy.
Strategy and Setup
Polaron Rays can potentially outrange Explosive and even Projectile weapons when equipped with Focused Optics. This combined with their homing ability makes them an unescapable kiting weapon, perfect for frigates and battleships.
Polaron Rays have relatively low damage output, therefore ships equipped with this weapon are often at a disadvantage in close combat. Always try to keep your distance to avoid this situation.
The Polaron Ray was once called the Polaron Beam, which had been renamed to Polaron Disruptor.
The Polaron Ray was originally a single, powerful shot that slowly recharged.
The current reload time varies by level: 1.4 s, 1.8 s, 1.2 s, 1.6 s, 3.0 s
