General

The Repeating Polaron Ray is a modified Polaron Ray with an ability to bounce onto nearby ships, causing extra damage, similar to the function of the ECHO Ray. Each bounce does 60% of the previous damage.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Repeating Polaron Rays are incredibly lightweight for their potential damage output. Their chain effect allows them to damage multiple ships, achieving up to 170% listed DPS.

Repeating Polaron Rays can also damage ships that are otherwise out of range through their chain ability.

Disadvantages

Repeating Polaron Rays actually deal less than their listed DPS against a single target. To break even against the regular Polaron Ray, they have to hit at least 2 targets.

Repeating Polaron Rays deal reduced damage to modules. This combined with the chain effect makes it difficult to take down individual modules since the damage is so spread out.

Trivia

  • The Repeating Polaron Ray appears identical to Polaron Ray III-V.
  • The Repeating Polaron Ray's primary DPS is 77.9% of its listed DPS.
  • Each bounce reduces the damage output by 40%.
  • The Repeating Polaron Ray is the first Repeating ship weapon.
