Reverb ray is similar to ECHO ray, it fires a beam that bounces from ship to ship, striking three ships at maximum, with each shot inflicting more and more damage. It bounces onto ships that are within 1000 metres. The damage per bounce increases dramatically and is extremely potent against groups of ships.
It has a impressive cost for building/refitting/weight on to hulls being cheap in both resources and time. It is gradually becoming a standard weapon on cruisers amongst high level players.
Strategy and Setup
The Reverb ray has an outstanding build and weight cost/ton and time being the first legendary to have a free instant repair refit for level I. Because the damage increases rapidly per bounce, in close range combat, Reverb ray can rapidly eliminate multiple ships quickly at medium range. They are very light as well, hence outfitting them with maximum firepower and range is very feasible even on Mark IV Revelation cruisers.
Players with battleships engaging a fleet of cruisers escorted with a Ragnarok carrier must be wary. If the cruisers are equipped with Reverb rays fusion thrusters and focused optics V, take heed that these cruisers are fast deadly and a single mistake when flying your battleships could result in being surrounded and destroyed by such a fleet.
Reverb ray is a cruiser exclusive only weapon, while other ships miss out on benefiting, it greatly enhances cruiser's performance in combat. Cruisers can have high firepower, speed and range when equipped with Reverb rays.
Reverb ray struggle destroying single ships. Should you find yourself fighting against a Reverb ray equipped fleet of cruisers, you should spread your ships out.
A critical disadvantage that was not originally present when the weapon was first released is that the Reverb ray is a very poor weapon against squadrons, their lasers do not bounce between squadrons ever, rendering them very ineffective against squadrons.
