Strategy and Setup
Storm drivers are a medium range assault weapon, particularly for skirmishes between cruisers, cutters and frigates. It's high projectile speed and relatively high firepower in comparison with other projectile weapons makes it formidable in combat. It has moderate range, high firepower and being a projectile weapon that is intended for medium range combat.
It can be equipped with phased projectiles, reinforced rails or phased magnets to give it shield penetrating power, gravely damaging ships it targets.Because of its high projectile speed Iridium Magnets are not ever needed.And also Because of the prevalence of Spectral shields, Storm drivers being innately a projectile weapon can penetrate these shields twice as fast than other energy weapons. In addition, Electric Rails can allow frigates equipped with this weapon to effectively lock down and kill battleships or other frigates, thanks to the stasis.
Storm drivers do not have any outstanding drawbacks. They have a small minimal range making them a less effective at point blank combat. The volley of slugs fired from Storm drivers can at least be partially dodged if they are not enhanced with magnets.
Storm Drivers also tend to have problems taking out squadrons, especially if the ship targeted by squadrons is moving as well, making most of the shots miss.
Another drawback is it can only be equipped on Demon Corps Hulls making it useless if you don't have any.
