GeneralEdit


We have analysed the combat parameters of the enemy projectile weapon. An extremely high projectile velocity was observed, though it has a short range similar to the Rail Driver. I suspect its damage output is quite high, given the velocity.

The Storm Driver is an event projectile weapon. It was available in the event Crossfire. It fires two rounds of projectiles with minimal spread. In numbers, it appears to fire volleys of projectiles that are difficult to dodge at medium range. It is exclusive to Demon Corps ships only.

Strategy and Setup Edit

Advantages:Edit

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.

They are effective at shooting down squadrons and primarily oriented for PVP. Gladius drivers are more effective at destroying VEGA fleets due to its range.

Disadvantages:Edit

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.

Their damage output is still relatively low compared to other weapons such as Aurora rays and Manifold missiles.

Another drawback is it can only be equipped on Demon Corps Hulls making it useless if you don't have any.

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first Demon Corps projectile weapon shown to players.
