|— Fan-made Description|
|!THIS WEAPON IS UNAVAILABLE TO PLAYERS!|
|Projectile Speed||3,000 m/s|
The Void Beam is an Alien-only weapon. It looks like a green Thermal Beam and does Alien damage, which cannot be resisted by shields. In addition, like all other weapons used by the Reapers, this weapon has built-in shield bypass, further decreasing the effectiveness of shields. It closely resembles its cousin, the Rift Beam.
Unlike the Rift Beam, this weapon has a much shorter range, putting it on par with most player weapons. Its beam duration is also significantly longer than the Rift Beam's.
The Void Beam is primarily used by Alien Reapers. In Unknown Reaper Fleets, the weapon's long beam duration combined with the extreme maneuverability of the Reapers allow them to continuously fire on a single target while circling it at the same time, greatly increasing the difficulty of shield-switching.
In Unknown Aggressors, Void Beam Reapers have very high DPS, destroying Combat Modules in seconds. A single Reaper could take down half of a Combat Module armored with Capacitive Plates III in one firing cycle.
In Unknown Barrage Harvesters (Co-op), each Barrage Hive possess 3 Greater Void Beams, which deal greatly increased damage and have slightly more range than the regular Void Beam.
When shield-switching against the Void Beam, surround the targeted ship with your own ships from all directions. This helps to evenly distribute the damage.
Before the Void Beam Reapers get in range, use squadrons to distract them. The Reapers will waste up to 9 seconds trying to kill the squadrons before starting to fire on your ships.
- The Void Beams appeared for the first time during Vengeance, in Reaper fleets.
