General

The Xeno Beam Capacitor is an advanced version of the Beam Capacitor that targets Alien weapons instead. Rather than increasing weapon range, this special grants bonus damage against squadrons.

Strategy and Setup

Advantages

Xeno Beam Capacitors can greatly reduce the charge time of weapons, enabling your Alien-type beams such as Xeno Rupture Beams to achieve maximum damage.

Xeno Beam Capacitors enable your weapons to dispatch incoming squadrons quicker; this may be useful for Xeno Cluster Missiles, Xeno Seeker Missiles and other anti-squadron weapons.

Disadvantages

Xeno Beam Capacitors further extend your refit time to almost a month, considering that you have to equip Xeno weapons to get any benefit from this special.

Trivia

  • The Xeno Beam Capacitor's squadron damage bonus is considered worthless by many players, as they believe that it only works with the Xeno Rupture Beam.
