Overview[edit | edit source]

Beam Array Fire at Will icon (Federation).png

This ability applies to both Beam Arrays and Dual Beam Banks. A standard beam attack cycle is four attacks against a single target. After activation, all beam weapons will attack the selected target (if within its arc, otherwise a random target) and a second random target within their firing arc and attack them five times each (for a total of 10 beam attacks per cycle). The effect will apply to any firing cycle that begins during the ability's duration. If only one target is present, only five attacks are performed. This ability is effective in delivering sustained fire against a few ships or for taking out fighter swarms and targetable projectiles.

Basic Information[edit | edit source]
