Ground weapon

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Ground weapons, or personal weapons, come in two different forms: melee and ranged. Both are available and optional for both factions.

Melee[edit]

Melee weapons include bat'leths and other such items from various cultures. There are also unarmed melee combat abilities such as the karate chop and Vulcan nerve pinch. It is also possible to use the stock of your ranged weapon to attack enemies who come into close range, or strike with unarmed attacks like palm strikes while equipped with a pistol. Personal shields are only marginally effective against melee attacks, which will deal 80% of their damage directly to their target.

Playable weapon types[edit]

Ranged[edit]

Ranged combat involve the use of energy beam weapons, pistols, cannons and utility weaponry that can be beamed in such as turrets. There are also abilities that allow you to throw various types of grenade.

Damage Types[edit]

  • Phaser: 2.5% chance: +2 Stun and -50% Runspeed
  • Disruptor: 2.5% chance: -10 All Damage resistance for 10 sec
  • Plasma: 2.5% chance: __ Plasma Damage
  • Tetryon: 2.5% chance: -__ All Shields
  • Polaron: 2.5% Chance: Weapons Malfunction for 5 sec
  • Antiproton: +20 Crit Severity Bonus

As part of the ground combat revamp in Season Four, the 30 meter range for primary and secondary attacks was altered to make different weapon types have a more distinctive characteristic.

Special Weapons[edit]

There are several weapons in-game that are either special or unique in some way.

See Special Ground Weapons for more information.

Modifiers[edit]

There are seven factors that can affect personal weapons. These are weapon rarity, Modifier suffixes, spent Player Skill Points, Personal Equipment, Equipment Sets, Kit Abilities, Player Abilities and Traits. Some of these are passive bonuses, while other require activating by the player and have a limited time span.

Weapon Rarity[edit]

As of Season 5, the rarer the weapon, the more base damage it would do, regardless of suffixes.

Modifier Suffix[edit]

Uncommon Ground weapons will have one modifier suffix, Rare will have two, Very Rare will have three and Ultra Rare will have four. The same modifiers may appear multiple times (e.g. [Acc]x2, [Cap]x3, etc.). .
