Overview[edit | edit source]

Torpedo: Spread upgrades the next torpedo attack to acquire N number of targets available within the firing arc, and fire N-1 number of that specific torpedo type per target. Example:

Rank 1 - Up to THREE targets acquired in firing arc, with TWO torpedoes for each target.

Rank 2 - Up to FOUR targets acquired in firing arc, with THREE torpedoes for each target.

Rank 3 - Up to FIVE targets acquired in firing arc, with FOUR torpedoes for each target.

NOTE: In-game animations may display more torpedoes for each target. Actual combat mechanics follow the above listing for damage calculations.

- The notable exceptions to this rule are:  Neutronic Torpedo.  This is a special Reputation Quantum Torpedo that follows the acquisition rule above, but launches ONE, TWO, or THREE torpedoes per target.  Tricobalt Torpedoes & the Temporal Disruption Device also follow the target acquisition rule above, but launch only ONE torpedo per target.  These are considered as 'heavies' that can be destroyed in mid-flight (Reference Torpedo: High Yield for details).

Contrary to the description in game, this is not technically an AoE (Area of Effect) attack, as it does not affect an area so much as attack a fixed number of additional targets inside the firing arc. However, it can affect the Area of Effect damage of torpedoes which have an AoE component or a secondary proc, such as Tricobalt Torpedoes, Gravimetric Photon Torpedo, Neutronic Torpedo, Quantum Phase Torpedo, Particle Emission Plasma Torpedo, Resonant Transphasic, and any other torpedo that has a secondary effect or blast radius.

The following projectiles are unaffected by this ability:
