Basic Information[edit | edit source]

Enemies within 5km will be lured into attacking it. Enemies that attack and damage the beacon will suffer shield damage, have their damage resistance and shield hardness reduced. This effect can stack up to 10 times. At 10 stacks the target will become Disabled for a short time and will be unable to be Disabled by the Beacon for a short time. The Photonic Decoy Beacon is highly resistant to energy damage, but very susceptible to kinetic damage.
