Experimental Weapon

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Experimental Weapons are a type of starship equipment which can be equipped on certain starships that have an Experimental Weapon slot. Most ships do not have an Experimental Weapon slot. Tier 5, Tier 5-U and Tier 6 Raiders and all Tier 5, Tier 5-U and Tier 6 starships with a Tactical Commander station, 7 weapons, and 1 or fewer Hangar Bays receive an Experimental Weapons Slot and have by default a basic upgradeable Experimental Weapon. There are several types of Experimental Weapon, listed below.

Unlike standard starship weapons, Experimental Weapons are not affected by weapon firing modes or enhancements in most cases, such as those granted by bridge officer abilities or specific consoles.

Players who have access to a ship with an Experimental Weapon slot may claim a stock "default" weapon, the Experimental Hyperexcited Ion Stream Projector, from the Reclaim tab of the Dilithium Store (for 0 Dilithium).
