For more information on ground gameplay, see damage type (ground) and ground combat articles.

Ground weapons, or personal weapons, come in two different forms: melee and ranged. They can be equipped on player characters and bridge officers.

Melee[edit | edit source]

See also: Melee

Melee weapons include bat'leths and other such items from various cultures. Personal shields are only marginally effective against melee attacks, which will deal 80% of their damage directly to their target. Melee weapons mainly deal physical damage, but some also deal additional energy damage which may also ignore shields.

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.

Ranged weapons can be divided into three categories, each consisting of several types of weapons:

Ranged combat also involve the use of abilities that allow throwing of various types of grenades or utility weaponry that can be beamed in such as turrets or mortars.

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.

Damage types and bonuses[edit | edit source]

For more information, see Damage type (ground).

Ranged weapons can deal Energy, Kinetic, Physical or Environmental Damage. Various Damage types can have a bonus effect known as a Proc. Most weapons come with one of these bonuses, while some rarer weapons may contain multiple.

Weapon's proc can be divided into three categories:

  • Standard: These are the 11 standard ranged weapon types, which can be one of six energy types. These are available from vendors and mission rewards, as loot drops, and can be crafted through the Research and Development system.
  • Dual-Proc: These weapons combine a standard damage and proc with a second proc—this comes at the cost of one Modifier. These weapons are available from Lock Boxes and the Reputation System.
  • New Proc: These weapons replace the standard proc for an energy type with a different one. These weapons are available from Lock Boxes, Reputation System, Fleet system or mission rewards.
Note: The colors used below represent the approximate colors of each standard energy weapon type.
