High Density Beam Rifle

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

High Density Beam Rifles are a type of Ground Weapon. Their primary fire method shoots a beam of energy at a target.

They also have a secondary fire mode that shoots a concentrated bolt of energy at a single target dealing high damage, which can also damage other enemies behind them, with a good chance to knock back. These shots have the ability to deal a large amount of bonus damage if the target(s) is exposed.

Depending on the type of energy used, these weapons usually come with a 2.5% chance of applying a specific effect to the target, unless otherwise stated.

Special Weapons[edit | edit source]

There is currently one special High Density Beam Rifle available. There is also a pistol that has a similar secondary fire ability to a High Density Beam Rifle.

Modifiers[edit | edit source]

There are four factors that can affect personal weapons. These are Modifier suffixes, spent Player Skill Points, Personal Armor and weapon rarity.

Weapon Rarity[edit | edit source]

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

Modifier Suffix[edit | edit source]

Uncommon High Density Beam Rifles will have one modifier suffix, Rare will have two and Very Rare will have three. The same modifiers may appear multiple times (e.g. [Acc]x2, [Cap]x3, etc.).
