Pulsars

Pulsar (M2) icon

Pulsars are a continuous area-of-effect weapon that creates a radiation bubble with the user in its center. It requires a 2x2 S weapon slot to be equipped.

Pulsars are a very good area denial weapon against Missiles, Drones (and Carriers), and close quarter ships.

Trivia Edit

  • The weapon is named after stellar-type objects with similar name. Pulsars are incredibly small stars that are derived from a white dwarf and neutron stars, the only difference is that Pulsars spin thousands to million times faster. This gives it a very powerful magnetic field that creates massive amounts of electromagnetic radiation, repelling anything that gets close enough by pushing them though radiation pressure. This makes the game's Pulsar reminiscent to its namesake, but pulsars tend to have a beam of radiation from its poles.
