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.
Pulsar M1 is a Heat weapon from Taraniak. It has lowered stats compared to Pulsar M2, but has lowered energy consumption.
Pulsar M2 EditPulsar M2 is an Energy weapon from Jurgans. It is statistically superior, but has 50% more energy consumption compared to its M1 version.
Pros and Cons Edit
|Can protect ship against Missiles, rockets, drones, and short ranged ships||Low DPS|
|No aiming needed||Low Damage:Energy ratio|
|Can damage ships inside the bubble in all directions||Very limited reach|
|Small weapon slot requirement|
- 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.
