Weapon Characteristics

Projectile Weapons are weapons that use Bullets, Shells, Missiles, and/or explosives to damage the target. All Projectile Weapons have a travel time to the target and use ammunition when fired. Projectile Weapons use very little energy and generate little heat when fired making it exceptional at long engagements when temperature is critical. Projectile Weapons are best suited for shredding the hull of a ship after the shields have been taken down. All of the weapons that are in the current version of the game are the Multi-cannon, Cannon, Fragment Cannon, Missile Rack, and Mine Launcher.
