General[edit | edit source]

Atrophy Router is designed for Pharmakon Hulls, granting additional DoT Stacks as well as lowering the DoT threshold. It also increases damage dealt by Energy Cannons.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Atrophy Router increases the DoT stacks and lowers the DoT threshold for all weapons on the ship, reducing the amount of damage they have to deal to apply each DoT Stack. See more details about DoT here.

It also increases the damage dealt by Energy Cannon weapons, making them much more deadlier.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Atrophy Router does not provide extra range unlike the Beam Capacitor or Harmonic Beam Capacitor, meaning that cruisers with only this special and thrusters can be much more easily kited as compared to cruisers with the Beam Capacitor or Harmonic Beam Capacitor.

DoT is practically useless unless the enemy has no Shields, Ablative Armor or Screens left, so the DoT boost may not help as much.

The special also takes up quite a bit of space: 18% weapon mass at max level.

Only Pharmakon Hulls are able to equip this special.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Atrophy Router is the first Energy weapon special since Harmonic Beam Capacitor.
  • Atrophy Router is the first special to buff Damage Over Time effects.
  • This special was originally affected by a bug that caused it to boost all Energy weapons. Since the second January 2019 update, it now only boosts Energy Cannons.
  • This special has been locked to Tier 7 ships in the early November 2019 update.
