General[edit | edit source]
The Beam Overcharge Capacitor is an Altairian Special specifically tailored for the Surge Beam. It increases the duration of its overcharge effect, allowing the overcharge effect to apply on a target longer. It is restricted to Altairian Hulls or better.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Beam Overcharge Capacitor's primary purpose is to increase the duration of the overdrive effect of the Surge Beam, and doing so increases the DPS of the Surge Beam even further, thus augmenting its already impressive Damage output.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
As with other versions of the Beam Capacitor, Beam Overcharge Capacitors are only designed for beam weapons; the vast majority of other ship weapons do not benefit from the charge time increase.
Compared with other T6+ specials, the Beam Overcharge Capacitor is rather heavy.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This is the first weapon boost that increases the effectiveness of the Overcharge effect.
- The background color of the Beam Overcharge Capacitor icon was originally orange, but that was since changed to yellow.
- This item's build time was significantly reduced during the late April 2019 update as summarized here.
