General[edit | edit source]

The Blight Nova Cannon is an advanced variant of the Nova Cannon, dealing Blight DPS instead.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

As it is a more advanced variant of the Nova Cannon, the Blight Nova Cannon retains the ability to deal splash damage especially to tightly grouped targets, due to its ability to split its fire whenever the primary shot impacts its target.

As resistance towards Blight DPS is not very common, only available through the base resistance of certain Umbra Hulls, any other ship will take full DPS from the weapon and fall really quickly to this weapon.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Blight Nova Cannon's DPS can be reduced if the opponents use Umbra Hulls such as the Wraith Cruiser, which have Blight resistance. The Blight Nova Cannon is also restricted to the Umbra and to cruisers only, making the Wraith Cruiser the only ship capable of using this weapon. Lastly, even with Thermic Disruptor III, its range will still be inferior to the standard variant with Harmonic Beam Capacitor, and thus Wraiths with this weapon can be more easily kited with this weapon than ships using the standard variant.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Blight Nova Cannon's primary and secondary projectiles deal a total of 100% and 40% DPS respectively, meaning that it can potentially do up to 140% DPS.
  • The Blight Nova Cannon is the first Blight Weapon in existence.
