General[edit | edit source]
The Discharge Beam is a sustained Alien beam weapon that fires from medium range.
It appears identical to the Rift Beam in combat.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
When shield-switching against the Discharge Beam, surround the targeted ship with your own ships from all directions. This helps to evenly distribute the damage.
Before the weapon gets in range, use squadrons as a distraction. It will waste up to 9 seconds trying to destroy the squadrons before starting to fire on your ships.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Discharge Beam was first seen in Reaper fleets during Vengeance.
- The Discharge Beam was originally named the Void Beam, but it had been renamed due to the introduction of Void Damage.
