General[edit | edit source]

The Dyad Beam fires a sustained beam that deals heavy damage and has the ability to distribute across multiple targets even without the use of the Targeting Computer (you can override this ability by setting a primary target.)

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Dyad Beam has significantly more DPS than the other Tier 8 weapons and is hit-scan, yet has more range than the Paroxysm Cannon.

When multiple of this weapon is equipped, they have the ability to split fire against enemies in range, reducing the amount of overkill which would have decreased the efficiency of the weapon.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Dyad Beam has a much longer charge time than other Tier 8 weapons. Given the agility of many Tier 8 ships, it may well happen that enemies leave the weapon's firing arc before even getting to fire.

Like other beams, this weapon is weak to Weapon Disruption, such as from the Amarok's Incapacitate overdrive.
