Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Glance Cannon fires a spread of shots that chain between targets, similar to chaining weapons. However, while chaining weapons lose a portion of their DPS with each chain, the Ricochet retains the base DPS of the weapon itself, causing all ships affected to take full damage if they are affected by the Ricochet, making the Glance Cannon extremely deadly against grouped targets.
The weapon has extremely long range for an Energy weapon, which can be further boosted using Fleet Commanders and specials to be on par with Kinetic weapons.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
The Glance Cannon shots can be dodged, although not by multiple ships grouped close together.
Utilize Energy Resistance technology and defenses in order to reduce the damage done by this weapon.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The weapon is the first weapon to utilize the Ricochet mechanic.
- This weapon has the longest range of any Energy weapon (except for hangar weapons such as the Cyclotron Beam), at 3,750 m.
