The Heavy Rupture Beam is an enhanced Rupture Beam with significantly more firepower.
Heavy Rupture Beams share the same advantages as regular Rupture Beams, only that they deal a lot more damage.
They are also more mass-efficient, allowing your ships to pack a punch and have adequate defense at the same time.
Heavy Rupture Beams still have horrible range and cannot defend against squadrons. Their high damage only worsens the problem of overkilling targets and thus wasting firepower.
- Despite its description, this weapon does not take longer to charge up than the normal Rupture Beam.
- Along with other T6 equipment, this item's build time was significantly reduced during the late April 2019 update as summarized here.
