General[edit | edit source]

The Paroxysm Cannon is the spiritual successor of the Disintegrator Cannon, firing multiple homing projectiles upfront without any secondary effects, before a moderate reload time.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Paroxysm Cannon's projectiles are homing and thus can hit even fast-moving Tier 8 ships.

This weapon has a greater mass efficiency than other Tier 8 weapons at higher levels.

Unlike the Nova Driver, this weapon has no innate exploitable minimum range.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Paroxysm Cannon has rather low range compared to other Tier 8 weapons. Thus, it is not suitable for ships with the Ranger role, as they are forced to have a large minimum range.

This is not as bad for ships with the Titan role as the maximum range of the weapon is only 300 m less than the ship's effective range.
