General[edit | edit source]
The Phased Solenoid is an Altairian Special for Driver weapons, granting increased weapon speed and shield bypass similar to Phased Magnets, but at the cost of shield energy.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The Increased Weapon speed and shield bypass greatly enhances the effectiveness of driver weapons such as the Eclipse Driver or Lancer Driver, affording their projectiles greater accuracy against moving targets. The Shield bypass also increases the direct armor damage, allowing driver weapons to possibly destroy enemy ships before depleting their shields, making it effective against the Firestorm Overdrive of the Bastion Cruiser.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
The Phased Solenoid however, decreases the shield energy of the ship it is equipped to, which makes the ship less durable in combat, making it more vulnerable to counterattacks.
