General[edit | edit source]

The Prime Vulcan is the first in a line of kinetic damage type weapons, designed to combine the benefits of Drivers and Cannons.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Prime Vulcan fires a projectile that is capable of piercing through multiple targets, enabling it to deal heavy kinetic damage if the targets are lined up.

It has extremely long range, outclassing most Energy and Explosive Weapons, as well as a high projectile speed, making it difficult to dodge the projectile

When combined with the Renascence Battlecruiser, which removes its minimum range arc, the weapon becomes extremely deadly in close quarters as well.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Prime Vulcan can still be easily avoided by highly agile ships. Also, its range is still lower compared to most other Kinetic weapons like the Lancer Driver, Eclipse Driver, or Atomic Driver.

The weapon has a minimum range which can be easily exploited by ships with high forward speed and maneuverability, especially Pharmakon Hulls, as the Prime Vulcan only does not have a minimum range when equipped to the Renascence and not any other hull.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Weapon is the first Vulcan weapon.
