The Xeno Beam Capacitor is an advanced version of the Beam Capacitor that targets Alien weapons instead. Rather than increasing weapon range, this special grants bonus damage against squadrons.
Xeno Beam Capacitors can greatly reduce the charge time of weapons, enabling your Alien-type beams such as Xeno Rupture Beams to achieve maximum damage.
Xeno Beam Capacitors enable your weapons to dispatch incoming squadrons quicker; this may be useful for Xeno Cluster Missiles, Xeno Seeker Missiles and other anti-squadron weapons.
The Harmonic Xeno Beam Capacitor is more efficient unless you only intend to battle modules.
- The Xeno Beam Capacitor's squadron damage bonus is considered worthless by many players, as they believe that it only works with the Xeno Rupture Beam.
- This special is no longer available to Umbra hulls after the late April 2019 update to facilitate the rock-paper-scissors system between T7 factions. Existing items will be replaced by Thermic Disruptor in the May 2019 update.
- Along with other T6 equipment, this item's build time was significantly reduced during the late April 2019 update as summarized here.
