Introduction

The Ballista is a long-range (up to 1,100 meters) medium energy weapon. It has a light and heavy conterpart (Arbalest and Trebuchet respectively) and can be viewed as the energy counterpart to the Weber.

Strategy

The Ballista is a powerful sniping weapon with a charge-up attribute: that is, it actually has multiple reloads: the first reload, or actual reload, takes 1 second and allows the Ballista to fire when it's done, but damage when unloaded with only this charge is complete is miniscule: you must wait 5 more seconds for all 10 other charges to finish charging before you can unload with full damage.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Energy attribute allows it to pierce energy shields
  • High accuracy due to fast projectile speed
  • 1,100 meter range allows long-range engagement and sniping
  • Quick reload
  • High damage when fully charged

Cons

  • Single projectile means shields will soak up excess damage when destroyed
  • Ineffective against physical shields
  • Poor sustained Damage Per Second
  • Ineffective at close range
  • The glow of the weapon charging makes it easy to spot
