Description

Launches spherical plasma charges. Holding the trigger accumulates charge, boosting projectile speed and damage.
When holding the trigger for more than 4 s., plasma explodes around the ship, dealing damage to host and enemies in 1000 m. range.

Weapon history

Now the newest ships very rarely do not have weapons of their own. So, for the Custodian frigate, the Sentinels have developed the “Plasmatron”. The new weapon shoots plasma bursts generated by coils located in the weapon’s hull. However, the AI went further and added an interesting feature. When the shot is held, a plasma explosion occurs after 4 seconds. Unfortunately, the ship ends up in the epicenter of the explosion and takes damage as well. However, if the hull is damaged, the same protection algorithm will restore the armour. As a result, Custodian acquired a more flexible copy of the pulsar. An interesting fact is that both the Plasmatron and Cryolaser are manufactured using the same technologies. This is easy to notice, because the shapes of the weapons are incredibly similar. This occurs because of the special parts that are placed only vertically.

According to the Sentinels:

Our newest guard frigate Custodian also has a unique weapon, the Plasmatron. When creating it, we decided to implement a pulsar function into it. As practice has shown, this weapon is excellent for breaking through dense enemy lines, attacking and destroying their formation. This is exactly how our ships operate when closing alien portals. We hope that your mercenaries will learn to use this weapon correctly, otherwise they will become the cause of their own death. Although, for sure you will not give dangerous weapons to inexperienced pilots and endanger them.
