The light charge blaster is a turret-only ranged weapon. It is the main armament of the auto charge turret. It fires a 3-round burst that deals significant damage but with a minimum range.

This weapon cannot be independently obtained in normal play. It is provided here for comparisons sake.

Acquisition

Light charge blasters spawn on all auto charge turrets. However, it is not possible to obtain it directly in normal play. Buildings do not drop it upon destructions and pawns carrying it will not drop it on death, downing, or complete loss of manipulation like other weapons. It can be spawned in by the Debug actions menu but, like all unobtainable weapons, will disappear after being dropped.

Analysis

Like its bigger brother, the heavy charge blaster it has a short warmup but lengthy cooldown time. Once fired, it devastates anyone unlucky enough to be in its way. It fires more rounds per burst but slower than the heavy charge blaster, while also having a longer range, significantly less accuracy at long range, and a minimum range of 4 tiles.

Version history

  • Royalty DLC Release - Added.
  • 1.1.2589 - Add custom art and name for the light charge blaster used by mech turrets. Previously was called heavy charge blaster and used the same texture as the heavy charge blaster, despite the different stats.
