The D.D.D.S. - Photon Mode fires one Photon Dynamic Warhead as well as launches a number of Disruptor Defense Pods, which fire on nearby foes before impacting the targeted enemy ship. It is generated by [Console - Universal - Dynamic Defense Deployment System].

Basic Information[]

  • Profession: Any
  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: While the Weapon Efficiency Cruiser Command is active (or Attract Fire or no Cruiser Command is active), engaging Dynamic Defense Deployment System will fire a Photon Dynamic Warhead. This projectile will deploy Disruptor Defense Pods every few seconds while traveling to its target and will detonate in a 2.5 km explosion upon impact.

    The deployed Disruptor Defense Pods will periodically fire a disruptor beam array at a random target within 10km and will function as a standard photon mine if an enemy gets within 2.5 km. If the Disruptor Defense Pods haven't engaged a foe as a mine after a short time, they will select a target within 10 km and explode upon impact as a standard photon mine.
