Weapon System Efficiency is a Cruiser Command ability. It reduces weapon power drain by 25% for the cruiser and all nearby allies.

Basic Information[]

  • Locale: Space
  • Game Description: The Weapon System Efficiency Command reduces power drain from weapons by 25% for the cruiser and nearby allies. This Command will reduce the significant drain from directed energy weapon fire. Ultimately, this will lead to higher sustained damage and quicker recovery from firing energy draining powers.

PBAOE Weapon Power Cost Reduction

  • Affects Friend and Self (20 max)
    • -25% weapon power cost


It is worth noting that this ability operates under the same mathematical rule that governs cooldown time reductions. Weapons power-usage is calculated using the following formula:

Power_Cost = Base_Power / (100% + 25%) or Power_Cost = Base_Power / 1.25

For a beam array, this would reduce the base power cost from 10 to a net cost of 8 points, instead of 7.5.
