Projectile weapons will cause significant hull damage but are hindered by shields because it takes them longer to wear down a shields strength. Projectile weapons cause kinetic damage and are generally light weight giving you lots of mobility when flying.
Chain Gun:EditA simple projectile weapon that fires at a medium rate and overheats slowly.
Vulcan:EditThe Vulcan has a very high firing rate, but overheats quickly and also only fires small projectiles.
Scattergun:EditA scattergun fires a dense mass of bullets with extreme spread. This renders it rather useless for long-range combat, but it could decide a victory in a close-range dogfight.
Seeker Cannon:EditThis cannon fires very large projectiles which can home in on their target to a certain degree. Its disadvantage is the medium damage, range and frequency.
This cannon fires a large, slow projectile that deals a large amount of damage. It has a low firing rate, though.
