There are 3 different weapon classes in Black Prophecy, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. To use a certain type of weapon you have to have put in the appropriate skill points. Each weapon has its advantage and counter meaning there are no wrong choices only on what is best for you. Also each weapon type has generally more or less mass than the other meaning that it will add or take away your ability to move your ship. The three weapon choices are:

1. Energy

2. Mechanical

3. Explosive
