  • Each multiple of short range, the P-Beam does -25 damage.

Spinal Mount Particle Beams

Spinal mount particle weapons are the most common form of spinal weapons until TL12, where Meson spinal mount weapons become available.

The tonnage of a spinal weapon is always 10% of the ship's size. The Size is the size of the ship - 5 (so a 60,000t, Size 35 Azhanti High Lightning has a spinal weapon of 6,000t and size 30).

TL Weapon Atk Dmg Inc Short Size
10 Spinal particle beam +0 x80 10” 15” *
11 Spinal particle beam +0 x100 10” 25” *
12 Spinal particle beam +0 x120 10” 30” *
  • Damage is equal to log(tonnage) * TL modifier
