Orbital Laser ?

Post by Bill Huntington » Fri, 5. Jan 18, 03:33

I just came across the Terran Orbital Laser in the hold of a Woden. It was a juicy target but also had Hull Polarization in addition to 6 x2 shields.

We saw them as part of an early plot in AP. They look like they're stronger than the CW LT. Anyone know where we can get a supply?

This is a constant source of "irk" for me - there are none to be had for purchase. :( Until now (and thank you!) I didn't even know they could be found in the manner you did, the only times I've seen them is deployed here and there in Terran space (normally next to jump beacons.)

I got one when I went after a Woden that had a Jump Beacon. It appears to be nothing more than a reskinned Lasertower. You can use a Freight Drone to fetch a Plasma Beam Cannon from it just like from an LT.

Isn't there a player-buildable factory for them? I've always killed Terrans in AP so honestly wouldn't know.

Unfortunately, no.
