Automated Defense Battery
This ship item slots into the Tactical Console slot. Tactical Module that grants the ship a passive 360 arc attack power with a short range.

Soooo. What does this do? Adds 45 Plasma Damage to all my beam attacks? Or is a passive attack power when i get close to someone? Seems the two descriptions differ. Anyone got any clues / can shed some light on this? lol.


PS. I'm at work so i can't just test it myself :/

Reports from people who've used this in game indicate that it is exactly as advertised.

It is a passive 45dmg plasma turret which fires on whatever is closest to you within about a 3km range and takes a tactical bridge console slot. Users say it's better than expected, great at shooting down plasma torps, mines, energy drainers, fighters, etc.

Thanks for the screen shot. But yeah that is weird. I'd /bug it as a text error. Most people are as the last guy said saying that in game it actually does what it claims to do. A passive defense weapon great for mines and other small easily blown up stuff.

I'll have to check when I get home if mine is the same way and /bug it if it is.

I have it currently equipped, so far only tested it against other ships. BUT those ships at the time had fighters flying around and the passive weapon seemed to know to change fire - I had the cruiser targeted but the Auto Defense was picking off the fighters for me. Incredibly helpful in my cruiser. If it works the same way with other incoming projectiles, I'll be thrilled and try and find a way to put it on each ship I have.

Ack, I want blue items so bad. Do you ever get blues from mission rewards, or is it pretty much only drops?

So do you have to have plasma weapons for it to be any good.

Unequip it in the Briar Patch, it likes to shoot clouds at close range, not good.

No it does not actually add anything to weapon damage. That is a mistake in the tip. I have seen no addon damage. What it does is like they said it is its own turret with a small dmg plama attack at close range.

usually it takes out 2 of 5 mines that are flying at you... so it's not the uber defense but it takes a few of those annoying things out.... not sure if it is worth the slot or if +7,5 to phasers would be better in the long run...
