# 1 Polarized Disruptor Beam Color
02-25-2013, 02:12 AM
Hello,

Sorry if this has been answered before (I tired to find it via search and did not come up with any results). But I was wondering what color are the beams of the polarized disruptors?

thanks in advance!

Damage type is disruptor. So green.

Hello, I was playing over the weekend and got to thinking about the other hybrid energy types. Do they also have the same appearance/color as the type of damage they do? E.g., how phased polaron beams are purple like regular polaron beams.

Thanks again!

Yep. The only exception is the one mentioned by GrouchyOtaku, the Spiral-Wave 'ruppies (I think that's because we've seen Cardassian ships shooting yellow shots in TV episodes, so they break the colour rule for canon reasons).

It also applies on the ground weapons, a phased-tetryon rifle will fire blue, pol-dis pistol green etc.

Phased polaron are purple, but the animation, at least for the beams is different, a recolored phaser beam rather than the squiggly-line thing standard polarons shoot. Also, I believe the sound effects on the beam are different than standard polarons.

Also, Phased Tetryon is a little more teal than regular Tetryon. Romulan Plasma is supposed to be a little more green than regular Plasma, too.

In fact, the only hybrid weapons that don't get their own special fx are Plasma-Disruptors and Polarized Disruptors. As far as I know, all the others do.
