Description A glorious close range weapon that tears enemies apart with a barrage of projectiles.

Carronade is a close range weapon that fires a spread of 7 projectiles. With the shortest range out of any red slot item in the game, Carronade goes unmatched in close-combat and can be enhanced by talents, a slowing ship speed ability, and a slowing turret agility ability.

Before the 4.0 update, Carronade received a majority of its talents from Swift.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

The Carronade is best suited on a Speeder, or on other ship loadouts with an emphasis on close range. It can be used aggressively to quickly approach and eliminate targets who are out of position. Alternatively, it can be used to fend off other aggressive enemies.

Carronades are sometimes used on high-mark Shooter loadouts where a red slot can be sacrificed for enhanced close-combat capabilities. It is not recommended to try this on MK3 or lower Shooters, where each slot is vital to keeping up a steady stream of mid/long range damage.

Because each of its projectiles' damages are individually lowered by the enemy's defense points, the Carronade is significantly weaker against enemies with lots of defense points. Defenders are generally very resistant to Carronade fire. The best targets are Speeders and Fixers.

Also, this may not work on Speeders, for they may be able to dodge shots very quickly.
