How to play
You are the weapons officer onboard the TAF Warsaw, a state of the art gunship orbiting a remote Human starbase. You cannot control the gunship itself, only aim it's weapon systems.
The laser cannon rapid fires a simple energy beam directly at your target. It is very easy to aim but does the least damage. Upgrade this weapon quickly to increase its effectiveness.
* Higher laser upgrades use more energy so you may need to upgrade your generator as well to keep up with the energy demand.
The vulcan is a hi-speed minigun that fires small projectiles at approximately 1000 rounds per minute. The weapon has the shortest range, but does heavy damage. It is also difficult to aim as you need to "lead" your target to allow the projectiles enough time to cover the distance.
The Mass Driver is a powerful long range artillery shell that causes heavy damage. It is a slow moving projectile so you will need to "lead" your target to aim effectively. This weapon is best used against capital ships, but expert gunners will find it effective against smaller targets as well.
Missiles destroy most small ships with one hit and are great at tracking targets at long distance. Tracking will not work reliably at shorter distances.
Before a missile can track it needs to lock-on to a target. Wait for the blue "LOCKED" text to appear before firing. After a shot the missile launcher needs to reload before you can fire again. You have unlimited missiles.
