This guide aims to indulge Starfield players in the numerous options of weapon ship modules. With many options available, understanding each weapon type’s specific advantages and drawbacks is critical for victory. From lasers that decimate shields to electromagnetic weapons designed to disable a ship’s systems, this guide delves into the specifics to help you make an informed decision.

All Different Types of Ship Weapon Modules

Weapon TypeCharacteristics
Laser (LAS)Primarily effective against a ship’s shield; high damage output to shields.
Ballistic (BAL)Skews toward damaging a ship’s hull or health; less effective on shields.
Missile (MSL)Requires target lock and has a slow fire rate; deals substantial damage to both shields and hull.
Particle Beam (PAR)A versatile option with balanced capabilities against both shields and hull.
Electromagnetic (EM)Focuses on crippling a ship’s systems rather than causing physical damage.

Best Weapon Types for Enemy Ship Destruction

If you’re the kind of captain whose primary objective is to reduce enemy ships to cosmic debris, you’ll want to focus on laser, ballistic, missile, or particle beam weaponry. These are the juggernauts of hull and shield damage. Each type, however, comes with its own range and fire rate specifications.

  • Laser (LAS): These weapons are your go-to for chipping away enemy shields. They generally offer a higher rate of fire and are most effective at depleting shields, but don’t expect them to do wonders against a ship’s hull.
  • Ballistic (BAL): Ballistic weapons are your hull busters. While they may not be the best for taking down shields, they are incredibly effective at damaging the ship’s structural integrity.
  • Missile (MSL): Missiles bring the best of both worlds, capable of causing considerable damage to both shields and hull. The caveat? You’ll need to lock onto your target first, and these weapons tend to have a slower rate of fire.
  • Particle Beam (PAR): Think of particle beams as the jack-of-all-trades in your space armory. They offer a balanced approach, capable of dealing reasonable damage to shields and hulls without excelling in any particular area.

Best Weapon Types for Enemy Ship Incapacitation

If you’re more interested in tactical maneuvers and prefer incapacitating ships rather than destroying them outrightperhaps to board them for intelligence or other missionselectromagnetic (EM) weapons are your best bet. These unique devices don’t excel in causing physical damage; instead, they specialize in disabling a target ship’s systems, rendering them vulnerable to boarding and commandeering if you disable the engines.
