The Plasma Discharger is a 3x2 weapon room unlocked at level seven. The Plasma Discharger deals extra damage to Crew and requires ammo to fire. The Plasma Discharger's ammo is used everytime the Plasma Discharger fires and can be refilled instantly with Gas outside of battles.
The Plasma Discharger can deal significant Crew Damage without sacrificing other damage components. Because of this, the Plasma Discharger can also be used to damage rooms. In addition, make sure to refill its ammo after every fight.
When To Use
The Plasma Discharger is a must have for gunships. That's not to say it doesn't serve a purpose for other ships though. Many players use the Plasma Discharger for extra DPS, regardless if they're a gunship or not. Additionally, some players use the Plasma Discharger just to replace their Bolters at ship level 7.
AI for rooms like the Plasma Discharger is relatively straightforward. As long as the Plasma Discharger's AI is targeting the same rooms in conjunction with the other weapons on a player’s ship, it should be fine.
