|— Fan-made Description|
The Altairian Explosive Barrel is an Altairian Module found in Altairian Fortresses. it seems to supply power to the Altairian Defenses and modules stationed within.
This module, besides the Altairian Citadel, is the only one to have massive collateral damage.
It is advisable to target these modules first in a base hit as they will deal massive damage to the surrounding structures. Taking the large version out will greatly drop the health of surrounding turrets, allowing you to easily finish them off and thus limit the damage you take.
- The Altairian Explosive Barrel is the analogue to the Alien Energy Capacitor, with similar functions.
