General[edit | edit source]

The Archer Beam is an Energy weapon with extremely long range but is only available to destroyers.

It charges up and fires a golden beam, sustaining it for a long time before a brief cooldown.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Archer Beams appear thinner than Impulse Beams

Archer Beams are optimized for base combat. When boosted with Focused Optics V, the weapon exceeds the range of even Arc Missiles, allowing your destroyers to take out enemy defenses from afar.

Archer Beams also outrange most other FvF destroyers, forcing them to get closer in order to fire on your ships.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Archer Beams are incredibly heavy for an Energy weapon, this only gets worse when you equip Focused Optics, making Siege Drivers still a viable choice for base sniping, and Impulse Beams for fleet combat.

Archer Beams take a long time to charge up, making them powerless against incoming squadrons and agile ships that weave in and out of your narrow firing arc.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Archer Beam had the longest beam duration in the game until the Cyclotron Beam was released.
