General[edit | edit source]

The Binary Torpedo is an Explosive Weapon that fires twin piercing torpedoes in a manner similar to the Nova Missile.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Binary Torpedo's long range and large AoE radius allows it to barrage enemy ships from afar. It also has the ability to pierce targets and cause multiple explosions, thus making it even more lethal against grouped targets.

When combined with specials like Volatile Fuel or Anthracite Munition, it becomes really hard to dodge, and the increased AoE radius allows it to completely obliterate large groups of enemy ships that cluster around each other. When the two specials are used in tandem, the torpedoes become impossible to dodge and the AoE can easily hit multiple ships at once.

Compared to the Nova Missile, the Binary Torpedo has a slightly lower minimum range.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

There is a noticeable amount of spread in between the 2 torpedoes it launches with each volley, ships can take advantage of this and hide within the space of both missiles, allowing them to close in on the enemy ship with this weapon and get in firing range. The spread is wide enough to allow a single ship to pass through.

The minimum range of this weapon is still quite large, enabling enemies to exploit it by remaining within.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Binary Torpedo was originally exclusive to the Pharmakon, which is not intended. It has been unlocked to other T7 factions, the Altairians and Umbra, in the late February 2019 update.
  • The Binary Torpedo is the first Explosive weapon utilized by the Pharmakon.
  • The Binary Torpedo is essentially a Nova Missile with the ability to pierce instead.
