Secondary weapons are upgrades that feature the "ATTACK:" header in their card text. They provide additional types of attack other than a ship's primary weapon that hit especially hard or disable the enemy.

Rules Edit

The attacker chooses to use a secondary weapon when declaring a target. To use a secondary weapon, the attacker must meet all requirements indicated in the card's text, and the desired target must be inside the attacker's firing arc and at the weapon range specified on the card. If all requirements are met, the attacker can declare that it is using the secondary weapon during the "Declare Target" step, and it rolls the number of attack dice indicated by the red attack value on the card during the "Roll Attack Dice" step.

  • Range combat bonuses do not apply during secondary weapon attacks.
  • Secondary weapons use the ship's primary firing arc unless the card (or another effect, e.g. Nera Dantels) specifies otherwise.
  • The "ATTACK (TARGET LOCK):" header indicates that the attacker must have a target lock on the defender. The attacker does not need to spend this target lock unless instructed by the Upgrade card.
  • The "ATTACK (FOCUS)" header indicates that the attacker must have a focus token. The attacker does not need to spend this focus token unless instructed by the Upgrade card.
