Primary weapons are the main damage dealer of ships. Each equipped primary weapon has its own energy pool. Most specialize in either kinetic or energy damage, but some are more general-purpose.

Secondary Weapons[]

Secondary Weapons are single-use items (most stacking up to a certain amount) without any significant cooldown best used as a supplement to primary weapons. They can be restocked for credits at stations.
