Photon Swarm is a weapon introduced in Ultimate Omelette.

Strategy

It fires extremely high-intensity interweaving swarms of photons capable of covering a broad area. When supercharged, swarms will glow red and provide a boost to firepower. It's hard to control. Until ⚡5, the automatic firerate is slower than the manual one, so to increase damage in these cases, fire the weapon manually.

It's available from Chapter 4.

In Universe, it's unlocked from Tier ?.

Pros

  • Decent manual firerate.
  • Decent focused damage.
  • Low overheat with automatic fire at low power levels.

Cons

  • Slow automatic firerate at lower power levels.
  • Somewhat weak projectiles.
  • Produces a lot of heat with automatic fire at higher power levels.
  • Weighs a lot.

It's a member of the Nuclear group, so it has its weaknesses and strengths.
