Mechanics

  • The Void Prism's bullets are fired a few units from the player unlike most conventional lasers. The 5 gun mounts of the laser will be positioned in a circular pattern and rotate clockwise. Each of these 5 gun mounts will fire its respective elemental damage bullet towards the center, effectively creating a "vortex" of bullets which all converge at the center.
    • It should also be noted that each gun mount rotates at a different speed clockwise.
  • The bullets that the Void Prism fires also pierces through enemies.

Commentary

  • The short range of this weapon along with its bizarre firing pattern makes this weapon extremely difficult to use effectively.
  • Compared to the T10 Laser, Void Prism is able to churn out more bullets due to its 5 gun mounts firing at a faster rate. However, each bullet the weapon fires is significantly weaker than the bullets that the T10 Laser fires.
  • The laser's 5-element damage nature means that it is always moderately effective against any elemental enemy.
    • An elemental enemy would resist one element (-50% damage taken) and be weak against another element (+100% damage taken), effectively resulting in +50% damage taken.
    • It can be classified as a jack of all trades weapon, as it doesn't specialise in any element. Any other elemental laser will thus do better at it against its own respective elemental-weak enemies.
