Subsystem targeting

Post by justinjah91 » Tue Oct 31, 2017 4:47 pm

So the weapons officer has the option to select a subsystem to target. Is it only missiles that do damage to these systems, or do turrets and main cannons also damage subsystems?

Subsystem Targeting is mainly for missiles, not including nukes. Hull damage from anything can result in random subsystem damage, though.

Ah ok, thank you! What about phase turrets? Is that also random?

Phase damage results in x4 extra damage to subsystems.

To clarify on randomness for non-missiles, it's a random choice of subsystem when enough damage bleeds through rather than random if it takes damage at all. Keep your shields strong and you'll be fine.
