Wilson's Notes

A high fire-rate medium ranged, fireworks launcher. The Banshee Light Rocket Carousel has no projectile drop and mildly poor accuracy, which makes it useful as a deterrent, support, or as a close-range punisher in a similar fashion to the Scylla Double-Barreled Mortar.

A special property of this weapon is that hits have a high chance to light systems on fire. Harassing and damaging an opponent go hand in hand with this gun.

Common Tactics Edit

The Banshee Light Rocket Carousel is only a moderate kill weapon but it puts a lot of pressure on engineers with its high ignition chance and high rate of fires per second.

It is usually paired up with Piercing weapons like the Whirlwind Light Gatling Gun or the Hades Light Cannon and can be found on different ship types as a kill/harass weapon thanks to the wide horizontal gun arc (especially useful for side mounts). The Banshee is decently effective against balloons due to having Fire as its secondary damage type (not to mention fire stacks originating from its high ignition chance).

Apart from fire stacks the Banshee doesn't have much impact on chemsprayed ships if not supported by other guns.

However, while it is not more effective than the other kill weapons at hull impact, providing an armor break did not occur - the Banshee will have a greater effect than other kill weapons on enemy ships due to its all-around mediocre stats and jack of all trades ability.

Commonly Used Ammunition Edit

Greased Rounds Edit

  • Maximized DPS.
  • Increases clip size to 10.

Heavy Clip Edit

  • More accurate long range shots due to reduced jitter.
  • Clip size reduced to 6.

Burst Rounds Edit

  • Maximized DPC.
  • Does not include range reduction like with Greased.

However, usage of this ammo type is highly situational due to slow ROF impacting the time needed to empty a full clip before general armor rebuilds. It is especially effective against a Galleon, with the Galleon's high armor stat, rebuilding it takes long enough for a full burst clip of banshee to empty - Making it effective versus a Galleon opponent.
