Wilson's Notes

The Manticore Heavy Hwacha is a heavy weapon capable of launching barrages of rockets over a very short duration. Each rocket does light explosive and shatter damage. While the rockets fly far, the Hwacha's high jitter stat makes it more suitable as a method of area denial or scare tactics when used from medium range. Using Heavy Clip on this weapon will reduce the spread of the rockets, allowing for more a accurate and devastating volley at longer ranges.

Common Tactics Edit

The Manticore Heavy Hwacha can destroy every single component on a ship with one clip. A perfectly timed Hwacha barrage can destroy most ships with one clip into the unarmored hull.

This gun can be used very effectively on all ships with heavy gun mounts. It is usually accompanied by armor stripping guns like Whirlwind Light Gatling Gun or disable weapons like Dragon Tongue Light Flamethrower or Hellhound Heavy Twin Carronade (Galleon). Pairing up this gun with piercing weapons allows for quick kill times, while using extra disable weapons allows for continuing to hold control over the enemy in the weapons' long reload time. Disabling the enemy's guns and engines allows for controlling the enemy. With an added function to use Heavy Clip for more precise mid-range disabling possibility.

The long reload time of this gun makes wasted shots particularly devastating. Additionally it is very susceptible to disables, both because of its long reload time and because, like all heavy weapons, it has a large hitbox. While weak against Armor the sheer amount of DPC means that it will often find armor breaks, however, it relies on support guns to be an effective kill weapon.

Engineers on ships locked down by a Hwacha can time guns and engines rebuilds to immediately have them available after the Hwacha burst. This will provide around a full Hwacha reload time cycle of about 14 seconds to disable the gun, kill the ship or move into a better position.

Commonly Used Ammunition Edit

Burst Rounds Edit

  • Maximizes DPS and DPC, increases AoE shatter radius, increases AoE damage.
  • AoE radius increased to 8.25 meters, allowing for a greater area of effect to hit components. This effect is especially devastating on larger ships.
  • Rate of fire is reduced, however, due to its quick firing speed and long reload, it is negligible.

Heavy Clip Edit

  • Reduces projectile spread, making mid-range volleys more effective.
  • Decreases rate of fire to 6.66 bullets/s.
