- Burning Aftermath: When the charged plasma bolts make contact with a target, the heat from the bolt takes considerably longer to dissipate, causing a damage-over-time effect against enemy shielding and hull. The burning through shielding is less effective than traditional ion weaponry, but truly deals damage to enemy hulls.
- Rate of Fire: The Hellscreams are a dual cannon turret, effectively doubling the rate of fire of a normal plasma railgun.
- Shields: The Hellscream's plasma bolts aren't able to penetrate shields directly. They would have to burn through the shields before making contact with a ship's hull.
- Weapon Size: The Hellscream's size makes it unable to be deployed on ships smaller than 3000m.
The Hellscream plasma railgun is an experimental form of weaponry concept being employed by Zahori Denko. Based on the plasma railgun developed by the Czerka Corporation, the Hellscream has many upgrades in comparison to it's predecessor while still fulfilling the same role. The dual-headed turret fires in alternating fashion, unleashing a swift barrage of plasma enclose din magnetic fields. Much like it's predecessor, the Hellscream is capable of hitting targets at great distances and had the unique ability of burning through whatever the plasma bolts might come into contact with, shields and hull alike. This is a slow process, but it's very effective. Due to the size of the weapon and complexity of it, it's typically only deployed
