…The gift of death is most often given by those who have mastered the art of patience… – in-game description



Introduction

The Arbalest is a light energy weapon.

Strategy

This long ranged energy weapon can bypass built-in or mounted Ancile shields.

The Arbalest is basically the light version of the Trebuchet and Ballista, due to damage type, the range (1100 meters), and that it does more damage when fully charged. It requires 13 seconds for a full charge for maximum damage in one shot, but only 1 second if continuously fired for a significantly less damaging shot.

It is also comparable to the Gekko, in terms of damage type and range, but with different firing mechanics. The Arbalest having higher burst DPS when fully charged, but the Gekko having higher sustained DPS.

Mounting Options

Good options for mounting this weapon could be to pair it with Trebuchets. A Natasha, with 2 Arbalests, paired with 2 Trebuchets, makes for a solid low budget sniper. A Gl. Patton, with 4 of these could replace the 4 Gekko version for more burst damage. Lastly, a Jesse, with quad Arbalests, could be used instead of the Gl. Patton, as the reload time of the weapon is almost identical to the Quick Draw ability's cooldown.

Trivia

  • The Arbalest is basically a light version of the Trebuchet.
  • An arbalest is a crossbow with a special mechanism for drawing back and releasing the string.
  • The barrel of the Arbalest glows blue when fully charged, similar to the Trebuchet (which glows yellow/gold) and Balista (which glows green). However, it is much fainter.
