Wilson's Notes

The Artemis is a slow firing, missile sling with a medium to long effective range. Its raw damage output deals medium hull damage (98 damage to hull), although its reduced rate of fire will often allow enemy crew to rebuild the armor before significant damage has been dealt to the enemy ship. The Artemis deals considerable damage to components in an AoE and is able to destroy most components in 1-2 shots, making this weapon very useful in disabling enemy ships from range.

The Artemis Light Rocket Launcher along with the Mercury Field Gun both share a unique property of projectile expansion.

Common Tactics Edit

The Artemis Light Rocket Launcher provides a ranged weapon for mainly disabling purposes. Although, it can be used to deplete small amounts of hull as well.

This gun can provide potentially life-saving disabling power on ships which rely heavily upon heavy guns as well as the ability to temporarily disable ships by destroying engines - allowing for highly maneuverable ships to gain a significant positional advantage over their opponents. The gun commonly finds a place on Junkers, Mobulas and Pyramidions. Its wide horizontal angle also makes the Artemis a viable option for side guns on most ships. It is commonly accompanied by Piercing weapons like Hades Light Cannon, Mercury Field Gun or Whirlwind Light Gatling Gun.

The Artemis may be considered difficult to aim at high speeds or during intense maneuvers due to its slow projectile speed. It also has a very limited upward arc making Artemis ships very vulnerable if attacked from higher altitudes.

Commonly Used Ammunition Edit

Burst Rounds Edit

  • Increases AoE to 3.75 meters.
  • Increases AoE damage by 10%, allows two shot full HP heavy engine (525 HP) with only burst damage, normal rounds can't that with two direct hit.
  • Very useful for disable as it allows for greater inaccuracy from the gunner whilst increasing the chance of hitting multiple components.

Lesmok Rounds Edit

  • Useful for obtaining greater range(up to 2267m) with this weapon as well as accuracy.
  • Clip size reduced to 3.
  • Situational ammunition choice, only for very long range (e.g. outsniping a Lumberjack Heavy Mortar).
