This is a base Defense auxiliary item. It lowers the damage output of enemies that enter a base.


Tech version:

A refinement of the already popular Benedict Industries Dampening Ray, the Version 2 is a cost effective solution to your threat reduction needs. The Benedict DR2 combines minor damage with a weakening effect that reduces damage caused by the target for a short duration.

Arcane version:

The beam from this crystal weakens enemies, reducing the damage they can cause for a short time.
