The Light Weapons Control adds a 10% improvement to the overall accuracy of the weapons on a vehicle, allowing better target acquisition of stationary targets. It is the smaller of the weapon controls, requiring a 1 × 1 option slot. The Hoverbike has a slot specifically for this module. It is also an excellent item to fill in any gaps in the option slots if there are any.

The abilities of the weapon control modules can be stacked, however every additional module will have its accuracy reduced incrementally more for every module that is installed. The Nth module will have its power divided by N. This is known as a Harmonic Series.

For example:

  • 1st module: 10% (10% / 1)
  • 2nd module: 5% (10% / 2) with both modules adding 15% accuracy to the vehicle
  • 3rd module: 3.33% (10% / 3) with all three modules adding 18% (18.33% rounded down) accuracy to the vehicle
  • 4th module: 2.5% (10% / 4) with all four module adding 20% (20.83% rounded down) accuracy to the vehicle

The fractions are rounded down to an integer. If mixing weapon control sizes, the larger sizes are considered first in the formula.

In short, the more modules of the same type that are installed beyond the first 2 reduce the overall effectiveness of the accuracy boost.
