Weapon Fragments

Although the alien weapon fragments provide a limited glimpse into the systems utilized in their equipment, we've seen enough to confirm my worst suspicions about their technology... that it is vastly superior to our own. However, I have been encouraged by the rapid developments the research team has made in studying the damaged circuitry and electronics we recovered. Our initial efforts have already yielded a successful outcome. The new integrated sighting module created for our weaponry was heavily influenced by the aliens' own targeting system.

Grey Market Description

Based on our experience in the field, it seems the alien weaponry is designed to self-destruct when the operator dies. These fragments are all that we've managed to recover from the remains.

Notes

  • Weapon Fragments can be retrieved from the battlefield by killing aliens but use of explosives will destroy any fragments.
  • Weapons research requires large amounts of fragments, which can create bottlenecks for your scientific research.
  • Research completion allows production of new item = S.C.O.P.E.
