The ATX laser battery is a capital ship weapon developed by the Terran Dominion for their elite battlecruisers. It was part of the ordnance tested at Davis's compound by the Defenders of Man during the Defenders of Man Insurgency. These batteries allowed battlecruisers to target multiple enemies at once up to four targets.[1]

Game Effect[]

ATX laser batteries are available as an upgrade to battlecruisers equipped with the special ordnance upgrade in Nova Covert Ops. Their damage is 8, range is 6, speed is 0.61 and they gain +1 upon upgrade.[1]

Han and Horner use ATX laser batteries by default on their Sovereign battlecruisers. Unlike their campaign counterpart, this can only attack one unit at a time.[2]
