Corrosive Shell is an Experimental Effect that can be applied to a weapon through Engineering. It consists of experimental rounds that temporarily weaken Armour Hardness and increase all damage taken, at the cost of a 20% reduction in ammo capacity. While the effect is active, incoming damage from all sources is increased by 25%, and all attacks receive a +20 bonus to their armour piercing value.
The effects of Corrosive Shell do not stack on a single target, and therefore it is most efficient and cost-effective to only apply it to one weapon per ship. Furthermore, the type and size of the chosen weapon does not alter how the effect is applied or its duration.
This effect is available for the following weapons:
