Swarm is the codename of the weaponised form of the tiny but lethally poisonous biting insects native to HIP 118311. Manipulated by a control fluid, the weapons can be targeted onto enemy positions using a remote electromagnetic beam, then unleashed to wreak chaos and death on enemy ranks. The weapon’s trademark buzzing quickly made it a favourite with crime syndicates, favoured for intimidation and enforcement purposes. Banned in most jurusdictions.
— In-Game Description
HIP 118311 Swarm is available for the first time in the HIP 118311 system, after a civil war overthrew the Gold Bridge Holdings who had banned them. HIP 118311 Swarm arrived on the market when the HIP 118311 Posse took control of the station Lubbock Market.
