A frag-cannon with tighter spread pattern to deliver its damage at a greater range.
— In-Game Description
The Pacifier Frag-Cannon is a large Fragment Cannon with tighter spread and longer range but at the cost of dealing less damage per shot. This weapon type is power-specific for Zachary Hudson supporters.
This weapon is available only for a class 3 fixed hardpoint. Like the Fragment Cannon, it can rapidly fire three shots of 12 projectiles before having to reload.
Compared to the Class 3 fixed Fragment Cannon, it is almost identical but has 150% projectile speed, 150% maximum range, and a jitter of 1.7 degrees compared to 5.0 degrees; damage also does not drop off until the furthest edge of its maximum range. These attributes together make it far more likely to cause more damage at further ranges. If the Fragment Cannon is a futuristic shotgun, then the Pacifier is a shotgun with a choke.
For this increased range it sacrifices damage per each projectile, and so does 87% of the full theoretical DPS of the equivalent fragment cannon. This makes it comparatively poorer at the point blank ranges preferred by many pilots using fragment cannons. It also cannot be gimballed, potentially a drawback for a class 3 weapon hardpoint which is usually found on bigger, less nimble ships.
