Thermal Vent is a special effect that has a chance of being applied to a weapon as a result of applying weapon modifications.

It is an experimental upgrade that increases heat dissipation when successfully striking a target, at the cost of increased heat generation when the beam does not connect with a target. It can be used to counter the increased heat generation of Overcharged, but it is also possible for Efficient Thermal Vent beams to vent more heat than they generate, reducing both Thermal Load on the weapon and the ship's own Heat level.

As Thermal Vent reduces the ship's own heat level it can cause the ships cockpit to ice over, similar to using a Heatsink Launcher.
