This week's update introduces a new weapon: the battery cannon. The battery cannon is an adjustable weapon that functions similarly to a flak or quad cannon with a handful of differences. The battery cannon has lower firepower cost, massively reduced size, and medium range (275m). Unlike its larger counterparts, it should be easy to slot into a ship without reserving a massive chunk of space. The battery cannon is available without any research requirements since its small scale will likely make it an ideal adjustable on lighter ships.
The stockpile UI also gets rounded out this update with descriptions for every resource. The descriptions give a basic breakdown of the resource's function and any unique ways to acquire it so new players can better know what they are looking for.
