Default Doomsday Weapons

I believe I have briefly mentioned Doomsday weapons before but they are so much fun I thought I would devote an entire blog post to them. So what is a Doomsday Weapon? Well it's basically a weapon so big and nasty that it really might be the end of the world. Luckily there is usually more than one inhabited world.

So how do they work? You use them just like any normal weapon, except they are completely uncontrollable once launched. They will do a massive amount of damage to anyone that is too close. That includes your enemies, your allies, and even your own ship. Everything in a Doomsday Weapon's path is going to be destroyed. You need to be really careful when you let one of these loose.

This sounds way too powerful doesn't it? Well unlike a normal weapon, you can only use a Doomsday Weapon once, they are really rare, and they are extremely expensive if you can find one to buy. You're probably going to want to wait for the right opportunity to use them or when frankly you are really desperate. Oh, and what about all of those empires that are fighting each other for the galaxy? They tend to be quite fearful of those that use Doomsday Weapons, so don't expect many friends afterwards.

However, the most important part is that they are insanely fun to wield. When the Fringe treat their citizens like cattle, get pissed at you when you don't help quell the resulting revolution, and then declare war on you, there's nothing better than wiping out an entire Fringe fleet in a few seconds with your handy Armageddon Device.

That's pretty awesome. I can't think of any game that's done this before...

Right now they can't, but I'm not sure it will stay like that or not.
