Secondary Weapons Systems

--------------------=< Secondary Weapons Systems >=----------------------

Some weapons can have a secondary weapon system installed.  This allows
another attack and can cause significant damage to the target.    

There are several types of secondary weapons.  They can either be
installed by Inventors or items such as installation kits.

Secondary Weapon           Ammo         Weapon Types
--------------          --------        -------------
Grenade Launcher        grenade         Blasters & Ranged Weapons
Rocket Launcher         rocket          Blasters & Ranged Weapons
Flamethrower            fuel            Blasters & Ranged Weapons
Static Discharge        static cell     Melee & Dagger Weapons
Static Field            static cell     Melee & Dagger Weapons
Ion Cannon              ion cell        Blaster & Ranged Weapons
Bayonet                 none            Blaster & Ranged Weapons

Since recoil from these systems can be severe, they work best when used
on a two-handed weapon. They can be installed on a one-handed weapon, but
firing accuracy will be severely affected.  They cannot be installed on
a holdable weapon.

There are also many types of ammo for Armor Systems that can be installed,
for those types and information, type help Armor Systems Ammo.

To put additional ammunition into the weapons system use: reload <weapon>

Reload

------------------------------=< Reload >=-------------------------------

Usage: reload <weapon>
reload jetpack
reload armor
rearm <ship>

The reload command reloads secondary weapon systems installed on a
weapon, and the rearm command reloads ammunition based ship special
systems.  (i.e. rocket launchers, proton torpedo launchers, etc)

On the reload command, the first item in your inventory MUST be the
ammunition you want to reload with. If you have more ammunition
than space available in your clip, any extra will remain in your 
inventory.

Some ammunition will load in game, while others must be constructed
by an Inventor or Space Engineer, or procured by an Arms Dealer.

NOTE: Re-arming your equipment is a time-consuming process and
      cannot be done in the heat of battle!
