    Like i said in another topic, it's not just an echo cannon, but all equipment starting from xeno and above. Same as always. With some exceptions like altairian resistors.

    Your theory suit the flow of the story (game lore).

    I hope not, because sound doesn't work in space since there is no air for the waves to pass through. So either the weapons would all deal 0 damage and have no effect, or Kixeye would be creating something that blatantly makes no sense :P
      nor do explosions yet we have them, it was a joke anyway. its a game suspnesion of reality/physics applies

    not expecting a new damage type but since when VC is following rules. We have alien dmg, alien is related to a race. we have void weapon, this one is funny as void is void, how void can be a weapon type.

    Then if there is no air in space that means that if you shoot something it will continue to travel until it hit something, this mean we should not have maximum range on a projectile weapon.

    What I mean is this is a game not real life and in a game things don't always follow real life rule.

    Curious fact: cyclotron beams are compatible with this new faction too. This may either mean that it will receive it's own carrier too, and even possibly that sovereign will remain strictly beam-oriented flagship. Or the compatibility line will vanish when the time comes and this means nothing at all.

    Explosions could happen. Even one with fire could happen if you assume that the ships contain oxygen and when they are hit the explosion of fire is some of that oxygen being burned. Anyways, my guess is that the new damage type will be some something either dark green or brown. What it'll be called doesn't really matter, it's all the same stuff just to make us take more damage and make old tech less viable. It's also possible that there will be no new damage type and Kixeye simply changed "Projectile" to "Kinetic" to remove confusion about their other uses of the word in things like "Projectile Speed" or "Projectile Range". (That's unlikely though, because Kixeye don't usually change things purely to remove confusion and clarify game mechanics. Not anymore at least.
    Not quite true Daniel,

    They used to have differing names for Energy, Explosive & Projectile weapons, which lead to some confusion so they renamed them all to BEAM, MISSILE AND DRIVER.


    So there is precedence for name changes in weapons

    Erm...no they didn't. Look in your blueprints. Lots of Cannons, Rays, and Torpedoes. Only one that is consistent is Driver for Proje - I mean - Kinetic weapons. If you mean more recently, then that's also not true because just this season we've seen a Surge Beam and a Epsilon ECHO Cannon, which are both energy types. So you just further proved my point :P But so far it does seem like this change was done just for clarification purposes and the idea that it was because of a new damage type being added was just something that gained some traction because of something Cyrus said #blamecyrus
