Cannon Damage Sigma is a starship upgrade.


Cannon Damage Sigma is the first-level weapons technology upgrade for the starship Photon Cannon.


The Cannon Damage upgrades appear to have no impact on rate of fire. The description appears to be incorrect, and may be an accidental inclusion of text data from the Accelerated Fire Sigma panel. Most likely, this does what the title says it does; increase the per shot damage output.


The Cannon Damage upgrade increases the damage of the Photon Cannon.

In-Game Description[]
