Flak weapons fire normally useless debris, not even fit to be called scrap, in a deadly salvo. They require no missiles, and fire multiple shots simultaneously that each deal standard damage to shields and hull, similar to laser bolts. They do not cause fires or hull breaches. All flak weapons are area of effect weapons. They are most effective at taking down shields to allow other weapons to get through, though are inaccurate when attempting to target a single room. Flak shots fly slower than lasers, making synchronization between flak and lasers somewhat tricky. Individual flak debris can be shot down by either type of defense drone. Flak weapons have a unique volley that allows them to take down shields quickly, as opposed to laser weapons (which fire one shot after the other). This does not give enemy shields adequate time to recharge making flak weapons very useful later in the game when enemy ships have several layers of shields. Flak weapons also fire small, harmless bits at the enemy with their normal shots. These are merely for visual effect and cause no damage of any kind. Flak weapons were introduced in Advanced Edition. It is of note that the target area for the Flak II is larger than that of the Flak I.
