A dual-mount of the Light Needler with a heavier base, this advanced weapon system is capable of overwhelming shield projectors very quickly.
The Heavy Needler is an advanced weapon that fires 15mm flechette rounds. An improvement upon the Light Needler, it features better feed and cooling systems, which enable even greater fire rates. Projectiles are identical to the light version, 15mm caseless ammunition tungsten-jacketed flechettes.
The most expensive medium ballistic weapon in the game, the Heavy Needler is still a good anti-shield weapon, but it may be preferable to mount a Light Needler instead.
The Heavy Needler has significantly higher DPS than the Hypervelocity Driver, greater accuracy than the Heavy Autocannon, and more flux efficiency and a faster turn rate than either. Its burst lets it front-load damage, and its fast projectiles are much harder to evade than those of its medium kinetic peers.
