Thermal Shards are energy manipulation devices developed to increase combat efficiency of machinery.
Mainly used in heavy weapons and power regulation systems, Thermal Shards absorb excess heat build up then convert and transfer excess energy back to essential systems.
The Shards immediately perform an emergency eject and vent should energy build up be too fast (Ghostbusters - The Video Game: Proton Pack). Venting releases negligible amounts of radiation. In both simulated and actual combat, the shards boost ranged weaponry firing rates by rough 75%. Even Yamato Guns can have their charge time cut in half by just a few well placed thermal shards.
- All mechanical units have Cooldown times decreased by 75%
- Special weapons have their Cooldown times decreased by 50%
