Weapon Categories and Starship Weapons

Postby ChalkLine » Sat Aug 10, 2019 10:26 pm

This is driving me nuts.
I know I've seen this somewhere. If you agree with it or not I've seen that pulse lasers are considered 'category four' weapons in Mongoose 2 rules. I'm absolutely sure I've seen particle weapons referred to them as such but I can't find the reference.
I've had no luck using the 'find' function, am I going mad?

Do you mean the Black Market categories in CSC (p5)?

According to Traveller Companion p. 136 pulse lasers are category 3. Torpedoes, particle beam, plasma, and fusion spaceship weapons are Category 4. Category 5 ship mounted weapons are Meson and Ortillery.
