perks
  • Teleport Upgrade
  • Heat Firerate & Recoil
  • The P9000 Supernova is a very fast-firing sub-machine gun that uses laser cells. The weapon's fire rate decreases as heat increases, thus requiring the player to shoot in controlled bursts.

    The abbreviation for this weapon is 'P90.'

    Characteristics[]

    Advantages:

    • Very high base fire rate provides powerful burst damage
    • Gains small stat increases upon entering a new non-boss room
    • Extreme firerate at low heat and less recoil.
    • Cannot overheat as the firerate would come to a halt before the weapon could reach high heat

    Disadvantages:

    • High recoil during the first few seconds of firing
    • High deviation
    • Long eject and reload cycle
    • Low max ammo
    • Fire rate scales heavily with heat, slowing to a crawl even at moderate heat levels
    • Low overall damage per projectile; struggles against armored enemies

    Ammo[]

    • Pickup: 70
    • Laser.png Laser Ammunition
      • Laser Cell
    • COMPATIBLE AMMO
      • Lithium Cell

    Perks[]

    • Teleport Upgrade
      • The weapon comes with the Evolving Software, allowing it to gain upgrades teleporting to a new non-boss room; these upgrades are independent to those provided by upgrade kits or terminals, and appear to have no stacking limit. The weapon gains for each teleporter usage:
        • +5% Firerate
        • +2% Damage
        • -1.5 Recoil
        • -0.25 Deviation
    • Heat Firerate & Recoil
      • Unlike every other laser weapon, with higher heat the firerate decreases and deviation is less affected

    Notes/Tips[]

    • Starts at 0% heat, unlike most weapons which start at 10% heat
    • The Shock Impulse and Twin Link II items have short active durations, which complement the P9000's burst damage well, allowing large groups of enemies to be dealt with quickly and efficiently
    • Anything that can reduce heat generation, such as Powershot/Hyperfeed or Reload Vent attachment will help maintain the P9000's high fire rate.
    • The P9000 benefits the most from the Engineer's class talents, which grant 30% additional fire rate and 10% reduced heat generation for laser weapons.

    Trivia[]

    • The P9000 is based off of the FN P90, a PDW designed and manufactured by FN Herstal in Belgium, known for its futuristic appearance.
