The Kias Blaster is a 2x2 weapon room that was rewarded in the March 2018 Tournament to the Fleet, "Kias Elite". The Kias Blaster fires a volley of three lasers in quick succession while consuming a maximum of two power. Each individual laser fired in the volley does 0.3 system and crew damage and 0.15 shield damage. The blaster also needs to be refilled with Gas , just like the Plasma Phaser. Also, if you have the K Blaster you cannot get the Kias Blaster.
The Kias Blaster is essentially a much more powerful Bolter. It does more damage, needs more power, and it takes up the same amount of space. However, unlike the Bolter, the Kias Blaster is a pretty useful addition to late game gunships. Its two power and decent damage let it do much more than the Bolter could attack wise. Armor is not essential, but can be very beneficial if space is available. Make sure to refill the Kias Blaster after every fight aswell.
When To Use
The Kias Blaster is a pretty good support weapon for late game gunship hulls. If you need some more firepower, this room can definitely help you in that regard. However, if you can't find space or a use for this room, it is usually not worth forcing into your build.
There really isn't any magic AI for the Kias Blaster, just make sure it targets the same room all your other weapon rooms target. Also, the Kias Blaster is categorized as a "Laser Room" in AI coding.
The Kias Blaster is buffed with the Weapon stat on crew. The formula used with this stat can be found here.
