|This article is about equipment from Everspace. For equipment from Everspace 2, see Equipment (ES2).|
Equipment can be crafted using resources, found in containers, dropped from destroyed enemies, or bought from traders and Service Stations. There are 6 types of equipment: primary weapons, secondary weapons, devices, consumables, mods, and Enhancements.
- Note: The Resources stated in the pages for each equipment type for crafting is without any level in the Crafting Costs Perk.
Starting Equipment[edit | edit source]
Each class of ship has three loadouts (A, B, and C) of equipment that are unlocked as the player progresses through sectors. See player ships for more information.
Additionally, the Bonus Equipment perk can be bought which allows choosing a few different options of random extra starting equipment.
Enhanced Equipment[edit | edit source]
Rarely, enhanced primary weapons and devices can be found, which are marked with a star and have random stat bonuses. When floating in space as loot, they are surrounded by a circular pattern similar to access keys. This is not to be confused with Enhancements, which are a different type of equipment and are explained below.
Eligible equipment can also be enhanced by Throng for viridian energy.
Primary Weapons[edit | edit source]
Primary weapons are the main damage dealer in the game, and there are a total of 24. Before they got their official names during development, all variants of the base-game weapons were named with numbers (Ex: Gatling II or Beam Laser II).
Beam Laser M3
Coil Gun T-1
Flak Cannon 5-5
Fusion Blaster M6-A
Pulse Laser MX
Pulse Laser KS
Scatter Gun 2880
Shock Rifle PRO
Thermo Gun X10
Secondary Weapons[edit | edit source]
Secondary weapons also do a lot of damage, but due to the fact that each one is a one time use, they are best used as only a compliment to the primary weapons, finishing off enemies or taking down capital ships faster, reducing potential damage taken. There are a total of 10 secondary weapons.
Seeker Missile Battery
Shield Breaker Missile
