AoE - abreviation of Area of Effect

Meaning weapon types that do damage to a target area, instead of a target specifically.

In Neocron all weapon types offer an AoE version except Rifles. The area damage or Splash damage as sometimes called allows you to hit several mobs at the same time increasing your rate of XP gain.

Examples include firespell modules, Rocket launchers and Rocket Drones.

Whilst these prove advantageous to a sole PvE'r the AoE weapon range is fairly limited in the realm of PvP due to it's non-direct hit capability and in team PvE due to the unpredictable damage direction, which could unfortunately kill one of your team.
