The rocket-powered Harpoon is one of the oldest, and most effective weapons used among the space-faring races. It is fired into the side of an enemy ship, embedding itself in the hull, and explodes doing serious damage. Doubly useful, a Harpoon Gun can also fire a Harpoon with a cable attached. These Harpoons are used to grapple onto other ships during battle. Grappled ships can be prevented from sailing ouf of danger or can even be boarded!
Pros: Allows boarding and capture of enemy ships.
Cons: Very low speed, short range, very slow rate of fire. Cannot be fired again until a grappled ship is released, and the Harpoon reeled back into position.
