The cooldown tech claims to reduce the cooldown of loadouts by 1%. I tried testing this with every ship in the game and this is what I got.
**I’m looking at the most buggy and ridiculous tech in the entire game developers**
Well after clearing that out of the way. Here is my result of the testing.
**LOADOUTS THAT COOLDOWN WORKS WITH**
**COOLDOWN DOES NOT WORK WITH ANY LOADOUTS**
_Gift of VORP_
So basically, if your ability is not on that list. **Cooldown will not work**
_But instead of working, what cooldown will do is produce a graphical glitch that tricks you into thinking that your ability’s cooldown is over while it is not. This graphical glitch can drain your energy and the loadout won’t even activate, or it won’t even drain or do anything until the actual cooldown is finished_
I’m glad you’ve posted this, Master. This is very thorough. Far more thorough than my tests. Thank you.
I don’t know which forum the developers look at most, but it may be helpful to post on their G/S account:
I do think cooldown works for Dreadnaught : BFG as well.
Solo match with 10 cd techs equipped I could fire 1 extra bfg missile every 25seconds. It is noticable because I recorded both with fraps, then let both videos run at the same time next to each other.
Used 32 Cooldown Techs and here is what i can say after reaching Level 10+ ( nearly all CD Techs online )
Dread: Minigun working, nothing else anymore
Turbo Hawk: Kickstart working, Blades not
Jabber: Nothing works. But the Sharper Edges hits more often
Circe: Nothing works
Venture: Beam works, everything else not
IW: Rockets and Lasers works, shield and Claw not
Undu: Quantling works, all others not
Torpaz: Shards work, all others not
Update: **Hirudo and cooldown techs.** A lot of time was spent with 16 CD techs making sure this information is correct:
Skill 1: cooldown works, reduced by 16%
Skill 2: cooldown works, but only by 6%
Skill 3: cooldown reduced by 4% but it doesnt work! Insoulator does NOT make invulnerable, although the FX (yellow shiny) triggers without effect. Died 4x because of this, thinking that the shield would be up.
Skill 4: no application
