The L is most commonly found equipped with the powerful Pulsed Beam Emitter. However, it does not have the generator power to feed more than two of these weapons. When encountered, this ship can deal a serious amount of damage in a very short time, but will quickly run out of puff so isn't the most serious of threats. Also, it does not have any turrets, so players can exploit this weakness by launching missiles before it gets into firing range.


Until recently the L was the most powerful Xenon fighter developed; it is armed with multiple lasers, and powerful shields. These ships are often seen attacking passing ships trying to take shortcuts through their sectors. Like other Xenon ships, the L has been updated in the last few years.

Physical Characteristics[edit]


Dogfighting in the L requires careful management of weapons energy, but otherwise, standard tactics of point and shoot make this fighter effective enough to compete respectably in a battle.

The L is slow, but like all Xenon designs, it has versatile loadout options.




Like all Xenon craft below M6s, the L must be capped in order to be acquired for personal use.

Suggested Roles[edit]

The L is not a remarkable fighter to use due to its middling energy capacity and recharge rate, and the existence of the far superior LX makes the L obsolete in any role.
