Orbital bombardment targeter

An ancient targeting apparatus for an orbital bombardment system. This unit designates a target and transmits the coordinates to a network of satellites, which then bombard the target area with kinetic impactors. This unit has been reprogrammed to accept unauthorized users, but once it is used, the network will detect the incursion and cut off the link permanently.

The Orbital bombardment targeter is a powerful single-use utility artifact added in Beta 18.

It requires manual targeting, and has a 3 second activation time. Once activated, a targeting laser will shoot down from above and a series of approximately 30 explosions, one every 18 ticks (0.3 secs), will rock the ground near it for a 540 ticks (9 secs), dealing massive damage. The targeting radius is approximately 20 tiles, while each individual explosion's radius is 7 tiles and deals 50 bomb-type damage.

It has a targeting range of 45 tiles and requires a line of sight from the user to the target (it cannot target through walls).

It takes up the utility slot of the body, being able to be carried with a weapon.
