Your ship is split into two halves, with your weapon firing in an alternating fashion.
Each half generates its own shield effect
The two halves are connected by a lightning field, dealing 200 burn damage and igniting targets.
When hull falls down to 50% one half gets destroyed and you're stuck with -50% hull, shield and fire rate until it's rebuilt. (similar to constructs)
thanks to Advent#9163 on Nova drift's Discord for the artwork, giving me that idea.
