Phased polaron beams are standard weapons on Dominion warships. Their performance is comparable to that of phasers or disruptors of similar size, but phased polaron beams easily penetrated Federation shields during their first combat encounters.

Smaller versions are available for infantry use. These weapons apparently have an anti-coagulant effect on humanoids, requiring special treatment of the wounds they cause to keep the victims from bleeding to death.
