on a hybrid charges, it says capicitor need bonus is -50%
does it mean i will use more or less capicitor?

i am a bit confused...because the word bonus = positive number?
but here they give a negative?

Welcome to the world of EVE's oddly worded item descriptions.

In this case it is a penalty(a negative bonus), meaning your guns use 50% more cap when using that ammo... I thinkEmbarassed

Iirc if it's listed as a 'bonus' it's a good thing, i.e. it will require 50% less cap. If it was listed as a penalty it would use 50% more.

Exactly not this. Lead charges make your guns use 50% less cap, which is a bonus.

LOL thanks for the clarification. I guess this is either an example of the cryptic nature of the descriptions being confusing even to 4 year vets, or simply that I am incompetent...Embarassed

I think looking at the info on the turret on the fitting page with and without ammo will answer the question.

It is confusing.

Capacitor Need Bonus: -50%
GOOD THING

Range Bonus: -50%
BAD THING

You gotta read the text. Minuses can be a bonus and positives can be a penalty and vice-versa.
