Cannons and turrets

Are cannons and turrets part of the projectile group too?

I saw a wiki that has projectile console for a cannon and turret build.

    No projectiles are torps and mines. Cannons and turrets are energy weapons.

    Depending on what you were looking at, the console might have other functions than just Projectile buffs. For instance the Console - Universal - Ordnance Accelerator also increases Phaser and Polaron damage, which would make it a solid choice on a cannon build using either of those energy types.

    There was a projectile only console listed at the sto-pidia (I know wikis shouldn't be trusted especially for video games)

    I know some consoles also boosts more than 1 thing,

    On the tooltip for Cannons and Turrets (and Beams) the damage class is listed as "Energy Damage" whereas Torpedoes and Mines are listed as "Kinetic Damage".

    Wait what? Unless the stuff is really new the wiki is fairly up to date with several people (dedicated players) trying to keep it that way.

    It was a energetic protomatter console that boosts kinetic damage in the "cannons" sections at the STO wiki. I think a youtuber somewhere said it too or I don't recall at the moment.

    The Energetic Protomatter Matrix infusers do come in flavors that boost specific energy types like phaser/Disruptors/Pol ect.. as well as a minor boost to projectile weapons...So..It should be listed as a console that "enhance damage" section on Any cannon page.

    But I think your saying those (the Kinetic Protomatter Matrix infusers) shouldn't be in the + All damage portion of the (or a Phaser cannon) page.

    But since there is a % boost to Directed Energy Damage on the Kinetic Variant..That would affect a Cannon.

    As far as "wikis" shouldn't be trusted..Eh..an error here or there shouldn't make it a not trusted source..We all play the game like you do so when you see something fix it or let someone know so it can remain as accurate as possible for other players.
