Ion bomb or Artemis?

I’m in stage 7 and picked up an ion bomb from a victory. It’s easy mode, cause I haven’t beaten the game yet. So it’s probably not a terribly important decision.

But my weapon load out is currently blast laser 2 flak 1 halberd beam and Artemis. 8 weapon power 8 shields 5 engines 3 drones (shield drone and Defense Drone 2) 3 cloaking.

I have drone recovery arm and stealth attack augments.

Since I’m still really new, and I’m scared to experiment, can you guys help explain to me which weapon is better for my ship? I’m running Kestrel A.

Ion Bomb by far. Artemis uses up Missiles for 2 damage with a small chance to start fires. Not a very potent weapon
Ion Bomb can take down most systems in one shot for 1 missile which then opens the ship up for a barrage by your other weapons.

Sure it's got a high charge time, but Artemis damage can be repaired. Ion damage can only be removed over time.

I think I'd stick with the Artemis. It's fast-firing, so you can damage enemy weapons without having to wait for the Halberd Beam.
