What is (are) your favorite weapon(s) and why?

Postby Luigi9990 » Sun Nov 25, 2012 12:11 am

I saw a question like this except with different ships, but I thought I'd make a thread about weapons.

Personally, my favorite weapons are hull lasers, because they fire enough shots in a short amount of time to make it worth it. A hull laser 1 + hull laser 2 + any non beam/bomb weapon is pretty powerful.

What weapons do you guys like?

Ion Blast MKII, simply because it makes any other beam/laser weapon paired with it MUCH more potent

I really like the burst laser mk III. i know it takes 4 power and has a long recharge time, but only taking up one weapon slot is a huge help, especially on ships like the engi or stealth ship that only have three weapon slots. 5 shots in a row coming from one weapon is amazing, and can take down all shields. More weapons i like are the crystal weapons. Yes, they can be shot down by any kind of defense drone and they have a longer recharge time than most standard weapons, but all crystal weapons can pierce one layer o shields!!!!

I recently had a run with dual Burst laser Mk III. Pretty powerful, but unfortunately I did not have enough defense to survive the last boss :)

Overall I like Breech Bomb MK II a lot, Fire Bomb a close second. Makes boarding fun, and makes disabling systems easy.

But it is hard to have a favorite really, so many interesting weapons. Glaive Beam do good things as well.

Fire beam, for me. Not the most potent or destructive, but I really enjoy lighting enemy ships on fire. Throw some ions or burst-laser in for flavor, and let's fire up the barbecue! :twisted:

Yeah, fire weapons are the most fun, especially in compare to effective, but very very boring lasers.

BL2 (sweet spot between # of shots and power consumption), followed by fire bomb (useful from the start against even shielded ships) and hull laser (if I can't get burst lasers, I'll probably be able to pick up a couple of hull lasers, and they're nice for finishing off the flagship once its weapons are down).
