Efficent Borg Killer
I am a science officer and I would like to know some tips to be a better borg killer for ground combat. I have pretty good equipment, including a Borg Medical Analyzer and all the science kits. Any and all tips will be apriciated, and if there is already a thread like this please refer me to it, THANKS!! :D

Get a (borg) modified weapon. The proc helps tons against heavy drones and such.

Get a melee weapon for the Elite Drones. Use snipers for others. :)

Immune buff? Never heard of it.

its one of those little buffs you get from Accolades. You must kill 1000 Borg Drones to get it

Here are some passives that would be good vs Borg. The anti-borg weapons are really good against them as well. Any shields or armor that have plasma resists would be a good idea as well. You could always get a Combat Log Parser, record a combat log when fighting the Borg to see what damage they are dealing out. Plus if they have any resists vs any energy weapon types. Though with the Season 4 Borg being adaptive, might be best if you or your group have different energy weapon types.

For science kits you could use

Assimilate This!
Defeat Borg (1,000)
"Liberated" title and power (+2% Damage against Borg (Ground))

Nanoprobe Immunity
Destroy Borg ships (200)
"Immune" title and power (+2% Damage against Borg (Space))

State of Mind and Matter
Receive Plasma damage with your captain (15,000)
"In a State" title and power (+2% Plasma Damage resistance (Ground))

Scorched Earth
Receive Plasma damage with your ship (500,000)
"Scorched" title and power (+2% Plasma Damage resistance (Space))

Combat Log Parser
The combat log is derived from the Champions Online combat log parser. It can be downloaded at Here is the direct link.

In the chat box type /combatlog 1 to start recording the log and /combatlog 0 to stop.
