I tried using wide beam pistols on all my BOffs, I don't think I've ever had so few exposes, the problem seems to be that the attack range on a pistol is ~30m and the attack range on the wide beam is ~15m, which means that the officers never really go in good range to use the special attack. I had a few very close quarter encounters on space ship missions where the wide beams gave a good result, but for any big area combat, especially planets, the wide beams was just awful as an expose weapon.

I'm going back to using a full auto assault, in the hopes that every hit has a chance of triggering an expose.
