The Dual Bolt Spray attack that kills the entire away team on Advanced and Elite settings has been broke since it went live on April 30th, 2010. Yep. That'll be a year next week. So it's not just PvP.

Ok, I do want to ask people a question though. I have limited PvP experience in STO, so if I sound like a n00b asking stupid questions, it's because I am. Is BFAW really all that over powered? Aren't there ways in game right now to counter it? Like:

Aceton Field - I would think that a 50% decrease in damage would be pretty good mitigation. In fact, don't these stack?
Feedback Pulse - if he's hitting a bunch of people wouldn't getting hit by this from multiple targets be a real problem?
Mask Energy Signature - or would a BFAW boat still be able to hit you as long as he aims at someone else?
Reverse Shield Polarity - survive the attack long enough to counter strike.
Scramble Sensors - and then watch him shoot his teammates!
Target Weapon Subsystems - wouldn't shutting his weapons off stop BFAW?
