Tyken's Rift is not universally useful. At all.

Spread AND High Yield takes away from your damage output, which means that even a less-than-half decent healer will laugh at you.

Scatter AND Rapid Fire takes away from your damage output even further, which means that even a Tac flying a cruiser will be laughing at your DPS as he heals it.

PvP isn't about being universally useful... If you're "universally useful", you're SEVERELY lacking in what your team expects of you to succeed.

Speccing for 1v1s is stupid to begin with.

I can counter that build with... well... anything. It isn't "good" at anything. It's trying to do too many different things, stopping it from being a true threat, specializing in nothing.

Because he is an escort, arguably among the squishiest, he would die against anyone, flying any ship, without the world's most severe cases of cerebral palzy and down syndrome combined.

At least, without having the raw power to make up for it.

PvP isn't about how many different things YOU can do.

It's about how well you can make what YOU are EXPECTED to do work WITH your allies.

Your allies need to be able to count on you. I wouldn't waste my time counting on this, just looking at it screams that it wouldn't work in a reliable team and would just be leeching from the rest of us.

If I found myself with an Escort like this in my team, I'd already count the match as fighting down a man, 4 vs 5.

Edit: Besides... the OP requested a build to maximize damage... if you still argue this build does it, I lol.
