Oh also spheres have torps too, which you kinetic resist helps with too.
Uh... yeah, although to be honest I expect the respawn time would mitigate any advantage of kamikaze hugging a cube. They tend to pop quick with conventional DPS when it's on tap anyhow, and with a Garumba, it's deffinitely on tap. I suppose the non-cube kinetic damage would still make neutronium a safe bet though. I use neutronium anyhow since I'm not a fan of hot-swapping armour, it's rare you'll face such an energy specific threat.
