so, a special weapon, or any weapon really with no acc mods is nearly useless right now without a really strong tractor beam or something to hold opponents still so they have a defense penalty. any one who is smart enough to max evasion and fly fast enough to max out their evasion score at all times has literally twice the survivability of someone who doesn't.
Well you dont have to retire your old beams just get a new ship i know that the new oddisy class has a hidden buff on it if you will it esentualy the more you shoot at something the more accurate you get this is mentioned in stoked 115 i beleve
