The best way Iíve found to maintain high weapons power in a Beam boat is to cycle between two copies of Emergency Power to Weapons every 15 Seconds. You may also cycle between two copies of EPTS as well.
Here is how to do it:
Activate EPTS. This will put EPTW on a 15 second shared cool-down and your other copy of EPTS on a 30 sec cool-down. As soon as you can, hit EPTW. This will place your EPTS on a 15 second cool-down, but that does not matter because it just hit 15 seconds anyway. Now, rinse and repeat continually!
If you really want to get fancy, you can tie; Fire all Beam Weapons, Re-Distribute Shields, Both Copies of EPTS and both Copies of EPTW, all to your spacebar as a key-bind. In this way, you donít even have to really thing about whether or not you are activating those skills. You can just focus on activating BFAW.
