You can shoot at gate from 8+km from the side but I don't like the low damage you do at that range. I fly an escort and I'm usually right up in there doing max damage. I don't blow up often, usually my fault for waiting too long. I found that if you stay low and really close to it you won't get hit by those new torpedo or whatever they're shooting since season 6 patch, only energy weapon which are much easier to tank. Those new torp have crit on me for aver 100k dmg, once 150k so better not to get hit by them. Just like cube that can't shoot torp at you when your on top or below them.
I stay out of range only if I'm on probe duty, to shoot at gate when there is no probe to shoot at.
I always see lots of ppl shooting at everything from far away and you don't get your max dps that way, cannon effective range is 2km and beam 1 km so the closer the faster you destroy whatever you're shooting at. And if someone don't believe what I just said its easy to verify. Shoot at the big transformer from extreme range and get closer slowly, you'll see your number go up as you get closer. That how my tac is usually top dps in most missions. Shooting from far away is wasted potential from your energy weapon
