The Romulan Hyper Plasma Torpedo Launcher has too simple of a counter to really make it super effective anywhere outside of PvE. You can nullify most of it's damage by simply hitting a HE1. The rest is all just kinetic damage, and low amounts at that. The only real danger I see from this weapon in PvP is the lag it will generate and the fact it distracts weapons in BFAW.

Other than that, it's simply too weak on its own to be a true threat.

However I can see this combining with other rather nasty abilities to become a problem, but again, it's too easily countered by HE of any level.

So I only see this being viable as a burn build in PvE, like you originally stated.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Tired of Wasting EC and Time trying to get Superior Romulan Operative BOffs? Here's a cheap and easy way to get them, with an almost 100% chance of success.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder.
