Seems so, but in some builds and situations they can really help you. For instance you told me about pugs. Well, having it can be really useful when your team needs a bit of debuff. Then the beam array itself is really useful on huge targets: I can fight with both it and my front cannons and if I have aux at 100 (let's say 100) and weapons at more or less 50, a beam will undoubtly do more DPS than a turret in the same situation.

well, depends about your playstyle. For instance, I love tanking it from the beginning to the end, leaving my other teammates to the histerical spacebar pressing , but I often take it alone while the other 4 get the gate if maybe a bad-timed spread agroes it, so I really need some more aux power to tank it.

that could be a little problem. Fortunately, I Always kill it in a minute. Just one. More or less No doubt you can too, though, for what I've read you're a serious person.

hehe. You're so right
