Thanks to everyone for input. Seems like most folks prefer beams, as you'd expect. Single cannon/turret sounds kinda fun to try, though. Will experiment and see.

My thanks to the KDF for confirming that all turrets is a bad idea.

Why the exception for DBBs? I assumed you don't mix cannons and beams because of needing the different tac boff skills...what's different with DBBs?

Really? 6 turrets on crf beats 3 beams on bo? (with NI or something on, of course.) That's an honest inquiry; like I said, nubcaek here.

Currently on an eng character, for the record, so skillset is strong on keeping power up rather than raw dakka.
