# 1 Escort weapons loadout
02-03-2010, 08:22 AM
I just made Lt Comm and now have my first escort ship.

What is a good weapons loadout to use?

And what is the deal with weapons interfering with each other, and not always being able to fire when they refresh?

I have two phaser arrays Mk IV which are rare (Thanks PvP) a Quantum Torpedo Launcher MK IV with 20% severity. Thats just for the front. The Rear is a Photon Torpedo Mk IV.

Seriously, just do PvP. The medals you get will get you some sweet weapons and it doesn't cost you like a billion credits from people from the exchange.

In PvP as Fed, if you lose you get about 20-25 Medals of Bravery (Lt. Comm), avg. 100 skillpoints, and around 2200 credits.

If you win its slightly more than that but not much, even if you had a hand in every kill.

Some people farm this though, and sell what they get on the exchange. Just do PvP. I just say that because I hate waiting times for PvP. If I queue queue, I want to pew pew real fast.

Just posted this in another thread. So far I have seen my best results in fleet action from a dual canon (not heavy), dual beam phaser bank, and a quantum launcher up front, and a single beam array in back.

The quantums are a little slow for my liking, so I am thinking about a change back to photons. We'll see.

2 dual cannons + torp is better if you are able to keep your target in your front wich is quite easy as an escort.

later on the highest possible dps is
2 dual cannon (not heavy cause they provide the same dps but you need only 2 normal instead of 3 heavys to fire constant open up an slot for additional dmg)
1 dualbeam
1 launcher and as much turrets as you like (can fit) in your aft slots.
