# 1 fleshing out the weapons
02-12-2012, 06:05 AM
going over the energy weapons we have-

dual heavy cannons
dual cannons
single cannon
turret


dual beam bank
beam bank


i think we need to add a few more choices-
heavy single cannon

heavy dual beam banks
heavy beam bank
point defense array (think like a turret- low low damage but 360 protection)

have the power costs of the heavy weapons go up and the power costs of the turrets and point defense arrays be slightly higher then the normal (regualr awway and single cannons being the basis for normal) weapons.

thoughts?

8 heavy beam banks on a cruiser sounds delicious.

I would like to see quad heavy cannons. Instead of weapons with mods maybe it would be nice to have consoles determine the mods of the weapons?

I'm all for moar options.

I'd like to see a bit more incentive to using the various types of weapons, too. As it is (at least, for my playstyle), nothing beats all Beam Arrays with FAW. No reason to use DBB (33% percent of the Beam Array's arc for only a 30% damage boost? pass), no reason to use (single) Cannons and Turrets due to range drop off... and even with CSV, they don't match FAW.

Omg I would be all over heavy DBBs. I would run them on a Scort. So when people try to abuse the Z axis I can still beat them silly and then smash them with a torp.

Hm, maybe the Heavy weapons would only have 1 shot per cycle, compared to the standard 4?

It'll have a lower proc rate, obviously, but it provides better burst. It'd be like a torp. But energy-based.

Maybe?
