The ACCx2 mod is a good start and while I have found Tets fine for PvP many disagree due to the fact the proc is kinda pointless when the shields drop.

Unless you're rolling with a Torpedo Boat beside you, a Tet boat is roughly useless in PVP. When the shields go down, there's no point to exist.

If anything, I'd go to Phased Polaron, or Romulan Plasma. If not the usual big 3.

Tetryon makes no difference to the shield-face that you're shooting, your regular energy damage takes that out faster than Tetryon proc can do anything about it. At best it will help you to drain some of the other shield facings a little faster. Polaron works better for that though, since it actually drains the shield power. Meanwhile, everybody else who is using disruptors and antiprotons is already deep into the enemy's hull.

Tetryon is pretty useful in PVE against things like unimatrix, elite tact cubes, tholian caps, stuff like that with stupid amounts of shield. Otherwise leave it at home.

Tetryon is very good if you're running 2-Piece Omega and plenty of Flow Capacitors along side. As long as you can keep your guns on target, you'll eventually pulp the target's shields damage resistance be damned.

That said, for a Bird of Prey, they're probably not the ideal weapon as you're not too likely to be on target long enough, often enough, for that setup to shine.
If you feel Keel'el's effect is well designed, please, for your own safety, be very careful around shallow pools of water.

What about phased tetryon? Phaser proc + tetryon proc? In any case with 2.5 % of proc with any weapon is to low if i can destroy in a single pass, knowing that, any type of energy could work, if im wrong tell me plz, i really want to learn

Well, IMO Tetryon isn't as good in PvP because pretty much everyone has at least 6, and most likely 9 points in Power Insulators. So the somewhat small proc does even less regardless of spec due to that.

I'd say stick with the disruptors.
