WEre these nanopulse weapons adapted by borg since day 1 or they have been changed since 2011? Because as far as I remember, they couldn't be adapted by borg when nanopulse were given for the first time (red for KDF, blue for FEDs)
How to really behave in online forums with developers
Either they changed them, or it is a bugged typo. Last years event I had gotten the nanopulse weapons and in their description it showed an 80% shield bypass, this year it doesn't. If they did in fact change them to work like an energy weapon than they are pretty useless as you can easily be as effective from afar with an energy weapon typically than in melee range hacking at them with this thing, pulse weapons excluded.
