Don't guess.

If the weapon was a light pinkish color in a jagged lightningish line it was anti proton.

And yes 2 or 3 of anything using rapid fire on you will eat your hull on bleed through alone if you can't be bothered with Engineering team and or hazard emitters....

I'm not 100% sure, but the cannon fire looked reddish/orange-ish, but I'm not sure, I wasn't paying attention to the color at the time, I was too freaked out trying to pop all my engineer coolldowns trying to save my ass that the only thing I noticed was my hull dropped like a stone, my shields intact, and it was still happening when I hit the engines to try and escape. After the first engagement we were trying to figure out what was happening, choosing different opening targets because we though hell, maybe somebody found a weird FBP exploit or something. We just didn't know.

I've faced everything in the game in pvp and I'm sure some of the people I've fought must have had antiproton weapons, but it took these 2-3 (we were on the short end of a 5 v 3) escorts focus firing us to let us see what it was doing.

Then yes, it was anti-proton. And yeah, I'm an engineer, and I was popping Eng Team and everything else, so until you know what actually was going on fully, why don't you save the sarcasm, and in lieu of saving it, shove it up your aft. Be helpful or informative, or don't bother.

All i know for sure is antiproton will deffintley hit shields. If u were taking zero shields damage its something else or a combination of things.

I was popping Sci Team, RSF and RSP which would account for my shields appearing up.

Note the lack of hazard emitters in your statement..its another 30% hull resistance and 450+ healed per tick for 24-29seconds

And I cannot save the sarcasm it flows naturally from me like the wisdom I am attempting to shame you into absorbing.

FOCUS FIRE is bad... not fleeing while under focus fire is bad too...

Being a user of Antiproton i have deffintley hit people hard with RSP and it doesn't do any good it absorbed it like everything else. Inless someone here really knows whats going on i suggest u go get some antiproton weapons and test things out. It would only take one, ive never seen my weapons do anything like your talking about. But i will do a lot of dps which any weapon is capable of.

If anything, they need to improve the dps of antiproton weapons... from what Ive noticed, the extra crit chance doesnt seem to work...
Dear Mr. Uninformed.

Please do something really creative with your sarcasm and one of your bodily orifices.

Do you think I got to T5 by *not* pvp'ing, with both a Fed and a Klingon? My Klingon is an engineer, so I have my Negh Var decked out with every protective skill in the book. And if you are so uninformed as to not notice that the dps of the weapon is ...well, right there on it, I can't help you. The only thing that adversely affects dps of any weapon that is used is: do you have consoles for the weapon? have you put points into the weapon? I'm pushing 1200ish dps on my dual heavies, which isn't too damn bad.

OMG the Feds found an advantage. Cry about it. Seriously. Take your battle cloak and shove it.
