# 1 Borg and my Shield
03-05-2010, 08:58 AM
Sorry if this have been asked before but I went back like 10+ pages and did not find anything. When I go up against Borg cubes. they have this projectile like weapon that totally strip away my shield. What is it and what is the best counter for it? TIA.

I think you speak about the cube in explore missions. It drains your shields very fast but does few hull damage. What I do is having several hull repair skills and stay outside of it's tractor beam range.

Additionally you should shoot down nastybad HY plasma torpedoes and go in the offensive energy setting since your shields are worthless anyway.

What these people said.

Don't rely on shields. Focus on other things instead. Firepower, armor, hull repair, maneuverability, etc...

3 things to always win against borg cubes.

1. Polorize hull plating, gotta have this because it means you take a considerably less amount of energy and it stops those pesky tractor beams.

2. Switch all your power to weapons because power in shields won't help you at all.

3. Brace for impact, it may seem like a nooby skill but when you do see one of those plasma torps, you can do this and take a ton less damage

if all else fails, ramming speed can usually finish them.
