Dual Heavy Cannons, 45deg arc - Have a +20Crit Severity bonus, its basically a build in [CrtD].
Dual Cannons, 90deg arc - Fire 8 bolts over the DHCs 4, so works better for weapon procs
Cannons, 180deg arc and are most often seen on DPS Cruiser-esq ships (Gal-X, Nebula and some of the KDFs)

# 12 Whats better

Having 4 Dual Antiproton Cannons or 4 Dual Heavy Antiproton Cannons for DPS?

(All Mk X or better anti-borg)

And does having 4 Antiproton Tactical Consoles make much of a difference compared to having just 3?

I did hear that EPS consoles don't really help much....is this true?

The dmg consoles are multaplative and not addative in terms of DPS gain, so the more you add the less of a boost they give, this is why depending on the build it might be worth taking a kinetic dmg console as the 4th over energy weapon one

Are antiproton cannons kinetic? or energy weapons?

I thought they were energy - if so a kinetic damage console will add nothing to my DPS....

and darn it I thing I have a Doff for reducing torpedo reload times....I have no torpedos /Facepalm


so at +26% damage output and 3 consoles am I getting 1.26 ^ 3 damage out put ~ x2

with 4 it would be 1.26 ^ 4 which is roughly x 2.5.....

Well if you have no kinetic weapons, then dont take a kinetic console,

The 1st console adds about 7% dps, and it goes down from their.

Why does it say +26% on them if it only adds 7% in reality - time to sue starfleet...

26% of the BASE weapon dmg, before multiplyers from skills
