1. I have seen several other players, both on STFs and in Borg Invasion missions, who somehow are able to annihilate spheres and probes within seconds, and even several cubes within 10-20 seconds. I was wondering if anyone knows how this is possible?
You can currently equip 4 of them to the front which IMO is stupidly overpowered.
I saw a fleet the other day go into an STF... I was the only one not a member of their fleet and they all had these torps mounted. Conduit Elite it was.... Anyway, they didn't even destroy any Gens, just straight for the gate which was down in like 30 seconds and the tac cube about 2-3 mins after that along with all the spheres that appaered. Literally the whole thing done in about 5 minutes. Was insane and IMO shows how overpowered these things are, especially with no limit to the number you can equip :-(
This thread is older than the borg... bad Necromancers, bad!
The short answer to the quick kills is simply: Crits with high damage weapons. When my torpedo specialist has good timing and luck, she can tear down elite cubes in about 5 seconds by herself. When unlucky, it can drag on for about a minute.
Super-charged DHC builds are also able to tear apart things just as quickly.
