# 1 Breen Hunting!?
04-25-2013, 01:48 PM
Until now I have just been slapping what ever gear happened to very "generally" be better than what I had before with no tactics or plans. I figure it is time I start working on improving the way I sort my gear so I figured Breen is a good place to start since it is the first episode I remember doing start to finish.

So my question is, are there any damage types that work best as killing Breen and Breen ships faster than others? I already look a look at the wiki so I know what weapons they are going to use against me so I know what defenses I need in order to minimize damage taken, but is there an ideal method to maximize damage dealt?

The Breen don't have any particular weaknesses that I know of so any old energy type should do, although I do rather like to set their ships on fire with plasma weapons.

With the Breen, though, there are things to watch out for. They are control freaks: lots of tractor beams in space, holds + heavy damage on the ground. Their larger ships are also big on energy drains. Having Polarize Hull/Attack Pattern Omega and a Science Team is good for shutting all of that down in space. And when you see the little blue-white circles for their cryo-grenades on the ground, clear out.

Just make sure you focus on one (1) energy type only, and boost it with the appropriate tactical consoles to max out your damage output.

The Breen are quite fond of Transphasic Torpedoes so resilient shields are a bonus.

If you're going up against the Breen for the first time, the best available set is probably the Jem hadar Space set so make sure you get everything at XI by mission replay.

Plasma based weapons seem to work very very well against the Breen. I like watching them cook because they always seem so smug. Especially when they have no real reason to be so.

Hazard Emitter, Polarize Hull and Science Team are useful Boff skills to have when fighting Breen.

As mentioned, the Breen cryo grenades are brutal. Avoid them like they're Neuter Grenades. Also, they pretty much wipe out engineer fabrications without breaking a sweat so engy boff fab spam isn't as effective vs the Breen.

Anything that gives you resistance to holds/slows will be very valuable vs Breen on the ground. You might want to gear up with the Personal Mobility Shield. There's a polyalloy armor with a [Mob] bonus that is pretty cheap on the exchange (around 5-6k), as well. Also, anything that grants cold resist will be really fraggin' useful. I wonder if running EV suits through the Breen missions would take the bite out of their grenades?

And I agree with thunderfoot about plasma. It may not hurt the Breen more, but setting them on fire just feels right.

It's the same as painting a race car red and giving it stripes.

You are almost obligated to do it.
