# 1 Cannons and weapon power

Do cannons and torpedoes use weapon energy levels for damage? I fire my cannons from my BoP and never see the weapon energy decrease.
Could I just lower my weapon energy to it lowest and still do as much damage? I am experimenting with it but when there is only PvP to check numbers it's hard to get consistent numbers from the vary enemy levels and shield settings.

Torpedoes and mines are not affected by the weapon energy setting, but all energy weapons (cannons, beams, turrets) are affected. It was something like 50% more damage at 100 weapon energy rating (or something like that).

Cannons do use energy and do get very nice damage boost from energy (always strive for 125 weapons power if your a damage dealer)

100% damage at 50 power. 50% more damage at 75 power. 100% more damage at 100 power. 150% damage at 125.

By the way, you can hover over your weapons in your menu to get information on current DPS, which directly reflects all current buffs, power level, etc.
