I made my first attempt at Infected on Saturday night with 4 other players. Of course, half-way through the space portion, 3 of them had to bale on my team and I was left with one other person. We, of course, had our asses handed to us by the Borg cubes and after 30 more minutes, gave up.
I have to admit, I was pretty disappointed at how little damage just two of us could inflict on a Borg cube. My team mate had a Attack Cruiser and I have a Fleet Escort. My forward weapons are as follows: 1 mk X dual polaron array, 1 mk X dual heavy polaron cannons, 1 mk X dual heavy anti proton cannons, 1 mk X photon torpedo launcher. My aft weapons consist of 1 mk X polaron array, 1 mk 10 quantum torpedo launcher, 1 mk X anti proton turret.
I was wondering: if I replaced my mk X dual polaron array and mk X dual heavy polaron cannons with a mk X dual antiproton array and another mk X dual heavy anti proton cannons would I deliver more damage?
I have my tac officer using the level 3 rapid fire cannon and level 3 torp upgrade (I can't remember what it is called; but when selected, it fires 4 quantums at once).
I would have hoped that 2 RA5s could do more damage to a cube.
Any suggestions? I mean, other than finding 3 more teammates that won't bale on us?
Yeah it's just not meant to be done with 2 people so sadly once 3 out or 5 leave / log then you pretty much just have to give up and try again later. You may be able to squeeze out a bit more damage (I'm not escort expert) but no matter what you do the Infected enemies are much stronger than the typical DSE variants and 2 RA5 just won't be able to handle it.
