I'm not sure if its me so forgive me and point me out. I had this problem before the auto firing and I thought its just because I'm hitting the fire all phaser button, but now even using the auto fire function, after a long fight my phasers start disabling and not reactivating at all. So I end up with just turrets and whole lot longer to kill stuff especally on elite difficulty.
Is this me and its spose to do this cus it only ever happens on my cruiser..
I don't suppose you're using the skill 'Beam Overload'???
Wepons randomly won't fire in space
With all of the helpful information provided on the issue, QA was able to reproduce this weapons lockout with Beam Overload. (BO was the most commonly reported power and easiest to repro.) We're focusing on getting the fix for that. We'll update everyone as soon as we have better info on how this relates to problems caused by other powers.
