# 1 Better Type-S Beams?
02-05-2011, 03:13 PM
Can we get them? If so where?

This common array sucks for a Vice Admiral.

I'm not sure, but I put my ships regular phasers on my runabout, that works.

Yeah, but then they aren't 360 degrees like the Type-S. I've checked Exploration vendors, Emblem vendors, Memory Alpha. If they are available anywhere I'm not seeing them.

I think one of the devs hinted at better shuttle equipment in the future, but for now all you get is the default beam array. You could always swap it ouf for a turret, though. I imagine the damage would be close, if not the same.

I've asked about shuttle weapons several times now.....I think the devs have put me on ignore.....I wonder why.

I used my Disruptor Dual Beam Bank but did find it a bit annoying. Stupid tractor beam got me from behind and I had to slowly turn just to fire on it. Definitely need the different weapon selections and torpedos for the shuttles. Hopefully they'll appear in-game soon.

The Type S Phaser that come with a Type 8 Shuttlecraft scale with level, though they'll only reach MkX level.

True...but the problem is...

a: the weapon is only in the common (white) variety.

b: it's a Phaser (Disruptor for the KDF),where are the other weapon types? Phasers are great....if you are specced for them.

c. the weapon is bound. (why the hell would a weapon like that be bound?)

In the case of C-Store ships, it's so you can't sell off equipment, decommission the ship, reclaim the ship, and then sell off the equipment etc. And, since you get a free shuttle with the first Romulan mission, it's the same deal.

Had zero problems with the plain beam, I think it was 121 dps at VA, not far off of a regular turret.
