# 1 TOS Type 3 rifle unmatched
02-16-2011, 07:00 AM
It seems this weapon has no modern day counterpart (Strong primary attack/devastating secondary attack).
I still use it unless knockback is required (STF). The only weapon that comes close is the high density beam rifle but it is less damaging and has a knockbck which isn't always wanted.
Against single targets the TOS T3 is unmatched, it's time to get a modern day equivalent.

Yeah what about a type three compression rifle from VOY? or a phaser rifle from ST:FC, with that type of power? that would be nice.

I agree...I'd like to see some or all of the following:

TNG/early DS9 phaser rifle - http://images.wikia.com/memoryalpha/...aser_rifle.jpg
late DS9/TNG movies - http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/File:Ph...rage,_2375.jpg
"Nemesis" rifle - http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/File:Ph...circa_2379.jpg

Voy compression rifle - http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/File:Ay...urity_team.jpg

I believe the sniper file in game currently looks like Nemesis rifle. Or close to it.

Yeah there are rifles that "look" close to the FC rifles but the rifle from NEMESIS and the compression rifles from VOY would be cool.

The weapons generally look fine, I just wish they didn't have the silly glowing holographic things that make no sense whatsoever. I wish you could toggle them off like the kits.

But I'm pretty sure the OP is talking about the rifle's power not the looks anyway

Yeah, hard to sneak up on someone when there's a GREAT BIG GLOWING BLUE thing on your rifle.

I could be wrong, but I believe these holo pieces are there to provide some kind of visual cue as to the various weapon types (eg. split beam, compression, sniper etc.) and MK level.

Personally, I am with you in that I do not care for their look either. I would prefer a slight variation on the actual weapon - like a "scope" on the sniper etc. - instead of the blue glowy things.

Sure, low level rifles.

The RA and VA1 rifles don't look anything at all like Canon Phaser rifles.
And there are so many times i wish i could use the Mk I weapons models on my Mk XI weapons.

Same here. I would not mind seeing this as a crafting option in the future... allowing us to take that MK I model and add components like scopes or power packs or whatever to them to bring them up to higher levels.
