hehe, fully specced and buffed I've had my:

DBB-BO3 crit for 40k+
BA-BO3 crit for 25k+

and in last weekends Shuttle Wars I had my DBB-BO1 crit for 25k! that one was epic...

Still sux that it says "unknown".... and wierd that someone should build for BO and use tetryons....

Damn. The highest I have personally seen is in the 25-28k range. Which is still pretty badass, almost insta-death. I wouldn't be surprised if there was higher, like up to 30-35 but damn@ 40k. I have yet to see that.

25k of a single beam seems.... extra-ordinary.

What exactly do you mean by "specced"? Are you just talking energy weapon specs, or is there something else skillwise that can boost BO?

(I starred out the persons name to keep him anonymous. Otherwise this is entirely copied and pasted from my combat log.)


I was in a CnH yesterday in my sci-scort and was riding the tail of this particular escort on the other team. I had about 55% hull and 25 % shields when all of a sudden one of his rear Tetryon Beams hit me for the huge amount of damage above. I tried asking him but I got no response.

So now I ask you guys. Any clue what happened???
I can explain exactly what happened as we had this occur during last weeks shuttle wars.

He was most likely using BO1, or BO2 (I have not had this happen on 3)
He most likely had a lag spike, while activating the power and it failed to register properly in the game's logs. The beam reached out smacked you one and you died, showing you the correct damage.

I'd be willing to bet EC that if you asked him (assuming he's the type to save his combat logs) to go back and look at it, or to look at his damage total, you both would discover that the Beam Overload's damage did not even register in his combat log or final damage total with that shot. Even though it quite clearly was registered in the game every where else.

The reason I know this happens from time to time was during shuttle wars I did this to someone. Every other BO1 shot that I had that crit for that hard registered correctly. The funny thing is after the BO1 showed up as an unknown entity, my "Death To" keybind stopped working for the rest of the match, which really hampered our ability to coordinate fire.

I've smacked people for 35k with BO1 before using a Tetryon DBB. (BO1 with AP is even better) so 25k out of a Beam Array isn't all that surprising.

Also Dassem, I use Tetryons, but my VA AE is centered around BO3. I use them there because frankly, Tetryon is the most pretty weapon effect in the game. Especially when I go into my main AE with it's big blue white bolts of doom.

here is one i did recently, that got stored in a chat log:

Your Dual Antiproton Banks - Overload III deals 38025 (32884) Antiproton Damage to ******.

Specced in the weapon type, attack vectors and battle strategy. And using APB3.

EDIT: this just in-
Your Dual Antiproton Banks - Overload II deals 42624 (30077) Antiproton Damage to ****** *******.

not bad for BO2

Hey getting an 80 turn rate and trying to spiral up from you only to get a BOv in the back when i had no resist or heals to use.....shoot a friend in the back cus i was on the other side...god friend man, really good friend.

On topic, i have seen many combat logs of X energy weapon hitting for 9k to 20k with unknown ability. No mention of BOv, Crit, FBP and the damage before and after is all normal for cannons or beams. this unknown is like a "ghost in the machine" and just appears outside of the median.

Fully Decked, AP DBBs can hit for 70k in the hands of a tac when circumstances cooperate just right with BO3.

(that 70 percent crit severity is what does it)
