# 1 CRF2 vs CRF3 vs APO2 vs APO3
08-29-2011, 01:28 PM
I have a RA1 Tac flying the Advanced Escort. I currently have Cannon Rapid Fire 2 and Attack Pattern Omega 3. I'm considering switching them out for Cannon Rapid Fire 3 and Attack Pattern Omega 2 to improve DPS but I can't find any real numbers to make an informed decision. Does anyone know where I can find the numbers because I'm sure someone has done the comparison before. I've been searching the forums and wiki for a couple of hours now and have yet to find anything. Thanks.

I haven't looked into this in a while, but last I heard, APO3 with CRF2 does higher DPS. HOWEVER, APO has a very long cooldown, which means you end up using CRF2 by itself frequently. So I've found it better to run CRF3 personally. Actually, I use CRF3 plus APB 1 (which has the same cooldown as CRF3).

Well you won't be able to do that as APO2 is a Cmdr lvl skill as well (old holdover from a time when you couldn't trade BOs).

To save you some time on the numbers, RF3+APO1 provides slightly higher dps then RF2+APO3 however since Rapid Fire has half the cooldown that Omega does, it is much more beneficial to have Rapid Fire 3.

-Hope this helps

While CRF 3 has higher uptime, I find, in PvE at least, that APO 3 is better as you can squeeze out 3 of them in short order with Tactical Initiative. APO3 also helps with non cannon attacks.
