# 1 Antiproton Sweep
01-30-2012, 12:34 PM
So I was running Sh'mar just now and the Jem'Hadar ships were using an Antiproton sweep. I couldn't tell whether it was damaging since, but I couldn't work out what it was doing either. Hovering over the debuff icon only gave me the name. I hadn't seen it before so guessing it's a new ability.

Can any devs shed any light?

It damages shields and disables cloaking devices within the cone of its effect.

It's basically a cone-based Charged Particle Burst.

You know, that really is something I miss about Lotro - the debuff icons actually tell you what's going on.

Can we get some better tooltips?

Well this is new.

Can we assume that this will be the +1 console attached to the Bug ship when it hits the C Store?

CBS won't let them put the Jem Hadar ship in the C-Store. One requirement for allowing it at all was its rarety.

have seen it today for the first time...

have to say the visual does not look exactly TREK to me.

not very cinematic either.

very intrusive though, you won't miss it if its used.


PS: after dealing with Shield stripping Borg, this should not be a big deal.
All my STF's ships are set up for Hull tanking now anyway ;P

the visual FX could be a bit more *decent* looking though.

that huge red thing is a bit too much IN YOUR FACE for my taste...

I wish they would even a faction setup for it like the KDF was before season 5 would be fine to me just to get to play a new faction. Thats the only way based on the rarity issue for consoles for them that I could see them making more money off them is they had a faction to drop in to release these that could work on ships other factions have of the same model.

It's quite irritating. Looks just like a big red grid for me that most of the time doesn't even hit my ship.

Why can't we just adjust the resonance frequency of our cloaking devices, thus negating the antiproton scans?

You dont really belive that do you?

This thing is gonna hit the C-Store, it's gonnabe pricy and it is gonna create a boom to income.

(They said the EXACT same thing about the TOS Connie...)
