Does anyone know if there is a ability/Doff/Trait/Set piece that affects a targets weapon recharge rate?Every so often i get hit with something that causes all my weapons to go on a 20 - 30 second recharge time.For that whole time i can not fire my weapons at all.

I asked in opvp and got no reply,was early so to be expected.Then tried asking in Ker'rat and was met with the usual reply about everything in the game being op and everyone being cowards.So i have no idea if it is a part of the game or a bug.If it is a ability how is it countered?None of my Boff/doff ability's seem to counter it but i dont often have engi/sci team slotted

If no one can think of a skill that could be doing this then i have a idea.I have a feeling that it is to do with snb,some rare combination of user/target skills/ability's that cause's it to hit my weapons with the cooldown debuff as well.I do seem to be hit with snb every time it happens,but that could just be me making the link and only noticing when it fits what i think.

However the first few times i noticed it was fighting jem'hadar in the new missions.Since then been getting hit with it in ker'rat and the queues every so often and i always seem to have the snb debuff when I check and when it clears I am able to fire again.It isn't a constant thing,ie I don't get it every time i am hit with snb

Just wanted to check before i file a bug report,and also let me include as much info as possible

"Boarding party".

Try using tactical team, when affected by it (You know this has happend, when you have the red-alert flash on your entire screen.

I did think about that but it didn't seem to fit with what i was seeing.Jem'hadar don't use subsystem attacks so that wouldn't explain me seeing it in missions.As for pvp its possible.Never timed the offline proc before so no idea if a 20-30 second duration is possible,the weapon drain wouldn't matter unless it was target weapons 3 with another drain,as im in a escort/Bop so have 125 weapon power

You see it everywhere... Mainly in PvP and STF missions... The Borg are especially fond of their variant of it.

Fairly sure it wasn't boarding party.Got 2 copys of tac team and there wasn't any shuttle's last time it happened.Was fighting 2 defiants and a deep space science vessel,wasn't any npc's nearby at the time.Also from what i remember that causes a 5 second cooldown that repeats till the debuff wears off,this was a constant cooldown

What you are describing can only be Boarding party. There is no other ability that does what you describe.

If the weapons shut down completely yes... that may be Beam:Target weapons, but that wouldn put them on a cooldown.

SNB should only affect skill cooldown.

Could be Phasers... They have a chance to disable weapons subsystem.

Yeah that's why i am thinking its a bug.Just want to make sure that there was not some new item/doff added to the game that could have been causing it.I am sure it wasn't power drain,no tykens and weapon power was at 125 the whole time i was not able able to fire.Was sure it wasn't boarding party as there was not any shuttles at any point in the fight,before or after,and no borg.It looked just like a cooldown,ie I had the white line moving on the icon but there wasn't a time displayed

Actually... Is there in fact a count-down/cooldown going on...

sometimes the Alt-key locks up for some stupid reason, and it seems like you cant fire... however if you tap alt a time or two it releases and you can go on.

On my ability's yes there is a countdown/cooldown.But as I said I always seem to have snb debuff so it might be unrelated.The weapons them self have no number displayed and the the white bar that move's around the icon before you can fire the weapon again moves very slowly for the entire duration,never actually makes it all the way around the icon before what ever is happening stops.

As for the alt key problem cant say i have every had that problem but that also means i cant rule it out as the issue.But when i press the mouse thumb button (have fire energy weapons bound on my mouse) the weapon icons flash the same way they do when you try to fire but can't,so it would seem the game is getting the command to fire.
