Ok, so we have 3 buttons on the hud i sorta do and don not understand. The fire all phasers is straight forward. But the fire all torpedos button puzzles me. I usually fit my ship (4 fore, 4 aft) 2 beams and 2 torps in the fron and back, thinking the fire all torpedo would lets so, if i had my setup, fire 2 if i pree it. but it still only fires the 1. so it actuall makes no sence to put more than one torpero in the front and back (unless you want their effects). Sooooo....my question is, Is this a bug that will someday be fixed? or is this the way it will be. and if this is the way it will be, why not remove the button and be done with it?
What it does is that it signals all torpedo weapons to fire. Then, the system fires the first torpedo. That puts all other torpedoes on a very short cooldown. When that cooldown is done, you can tap the fire button again to fire the next torpedo, no matter what it is.
Alternatively, you can set them to auto-fire so they automatically fire after your cooldown is up.
It only fires the one because of the global cool-down applied when using more than one, so you need to press your assigned key again once the second torpedo tube is off the cool-down.

fire all torpedoes is a button that most of us don't use it - you don't need to fire only torpedoes in any situation i know; but if we have fire all phaser then we have to have fire all torpedoes. maybe for RP players it's usefull.
ps: you should do some research about your build. it doesn't sounds like is a good one at all. i'm sure you can find some information about what builds you can create with your favorite ship on the forum. if not there are allways people willing to help you.
If we all live in boxes doesn't mean that my box is the same color as yours

There's plenty of times when you might want to fire 'only torpedoes.' If I want to drop two chained THY volleys against bare hull, then I don't want my torpedoes set to auto fire, and I don't want them going off under 'Fire All.' So I fire them separately as the shields drop. Spamming torpedoes all over has its place, but there's times when it's less efficient.
The button should say "Fire Only Torpedoes" rather than All. The purpose of the button is to only fire Torps rather then Beams and Torps.
The 3 buttons are for people who don't keybind and the like. They just go in firing every thing, only beams, or only torps.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.
