# 1 Quad cannon buff.
07-19-2012, 04:25 AM
Did the quad cannon buff come out with season 6? If no are is there a date as to when we might see It on holodeck?

And is it possible to get some stats on the buff.


Thanks.

They have a little higher dmg. Good for PvE except STF. Useless in PVP as they miss most time.

Its a bit rubbish that a defiant class ship that was built to fight the Borg has a quad cannon that's not very good in STF's.

Im confused... why do people say the Quad Cannons suck at endgame? Ive been using them since they came out on my escorts... along with turrets and regular dual cannons and I feel like I'm putting out tons of DPS... even in STFs... can anyone explain this to me?

because even with a x4 dmg mod they are still less dps then a mk 12 with no dmg mods. quad cannons really needed the x4 dmg mod removed and given a 2x acc + crit % + crit severity 10.

Since you have to pay for them anyway, i believe they still dont scale to mk xi let alone mark 12 they could use it. Quad should never have been a weapon just a console that changed the graphic of cannons and gave scaling + energy dmg stat.

Got some screenshots? I'm curious about the stats of both weapons. Also it might do less DPS but doesn't the quad cannon fire more often in a minute, dealing more damage over time then a DHC?

DPS is damage per second. It's already an over time stat.

Can somebody then please explain the following:

Quad Cannons
to target: 214.9 Phaser damage (286.6 DPS)

Phaser Dual Heavy Cannons MK XII [CrtD]x2 [Dmg]
to target: 405.3 (!!) Phaser damage (270.2 DPS)

Why is the first number so much higher with the DHC then with the Quad?

I got the numbers of a guy that posted the items in chat, so I can't look them up if questions arise.

Because DPS is damage per second. DHCs hit harder, but fire less frequently, so over the course of say 5 seconds, the less shots are fired compared to the quad cannons.
