Spread is great.

TS1 = two ~75% normal damage projectiles at 3 targets within the targeting arc doing AOE damage

TS2 = three..

TS3 = four...

It's a fantastic skill because it hits spam like fighters and HY torps incoming so it's its pretty handy in addition to the damage it does.

Spread is great, because it does not miss....

Use Spread against a lot of smaller targets like spheres , and use high yield against bosses like cubes.
Let us wear Swimsuits on Foundry maps or bridges please! I would pay zen for that.

It also never procs a projectile weapons officer, and puts rapid reload transphasics on a 10s cooldown (as opposed to 8s)

It's a very buggy skill.

It should, but it doesn't.

I have two Tactical Boffs that I switch between depending on wether I need Single target or AOE damage. You rarly need AOE and Single target in the same fight so I use other officers for my attack paterns and Tacticle teams.

Being able to quickly switch between an officer with Volley and Spred and one with High Yeild and Rapid is prity nice.

Wonder what Torpedo point defence system with spread is like????
Imagine Awesome caught in a self-sustaining temporal loop and folded back upon itself in an infinite recursion thus forming an Awesome Singularity.

TS3 + TPDS is basically this.

I have this combo keybound to "B" which stands for the Button That Makes Everybody Die.

It really depends on your playstyle and ship you're flying.

As my main char is a sci, I fell in love with the Fleet Nebula Class.
There I have the universal slot assigned to a tac, leaving me with 2x Tac team 1, torp spread and pattern beta. Used after a well placed grav well3, combined with sensor scan can be devastating. Of course I need help from my escort teammates.

On the JHEC I have only 1 tac with: tt1, csv (2?) , thy3, crf 3

by the time the torpedoes arrive, one shield facing is most definately down.
I got used to it as I dont like to aggro too many

I am speaking pve here as I lack practice in pvp.

Apparently the point defense is affected by the photon damage consoles. This is why I've got two of them and a Very Rare Photon Torpedo Launcher Mark XI armed on my Heavy Escort as well. And yes, I have done torpedo spread 3 and the Point Defense Console. Lots of torpedoes going everywhere. Works wonders in the Crystalline Catastrophe mission by clearing out those pesky large crystal shards....
