I just got the cutting beam and put it in a turret slot in my defiant-R. I'm not seeing any animation for it at all. I've got DHC, turrets and a torpedo launcher with CSV and TS. Is it just really quick and/ or really small? Am I just not seeing it or am I missing something?
Looking at the chatbox it's firing and doing damage- I just don't see it.
For what it costs I was hoping it was going to show something really cool.
It's just really small and quick. When the beam is hitting the ships hull you should be able to see it doing a little circle as it moves around. I was barely able to track it in a PvP match while flying my cruiser. At the speeds an escort flys at... Well good luck!
I'm having the same issue that I don't seem to see anything at all; can anyone show what it should look like? I've tried a load of different combination of settings but don't see anything at all.s
I'm assuming this is why I have such trouble with the borg gateways as several of the high level borg ships have cutting beams so I'm thinking maybe the gateways do too; would explain why they eat my hull so quickly once my shields are down, despite no visible effect after their shield drain beam. I know the cubes do have cutting beams and I definitely don't see those either.
