Can anyone tell me? Should I replace The old Borg modified Weapons with The Fleet Weapons? I have a couple of Ships with The old Mk XII Antiproton Beams. and I was wondering if I should replace them with Fleet Weapons?

I heard Anti-Borg weapons were bugged, thats why they were removed.

Aparently the proc only works against probes, spheres and cubes (including tac cubes). Assimilated ships don't trigger the proc because the devs were lazy and just copypasted their stats to a new model, so they don't actually register as Borg.

Generally it is a good idea to get the advanced fleet weapons as a replacement partially because of that proc issue, but also because other affixes will benefit you in other content as well.

I have the Borg AP weapons and have access to the new Fleet AP's.
What I recommend is, if you want to spend your points/dil on something else, do it.
My Borg DHC's are still nasty in comparison to Fleets.

If you have everything else you wanted, then I guess the marginal (imo) upgrade would be justified.
NO to ARC...Keep it in Beta

Seconded. The Single [CrtH] on the old Borg Weapons is quite a boost for AP weapons, so going to [dmg]x2[acc]x2 wasn't as big as what I was hoping when I picked some up. It might be worth it for PVP for the second [acc] to get past the high Defense values escorts have, but in PvE I found them quite a small upgrade. Fleet [dmg]x3[acc] or [dmg]x3[CrtH] would probably come out worse, but I haven't tried those on AP.

For other energy types, the Fleet Weapons are a decent upgrade most of the time, but with the innate crit damage boost the [acc] with [CrtH] mods narrows the gap between Borg and Fleet for AP.
