Is it just me, or is this weapon completely worthless? Even when I chug an Aux battery before firing it, and even with the Proc active, it barely tickles my target's tailpipe. So either it's broken, or i'm doing it wrong. I mean, even the crappy Sabotage Probe does more. The only reason I see anyone actually running the Particle Beam is for the two-piece bonus. I saw a double BO build that used it with deadly results.
Ok, you're talking about the beam from the MACO set I presume? I have it currently, on an Aux2Batt build, mainly because I'm saving up dili and our fleet is pretty close to elite shields, engines and deflectors. Its kinetic damage, that means shields, even the slightest and it looses a lot of effect, that being said, even with Aux2Batt running it still does around 6-10k dmg when I fire it at an un-shielded targe, not a lot, but enough to keep it around while I wait for my Elite set.

LTS, here since...when did this game launch again?
I realized that shortly after posting this. I don't post often, so I didn't know how to delete my post. Also, I figured that since my Character is technically part of the Federation, that it would be fine.
