Green and UV Beamers

Post by jacobharristrombone » Mon May 28, 2012 10:56 pm

Occasionally I get this tech, but I'm not sure why I should research it, apart from pinging turrets. Have any of you had success with these mounts?

I don't use these very much on my regular ships, but Drones outfitted with beamers work very well. :)

Dual green beamers have the same DPS than Phasers if no Reflective Coating.
Dual uv beamers have the same DPS than Phasers if Reflective Coating.
Triple uv beamers have the same DPS than dual Phasers if no Reflective Coating.

Of course they have lower range than Phasers, but hey, they're a Fission tech compared to Fusion for Phasers...
And it's the cheapest path to Phasers by far.

So they seem a pretty good weapon to me...

They make an excellent weapon against the Swarm, great for stripping derelicts, act as a makeshift pd... Great really.
ErinysSolForce Intelligence has great difficulty penetrating Liir society to that depth, for obvious reasons. fibioLack of scuba gear?
