About Blazer

Okay I'm not sure if this is a bug or not.

But the blazer on my cruiser appears to have 5 heavy combat beams, yet in weapon test it only fires 1. I'm only just started playing the game again, so I haven't actually try it in real combat if this is only a bug in weapon test or whatnot. Also I'd rather not invest in prototyping a new cruiser if it doesn't work as intended. Also Assault Bridge has the same problem. Looks to have 3 heavy combat beams, only the topside one fires.

Its the size of the target. The guns don't have line of sight. Should be fine in combat. In fact you'll see the same thing in combat. One side of the ship has a shot that side will only fire.

Bigger the target more likely all the beams will fire. Morrigi cruisers have a lot of HCLs and Liir with their inertia-less drives have easy time putting the beams up your pipes. :D

Now if the targets in weapon tester were scalable then you could really see all your guns in action. 8)

To quote from slippy's friend: Do a barrel roll!.

or a spin, gets your weapons in firing field.
