Target painters-->rockets?


#1

I forgot, do target painters affect rockets besides missiles?


#2

yes, but not perfectly


#3

That’s too bad, I just don’t seem to able to find any use for rockets, especially as an alternative to imperial laser beam…they are very flimsy.


#4

decent source of dps, they can penetrate average cruiser shields so thats better than imperial beam. also a bit longer range i think…

i find them useful for mid-short range combat


#5

I don’t know about that, I compared with imperial beam setup and rockets setup, Imperial beam lasers destroy frigates far more quickly. Maybe it’s the visual thing but with rockets it takes forever to kill anything.


#6

imperial beam can’t seem 2 penetrate cruiser shields in my experience…

but then again i don’t have a lot of experience…


#7

Thing is, everybody and their brother use reflective shields on cruisers if given the choice, and, correct me if I’m wrong, no (stock/dlc) beam weapon except the Swarm Disruption beam has a shield penetration of 27 or higher.


#8

I use fast recharge shields, the reflective resistance difference is only 3, so you are still covered against most beam type weapons.


#9

ya… but the fusion beam is still annoying…
