View Full Version : recomended weapon setup?
whats the recomended weapon setup for a heavy raidor/raptor command ship, not sure what weapons i should have on mine that would be most effective during wars, since command ships can't dog fight as well as the interceptor class's in strike tier.
I have 2 long range cannons and a light missle launcher, and tech i have a device that attempts to hack the openents engines which wroks quite often, ill be buying some nukes upgraded missles and more tech soon as i have enough.
Your main strength on a command ship is the electronics.
The capacitor make your stuff recharge faster. correction: gives more pp (ty Ares)
The module hardening protects against electronic attacks.
these are hands free
The others you have to activate and require more multitasking, but if you get skilled in them, they are worth the hassle.
One interesting setup I had on a previous wipe was a rap with 3 mining cannons upgraded to the hilt, 2 capacitors and two mineral scanners. I could cut right through some roids really quickly and scan the heck out of a system at the same time.
Just an example of a specific use.
Just figure out what you want it to do and specialize accordingly...
The capacitor make your stuff recharge faster.
This is incorrect. The capacitor module gives you extra PP, it does not make your PP regen faster.
for interceptors use 3 guns and gyro's in at least 3 of the engine spots.
for heavy's use either all guns and the rcs thing that gives you the slide ability or speed modules and all missles.
Point is this, interceptors are for close dogfighting. Heavy's dont stand a chance in close so you have to use range or die. Otherwise use the slide ability and slug it out with your opponent.
