    Try Rear 4, glad 1-2-1 or MD2's, Phased 3, shock 4.. Mags and cargo never works well

    For cargo above level 35 you definitely need a rear thruster 4 or above, and phased or mag, you can still do cargo with mags. However, outside of hawks, I'd use venoms with gladius 1 or 2 to do cargos.

    Rear4, Shock4, MD2 x3, Irimag3 or Phased3, armor, works good, though with phased you'll have trouble hitting the dreads

    Rear4, Shock4, Glad1 x3, Irimag4, iridium, works well for fvf

    Rear4, Glad2 x3, phased3, And choose your shield for normal or regen, you can do much higher level cargo however you must fly them well.

    Your current build (but change strafe to rear), is decent already, although like i said itd be much better to use venoms with glad 1 or 2 for cargos

    When you
    fail… Don’t Blame Lag

    My Mags on my Hawks can do 40s with instant repairs, so they're not bad for that.


    Now to the original post, my setup is as such, I don't have Gladus Drivers so this is a Mass Driver setup.

    x3 level 2 Mass Drivers

    Zynthium Alloy 2

    Rear Thrusters 5

    Iridium Magnets 2

    Shockwave Shield 4


    I haven't tried to upgrade my Magnets yet purely because I'm going to switch over to Phased Projectiles 2 or 3.

    so i see everybody is using rear truster i tought the whole idea of the hawks was to be able to starff therefore straffing truster were the best but since you cant do so with these rear trusters (im suposing here) how do you exactly use this ones? just getting them to run in reverse? thanks in advance for the answer guys in new to this hawks...

    and yeah seeing for yourself what works best is fun but i just wanted some advice you know i cant disregard experience!

    I use Rears so my Hawks can get away from everything while being able to shoot.  Kiting is the proper name for it I do believe
