Though obviously under-powered compared the fancy blueprint weapons, Miner Rebellion weapons are still the arsenal base for rookies like me.
How effective are they? I am currently Bridge 3 late level and didn't expected Plasma Torpedo to be a big splash inaccurate rocket that it is.
I guess I will state my opinion on each weapons and hopefully pros like you can shed some light too.
Pulse Ray: Standard Energy weapon, only good up until Bridge 2 tech. Heavy. Single shot, average ROF.
Rail Driver: Standard Projectile weapon, great at missing targets, used for low level sniping fleets. Single shot
Scatter Missile: Standard Explosive Weapon, a shotgun, never seems to do good damage but hits. Several Missles
Disruptor Ray: Much more better and lighter with only slightly shorter range. Though is useless in PvP unless used in a speed blitz build as it has high DPS. Does damage in a burst.
Gauss Driver: Practically better than Rail Driver in every way though also the same. Upgrades low level sniping fleets. Still misses.
Hex Missile: Feels much more better than Scatter Missile. Viable for base sniping fleet. Lobs 2 shots in 2 quick barrages.
Plasma Torpedo: Feels less effective than HEX Missile (barely use it though). Great AOE. Viable sniping fleet weapon. Fires like the HEX Missile.
Polaron Ray: Longest range. Upgrades from Disruptor Ray but lesser DPS. (haven't unlocked it yet)
Mass Driver: The big brother of the Miner Rebellion Ship Projectile weapon. Probably misses. Normal upgrade.
I guess I should also cover Base weapons too.
Thermal Ray Turret: Death laser that easily gets outranged. Possibly good against blitz fleet with only one turret.
Coil Driver Turret: Projectile weapon used by base. Counters sniping fleets.
Graviton Ray Turret: High enough range to hit low range sniping fleets. Probably as effective as a ping pong ball launcher.
Plasma Missile Turret: HEX Missile for the base. Real anti-blitz weapon. Pretty inaccurate.
Kinetic Driver Turret: Upgrade to the Coil Driver Turret. Enough said. (haven't unlocked it)
Fusion Torpedo Turret: Probably Plasma Torpedo for the base. (haven't unlocked it)
So how true are my thoughts on the Miner Rebellion weapons? What are the most effective ones in what situations?
