Has anyone tried using the Needler rockets on the Bat Flag ?  I saw one guy doing it and seemed to work well, think he had hydrodynamic shells as well

    Why would you do that. Razor flag has 300% bonus compared to 63% on bat flag AND on top of that hydro shells reduce it even further. I mean you can, but.. Yes you can. Do it.

    The bat hull kills the incoming smart torps. Putting rockets on bats would probably be as bad as putting ripsaw on razors, which I found was really bad.

    If you want to kill the subs faster, with bats, then put a garwood2 on each bat.

    That isn't how that works. Only the Anti-torpedo field affects the Torpedoes.

    What is it about the Garwood II that kills the subs faster?

    Yeah. People are saying putting some Gar IIs in is making Bat Ray work better.

    It was probably a Lockdown vs the Needler. Which has the ability to slow enemy ships. Although I have heard mixed reports about how effective that was.

    Unless you got a lot of the stuff that helps Reload Rockets doubt it fired fast enough to get Stacks. Doesn't it Stack?

    Nope lock down rocket is just a flat you are hit you are now slowed by 75% for 10 seconds refreshing every time you are hit.

    So then you can probably get the Reload down below ten seconds with the right set up.
