Weapon shielding

Recommended Posts

really, how?

Targetting CP. As an aquan player, take precise strike MAR, and abuse the hell out of the system sniper TAC to target life support. Directorate doesn't even have to try that hard if they bought the usual biohazard updates. Sorylians and Dindrenzi both have the hardest time, due to limited cyber/biohzaard availability...but they also have enough raw AD to just punch past the shields with ease.

Which makes weapon shielding one of the easiest to disable MARs in the game, but that's another thing.

I thought ablative armor was the easiest MAR to remove/negate. Not every faction has easy access to the right tools to cause effective crew loss and bypass weapon shielding.

Weapon shielding is one of the strongest MAR in the game.

Until you run into Directorate, Works Raptor or anyone else who can load up on Biohazard, Cyber Warfare, Assault Robot Torpedoes, or a combination of the above (which isn't all that rare). Then Weapon Shielding is worth about one Zimbabwean Dollar.

Sorylians and Terrans are the only ones with absolutely no tools. Dindrenzi can try to use hazard markers, while Aquans, Directorate and Relthoza can either abuse targeted strikes/cyberwarfare easily or have cheap access to biohazard in quantities.Weapon Shielding was given to terrans to make them ON PAR with other fleets, but somehow 4/6 main fleets have easy way to exploit it. That turned out to be a bit of an oversight.

That would be an acceptable statement if we had access to as much srs as other factions, you should have to be forced to take the carrier.

Or Solar.

Or Tyrant.

Besides, what is wrong with the best true carrier in the game?

Nine wings to start with...

Deck Crews Standard...

Add +1 shield and an Aegis accompaniment and you have a tough nut to Crack for about 245 points...
