In current state gun is only suitable for a Gun ship (or in T5 where you can make a command/tackler with full dps glass cannon build)
In t3 the only options are Achilles, Nukem 1, Desert Eagle, overall Nuk and DE are the best suited - Shorter CD for crits on Nuk, or higher over all dmg on DE
To increase range, you should be using a lens or/and 2-2 implant, not a horizon.
Cpu - obviously crits and cap slot - both Heat sink and Pulse discharge lead to the same result with energy deficit and if you don’t have a pocket Engy with a battery, consider a passive armor.
The gun-build is very situational, and more than often it is useless and very inefficient, since it calls to very specific conditions on a battle field to shine. Especially in T3, where in general you see more than often heavier setups (plenty of frigs and fighters).
To be honest I don’t think the gun worth it anywhere outside of T5 Spark/Mjolnir comparing to the overall utility and usefulness of all other options
Thanks for this informative summary. I had considered the implant but 2-1 is just so nice. Yeah I know with horizons you are doubly penalized: lak of crit module + damage reduction, there is no other way to get to about 3.5k-4k range which is what I deem skirmish range.
Yeah I’ll need to try it out in t5 once the alien part thingies are available in game again to build one. I might try and build a jaguar around that weapon or something.

You should feel ashamed. I can’t even read this. Mill of all people, your very accurate with gauss why would you use this?
Healer -(the player) Has a very good build with a Prom X. I see that he has negative hull resists so he must be using passive armor and has round 4K range. Kost is right about T3 the weapon is alot less effective untill you hit T5.
Side Note : Kost also great job on the wiki update. Seriously.
Kost did I find a easter egg you left on the wiki. Whats this ?
And most importantly when can I fly one !!! How much will it cost and :
Heh yeah nothing will beat gauss for me, but I just wanted a challenge today, to try and find a suitable build for that weapon. It seems I failed.
On a prom X? o.O But that has no CPU slots?! I mean I considered the ship it but it didn’t seem at all worth it. It could be nice on a regular prom with one CPU slot, I’ll have to give it a look.
It looks a bit like the stingray… A stretched version
