i find empire snipers extremely powerfull against, basically everything. its not very hard to hit a fighter and or interceptor with the disintegrator speed increase module.
13 000 meters, same damage as guided torpedo.
its like a super powerfull Positron Cannon.
positron cannon = long range, fast projectile speed. = perfect interceptor and fighter killer.
aslong as this one deals 10k dmg per hit, if mk4 weapon it deals 11k. and you got modules to increase damage by 30 precent and projectile speed by 120 precent.
this against guard hurts. its okay that you can hide and all this. but within the time you are fighting off the rest of enemies and you move a slightly bit aside you are in range of the long range again.
also it does not deal exlposion damage = the r1 implant federation, exlposion damage reduced by 30 precent.= useless.
trying to go covert ops against it. “might work” but its quite hard to get to the long range before your invisibility is off. also its easy to spot the ship even as invisible.
it can get 57 000 survival, + with 2 survival modules and or one, this is getting quite hard to kill.
i also find empire ships way more surviveable, the lightbringer is also overpowered
you might be able to see the laser. but, if you are in a dogfight you wont always notice it and just suddenly get whiped out 13 000 meters away.
also, they try to move either upp / down, left or right on corner of map and put on this stealth field so you cant see them.
if you try rushing the long range you are already thousands of meters within their territory and everyone will charge at you aswell before you even get close to the long range.
jericho long ranges = can hide, has 10 000 range. has 4x slower reload time than sniper. within the time you hide people can see the track of your guided torpedo.
the ship is weaker than sniper.
if you hide you loose the field vision and if someone charges at you, you would not even see it.
people often dies when they are using the guided torpedo module. loose sight around them instantly.
its quite easy to avoid because you will hear the missile is coming quite long before its there. interceptors and fighters can avoid it easily. except with volley charge.
there is no reason to hide because if you get attacked you’re main weapon is useless and you are most likely dead before you even hit the enemy.
