I have tried most of the person weapons myself. I havent tried very many of the ship guns. I tend to lean towards ballistic rather than laser or plasma. I love the Karna but it kicks like a mule. What are your opinions of personal weapons? Ship guns? Missiles?

When it comes to personal weapons, I also prefer ballistic to energy. From what I can understand, you cannot "top off" Energy weapons, you just load in a new cell.

There are advantages to this, Energy weapon cells can be recharged, while you would have to buy more ammo for the ballistics. Being able to recharge energy cells from you ship/room interface, would be a boon. Especially for long range/deep space missions.

I usually carry a LH86 as my Sidearm, with a P8-SC as my Primary and either a R97 Shotty, or Scalpel for my Secondary. Also grenades. Always. have. grenades.

The Oxypens and Medipens are givens...

usually just grab a karna and railgun for the persons.

for the ship i think i like to have half cannon and half repeater. cannon to try to hit them from distance when they're incoming and the distance for when they try to run. repeater when they get in closer.

missiles are broke so eh

No matter what I fly or what loadout i use I'm always taken out. An Anvil Arrow recently destroyed me in my Connie in less than 2 minutes.

I put a Distortion repeater and an HD repeater on my M50, seemed to be a capable combination but a pirate cutlass still one-shot me when i was behind it. Same happened with a Vanguard trolling Olisar, sat below it taking pot-shots at the underbelly and suddenly exploded for no apparent reason.

I don't like combat in this game.

I'm not big on the FPS side of things, but for the ship weapons, I'm a big fan of the Panther repeaters. Mounting 3 of them on an Arrow or Gladius will make short work of most things you'll come up against.

I've found energy shotguns to be a bit of a pain vs npcs on foot. Their charge and time to kill gets out of hand if you start getting swarmed. So i prefer something ballistic currently. On the ship end of it, mounting 4 pyroburst, with improved coolers and you're a beast. You just need to be in something fast like a sabre to get close, so most of the spread impacts the target.
