I see more mercs than flaks to be honest, especially since half of the pilots are using pyra or goldfish. The one gun that I hardly ever see though is the lumberjack.

Flamethrower/Artemis. Using greased or burst on the missile sling will disable at a longer distance, and destroy the effectiveness of opposing weapons. Get close enough and unload with the greased or heavy clipped flamethrower. With luck, you'll ignite their engines and ruin their turning effectiveness cos they'll be too busy repairing guns and the armor due to rockets/ramming. At that point, they are sitting ducks and your ramming will spin their guns out of arc.

Junker + Full harpoons

ok.... so it's not actually effective and is fairly suicidal to use but it is GOOD for having fun in :D
You never said (exactly) that it had to be good for game play :P

Lumberjack is awesome, I use it on my spire and if you have a good gunner on it you can pop their balloons before they even get close (and keep them popped)

Huh? Heavy has never done anything good for me in a flamethrower. Not to derail this of course.

I think we can all agree that a moonshine ramming squid is the best atm.

All these builds require a higher degree of skill from the pilot, the gunner or both to be more effective than a gat/flack. While it is possible to out fight a gat/flack with many of these builds it is not easy. I occasionally feel bad asking a high level gunner to take the gat, since it is an obvious waste of his/her talents.

I mean, if we want to take a look at the level of skill that is used to gun, even the gat/flak combo needs to have the gunners be in sync for it to be most effective. Generally in a randoms ship you'll have both guns firing at all times instead of waiting for hull to go down before you hit the flak, but it's true that it's probably the least taxing out of all the gun combinations.

Gat banshee is good for harassing light heavy ships (pyra, goldfish), and is amazing for 3v3 support. I use it on my squid.

Gat/Flack is best in my opinion as is Gat and Mort, then there is Gat and Merc, Gat and Flame, Gat and Flare Gun, Gat and Gat with a side of Gat.

Seriously though, Gats peel armor easypeasy like. Anything else is just dmg.

There's plenty of good loadouts beside gat-flak, the problem is that they all require more skill from the gunner or the pilot or both.
Gat-flak is a low risk, high reward loadout.

Next time I pilot I'm going to try a new ramming setup on my Pyra. It'll be a rather interesting one.

Do tell. I use Gat/Merc as my ramming build.

Didn't we use that already in a game though? :P
