heavy carranade
« on: August 03, 2013, 11:56:39 am »
this weapon needs some serious balanceing.  useing heavy clip it can 1 shot destroy any component, it destroyed balloons faster than anything els ( though it was origianally ment to be used to do this ) and it can also destroy armor faster than any other weapon. the only draw backs being its a heavy weapon and it has slightly less range than the chain gun.

its too strong all around for a weapon thats ment to be a specialist balloon popper

For a second I had to make sure this wasn't The Pit.

Heavy Carronade is very very strong now due to recent changes in the way certain ammo types work however in my opinion it's balanced due to the fact that few ships can use it, it is easily destroyed itself and it's range is relatively short. 

Like all heavy weapons though it is extremely powerful in the right hands.

A Drogue Chute helps a bit, but yes, it hurts like hell.

I find the best counter is to stay below them since that Carronade can't aim down too well. Keep an eye out for the ship using it, keep your guns pointed towards it. If you can't escape, make sure you're at least doing some damage back, otherwise you're helpless without the help of an ally.

If it manages to get close.

A merc and a decent gunner can do some serious damage to a Goldfish or Spire carrying the Carronade.

If one manages to sneak up on you, or you find yourself in a situation without any disabling weapons, than yea, it's pretty easy to get screwed over by.

If you see one flying towards you, just counter it like you would counter a shotgun in any other shooter: stay the hell away from it.
