What's the difference between standard and dogfight weapons?
I've always wondered.  I know dogfight is meant for multiplayer, but I don't know why...

I know that much.  I mean, qualitatively, how are they different, and how does that affect your choice of which weapon to take?

The ultra-long-range weapons (maxim, the most apparent one) had a large reduction in range and strength. Reduction to 2.5k-ish range, with lvl 6-ish hull damage and lvl 2-ish shield damage.

Their values were adjusted to dogfight with so everyone had a better chance.

Re: What's the difference between standard and dogfight weapons?
Not only the long-range weapons, the Subach HL7 and Mekhu HL7's dogfight variants have scaled down damage values (They apparently have level 2 hull and shield damage :wtf: ) and their rates of fire have been upped. Same goes for other weapons.

Which, i'm sure, is why everyone grabs a Morning star with their weapons. It seems to be the most powerful laser in multiplayer when you combine it with a weak laser or something. One, if you do it right the enemy can't fire back, and two, it takes out shields in no time flat.

I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

The Mekhu is the best dogfight weapon, I think, from the numbers, though you can double check me in the wiki.

Nothing beat a Morning Star/Tempest combo though, especially when Susanna or anyone else decided to dogfight in a Sekhmet.

Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

I thought it was that weak ship's weapons were made better, and better ships weapons were made worse?

Re: What's the difference between standard and dogfight weapons?
Here are driffences:
- Subach and Mekhu became the best Dogfight weapons (scaled up damage)
- other primary weapons have got scaled down damage
- there are also some driffences in secondary weapons, however i must look at the tables to see what exactly they're driffent than normal variants.
If in your opinion there's no difference beetwen "Master Game" and "Game Master", I can only feel for you.

DW-Susanna, With her Boots,......... :D :pimp: :nod: ;7

She taught me the sekhmet wisdom. Best choice for RI or corvette dual.
