Thread: Are Frag Cannons any use whatsoever?

  1. #1

    Are Frag Cannons any use whatsoever?

    I used these once... or twice... during Gamma or something back in 2014.

    Are they any use at all?

    I figured maybe I'll give them a chance... but they seem useless. Except on something like a Viper MK3 while shooting Asps and Clippers or some other huge target surface at point blank range.

    Does anyone even use them?

    Yes, they are awesome.

    Put two double shot frags on a vulture and have looooots of fun. About 5 minutes, then the ammo is empty

    No seriously, they are really good. I put 3 on my Krait Mission runner, any NPC interdicting me is toast.

    Against big ships they are extremely good at eating hull. You only need to be close enough so all the pellets hit. Put the corrosive effect on something and you dismantle an Anaconda in seconds.

    Absolutely. Recycling another ship has never been so much fun, or as sinful.

    Frag Cannons. Engineered Double shot with 1 with Corrosive, the rest Screening shell.

    Pro's.
    Shreds ships FASTER than anything currently available
    Huge Huge fun
    Guaranteed smile EVERY time you destroy a ship.

    Cons.
    Eats Ammo fast than a fat knacker eating McDonalds burgers
    Your face will ache through to much smiling (See Pro's)

    My Current ships fitted with Frags:

    All Frag Gunship
    All Frag Cutter
    All Frag Chieftain
    Frag/Beam Python.

    Planned Frag Ships:
    Krait
    Challenger

    Astonishing DPS more than makes for much fun.

    I've got a stack load of these fully modded but have only used them briefly. I can see both sides here.

    Always I end up back at Beams+Multi's.

    Frags are my favorite weapons, and most of my ships have some fitted.

    I am curently grinding Elite combat in my Type 10, 4 large lasers for shields and small pray and the rest all Frags... any Mid or Large ship is dismantled in seconds with a big grin on my face.

    You have to get in close to do any damage. But they are amazing fun to use.

    Double-shot is the META, but I'm using efficient frags on my shieldless Krait, and it tears apart NPC Anacondas and Corvettes with ease.

    They are great for assassinations, or other scenarios where you are up against one or few large targets. Preferably in agile/fast ship. Really great, with upgraded ones you can kill cutters/condas/corvettes in seconds.
    Against small targets or in longer fights they are mostly useless though, making ship fitted with them highly specialized.

    The Pacifier Frag-Cannon is even more spanky.

    Do not underestimate Guardian Shard Cannons. they are basically thermal frags. Have them on my Challenger together with a set of normal frags in the other slots. Also put three on an iCourier and it can deal with Anacondas. Frags and shards - fun against a specific selection of targets.

    Interesting....as a lover of Frags i might try these. What do you mean by 'Specific selection of Targets' ?

    Only ships big enough to catch all the pellets. Found FdLs and assault ships are not as quickly toast as, say Pythons, Kraits or Anacondas.

    Yes. yes they are. Any size will make a difference.

    High capacity modded with either corrosive or incendiary rounds, or one of each. Shreds anything that is daft enough to get too close. Generally have one somewhere on all of my brawling ships.
