    I have a couple of these, which I stashed in my inventory. The epic is +1.5% damage to all weapons.

    However, I was thinking about it. Even if you had a shooter with 5 epic weapons, and you filled all your perk slots with 20 of these epic perks, you’d only be getting +30% for your ship.

    That’s not bad, but it’s only equivalent to 4x rare damage perks for BC (as an example), and without any of the flexibility of more specialised perks. You couldn’t run crit perks on your sniper without losing 6% on everything else. On any other ship it’s not even worth considering.

    Is this perk just really underpowered?

    It is intended to mess you up imo. Not many peeps use them.

    Yes I sold my epic universal perks as they are so underwhelming in comparison to the specific perks.
    Best use for them is the gold :)

    Glad this is finally mentioned. This perk is very underpowered.

    Uncommon 0.5%
    Rare 1.0%
    Epic 1.5%

    I'd say double them all at least.
    Uncommon 1%
    Rare 2%
    Epic 3%

    I just want someone to fill every item with these. It would be a beast

    Agreed, they are very underwhelming perks. Most other perks and training are more in the 5-10% range, which is underwhelming enough.

    These and the "ship HP" perks are what I'd consider "filler" - you put them on when you don't have any better perks to fit in their place.

    When playing shooter, I use 6-8 “all weapons perks” on my Napalm and Missiles. Given there are no specific perks for Missiles, I find this great for increasing additional damage for my snipers and big torp.

    When playing Speeder or Defender, I use them on my Flare to increase strength for Ex Cannon.
    Hope this helps.

    That’s an interesting idea. You’d be losing (potentially) 6 seconds of burn duration perks, but you’d gain 6% damage to both guns.

    I’m too lazy to work out which one gives you higher DPS. But I quite like the idea of focusing power into a bigger ExC hit. You can’t really quantify the usefulness of destroying a ship in one hit, that might otherwise have survived on low health.

    Flare gun most definitely would hand out more dps and if he had duration perks he'd be doing more overall damage

    Nearly all of you missed it. The mines are very strong as is. I put them on my epic mine and all the other weapons jump. Not to mention in nightmare we need someone or it's nice at least, to have someone with mines for all the speeders at 4k plus. Just sayin. Happy fishing! =P

    infiltrates and illegally hacks your weapons system, undercover insertion of minor damage boost to damage variables, exfiltrates and covers up all traces

    ok mate, just adds X% boost of all weapons on that ship to it
    e.g. 3% boost perk on a flare will also boost by +3% dmg the BC on the same ship, also all other weps
