    Okay so update 4.0 and friends really messed me up.
    My max infamy was 1200 with a mk2 fixer, but now I am playing shooter, and am level 21, but my shooter is only 15. (I'm working on leveling it)
    Was at about 800 infamy before, but am now plummitting to (probably) below 400...
    Any tips? @TheAntiSnipe?

    Sigh... Most of the unfriends I'm fighting are level 40, with 8k health.

    I'll go a little offtopic here but bear with me.

    You know what I see with every single successful shooter main? Their builds talk for them.

    Look at Bittersteel, his build goes, "You'll find yourself being tormented from above and below, any range you choose." AmericanMarauder's main shooter build: "I'll overwhelm you with sheer damage from the game's finest in burst tech." Or Z E T T O N, "You can run but you can't escape my rails."

    So tell me. What do you want your build to speak?

    I have you where I want you
    Or
    By the time you get to me, its too late.

    I ran mine instead of RG in the event, because I was actually fighting level 20- ships

    Edit: I'm saving big torps, I might swap RG for a Big torp

    In that case, what you need is chainers at long range, and light burst up close.

    There's only one heavy burst class at long range, so I'd recommend double RG FB double blast, so that you can pound down huge burst from afar, chain it, and be ready for them up close when needed.

    However, I must warn you, you'll suffer when the routine is broken.

    I'm not a fan of RG, it's too situational. And I love napalm and sniper too much to give up.
    Can you think of builds with sniper and napalm? Meanwhile, let me get you some replays to anilize.

    I've only watched the ranked ones but looking at them a couple of things that I noticed. I thought you would have a fruit themed name though..
    First of all definitely consider getting your gear ship shape and perked up because you did land some nice shots but for weak damage and as you mentioned you faced though opponents. You seem to be going for a long range build though you are sometimes missing your sniper shots. You could add ballpark, FB or missiles to swap a sniper or that ex cannon.
    Do remember to use napalm towards crowds, I saw that you launched it at one ship and it would have been better to shoot it at crowds, or maybe it was because you didn't have a long range? If you are going for a combo style equip a flare. RG should be used when you have a crisp, clear view of the unfriends, not when you are under a wave.

    Not a complete shooter expert but that's my 2 cents.

    Here are the items I want FOR SURE on my final build: Sniper, ExC, and Napalm
    I used to be Rogue Blueberry ingame, but then I switched accounts, and I liked the feel of Ow! so I went with it.
    I have been neglecting training to get this gear leveled, and as a result, I ran out of parts, and used my ship leveling gold for parts. This gear works perfectly fine against ships of the same caliber as me.
    Sniping is one of the only way to advance with an under powered ship. I want to evolve my build into a versatile range, though it is already good (minus the RG) at mid range or even close if I'm not the only target. I'm thinking of using BT instead of RG to be honest.
    No-one is perfect. ;)
    Fist off I need that ExC for mid/close range, and I just really like it, second, I like dual snipers, and would be reluctant to give one up, though I would consider it for a ballpark.
    Third, Sniper+Sniper+ExC+FB/Missiles+Napalm, not a bad idea.
    I know, I have over a million napalm damage (over 2 accounts), but I don't have any range perks as of yet.
    Watch one of the TDM replays.
    Yup. And I use it to keep ships with a common goal apart.
    Though about it, usually napalm and my team is enough.
    Yeah, I know, but sometimes I will use it just because I have two snipers and napalm to use while it cools down. A shot not taken always misses. :p
    Thanks, it was sound advice. :cool:

    What does my build say about me?
    I'm really curious.

    Don't mess with me after my owner brushes his teeth:p

    Jokes aside, it says, "You may think this is a spammer build... Well, it is... But this spammer has fangs:cool:"

    Well, I honestly don't know how to feel about that... It's like a backhanded compliment.

    @Rogue Blueberry Sorry, I included my reply in the quote. The point is still valid though. ;)

    I know, thats what I'm doing and have been doing, it's just with the update, the level of gear to infamy spiked, now I'm losing with the same gear.
    I've scrapped scrapped scrapped and I'm still out of rare parts, I'm saving pearls for a epic chest.

    I would instead use those pearls to speed the training of your favorite / potentially highest level weapon. (Looks like it’s sniper cannon.) This will have the most immediate noticeable effect in the battles and will probably be more helpful overall in the long run than an epic chest, imho. Good luck.

    Yeah, spending those pearls on shield training isn’t a bad idea either.

    N.O.
    No no no.
    NO.
    I refuse.
    First, I use it for area control and love it.
    Second, my cannons don't do fire damage yet.
    Third, I don't have any fire damage perks
    Fourth, even if I did I would us napalm for my combo, because napalm and teammate firebomb spam is usually enough.

    Edit: Flare+sniper+ExC+Missiles+Napalm doesn't sound too bad does it?
