    Do you even play enforcer? Your analysis seems purely theoretical to me. Perhaps even if you have played enforcer, you must be one of those people who only built turbos, overboost, nitro on an enforcer and played it like a speeder just to have a 3 weapon speeder?.

    Enforcers are certainly not like speeders and it's way better at positioning simply by virtue of having excellent reverse acceleration which alone enables it to be a better distraction ship than even speeder

    Mk4 has the same set up as a speeder but at higher mk levels the set up is completely different, it cam hold 3 1 slot weapons, 2 2 slot and 1 1 slot control items and 2 1 slot passive items. There maybe a few players who do not utilize all the slots they are provided by using overboost or something but let's not go there now.

    Enforcer, if built right can destroy speeders and one of the biggest reasons it appears that speeders have an edge I believe is cause there are not enough enforcers at higher level game play to counter them.

    We need more decent enforcers who don't try to play it like speeder. Only more enforcers can stop this speeder meta I believe. Whenever I play speeder, I simply don't even try to get away from the team if the opposing team has an enforcer. I have met a few enforcers, they can take me out in like 30 seconds tops and it's like they aren't even sweating. I can't counter, can't run, can't do nothing.

    Good enforcers are terrifying. Widow Maker and Thunder Sword know what's up. I might actually play enforcer one day if I get the gear.

    Please use frost launcher as one of the items, highly under used and extremely useful against speeders.

    I can hit speeders with standard mortars by leading my shots and I suck, I'm sure Porthos can hit them with a frost launcher

    Euhm, You sure you have no trouble hitting speeders with mortar? I can also hit speeders with my big bertha... If I'm lucky. 95% of the time I just completely miss. And the other 5% I just hit for little damage. No matter your skill, you just can't reliably hit speeders with mortars. Are you sure you weren't exagerating?

    big berta is almost impossible to hit speeders because it's terribly slow compared to other mortars(frost launcher has double radius and after obtaining perft crew perks has about 50% increase. In projectile speed) . However having said that i use long range mortar (the fastest one), the only time i remember hitting them to speeder is when the person using it is a noob.
    From my experience it doesn't help, considering that the speeders at higher infamy have terrific turbos and Overboost, i don't think it helps. You can't deny frost launcher also has fast projectile and a fairly good radius,yet if the speeders hits the edge it doesn't matter much because the speed decrease is won't be that significant.

    Damn right I have issues but I can still hit them, it's not as hard ad you say it is, especially with lrm.

    As for big bertha, you can't even hit shooters with that, forget speeders, that thing is slow as fudge.

    I'm not high level so I can not comment, however even if you can't slow down speeders, you can still freeze every other ship, not a big deal but helps if you use mortar and torp, makes it easier to land and does extra dmg.

    You blind bruh, I just said it works on everything else but speeders, and for your information it is possible to hit mk4 speeders with mortars and torps if they were frosted.

    it's not really useful against speeder, it's useful for player not able to leadshot(joke inside).

    Don't try to use Frost Launcher against a speeder. Might work once in a while, but a mediocre speeder could easily dodge it. Frost Blaster, on the other hand, turns speeders into squishy little targets.

    No speeder could dodge a well placed frost launcher. The radius is enormous and the flight time is like a grenade launcher. Have you even tried using frost launcher?
