i usually use it for cleanup and thats it.
Kracken to make way, Shuriken and IceWall+Protector to secure, Worms to clean up, with the ocassional blaster/battering ram for the odd gate that wandered away from the way to the net connection to the core.

same for networks that dont protect core, just more shurikens and the occasion whrat in both case.
