Are Blasters worth it?

Postby Danic » Tue Mar 06, 2018 1:08 pm

Having watched countless attacks on my network, and seen individuals persist with Blasters, are they really worth it?

Theybdont seem to inflict too much damage to nodes and they seem to take a really long time to fire. Admittedly, I haven't seen a blaster past level 9, so maybe they haven't been upgraded enough?

Does anyone have any thoughts? I know plenty of people still use them.....

Blasters or Kraken are the only reasonable ways to get through a well upgraded, Triple Guardian Core quickly. They can tear through all but the highest level Code Gates just fine, and they compile faster than Rams. Plus you can use them for extra DPS, stunning, and preventing the regeneration of firewall in difficult choke points.

In places where my protector has trouble, using two well timed blasted made the difference.
