You need either Blaster, Battering Ram, or high level Beam Cannons to go through it.

Anything you're confused about specifically?

Antivirus originate from Sentries and spread to other nodes. Any node with Antivirus fully installed attacks back with the antivirus, even if they're not security nodes. So it's very useful. Level it before all else.

I disagree. You should provide well thought out arguments for this type of things.

Shuriken is actually quite op in its ways too... They can be used to musk with attack priorities... Also if they attack two nodes at once, they are reducing the time to attack..

True but they'll always need more protection since all nodes will keep attacking until captured. Beams reduce pressure on their node by quickly taking out nodes one at a time. Also this way you can quickly expand your attack to other nodes.
Also remember that the thing you'll be spending most of your bcoins will always be ice walls. The less ice walls you use in a hack the more coins you'll earn(since you won't need to spend as much to replace used ice walls)

6.Shuriekins need a buff
1. use two blasters on each gate and they'll go down in no time
2. Which part?
3. Just focus on upgrading your programs properly. They'll go down eventually.
4. Sentries are ESSENTIAL for good def. Tip: keep one high lvl sentry and one-two at most lvl1 sentries to speed up av spread. Keep the high lvl one about halfway through your net.
5. Already answered.
6. They can hack multiple nodes at same time. If they were as strong as beams beams would be useless. It's up to you which attack style you use. Shurikens can bypass centipede stile choke points.

Theories m8. Shuriken is stupidly strong and fast. Also gl beaming down a gate 16+ on a guardian anti beam choke.

I imagine that was the original idea.
However, Shuriken 21 does as much damage as Beam Cannon 20.
The damage of level x Shuriken is just level x - 1 Beam Cannon.

So as a result, Beams doesn't really reduce pressure all that much at all.
Add to the fact that the current meta usually forces Beams to attack a Code Gate while 2 weak nodes attack with just Antivirus, Shuriken actually ends up reducing pressure more than beams.
