This is my calculation of Blaster vs Code Gate. Numbers are from the wiki.

The results are in terms of the number of seconds needed to take down the Code Gate given only a single Blaster. Assumed no regeneration for simplicity, so actual time may be higher. Results aren't rounded to the 3.5 seconds charge time per attack. Results do not include installation time.

TimeNeeded = Firewall / ((1 - Filter) * BlasterDPS)

[Removed because the calculations were misleading. Sorry about that!]

In conclusion, it seems like there is definitely a dropoff of the effectiveness of the Blaster. There is no data for level 20 and level 21 Blaster, but through interpolation, a level 21 Blaster vs a level 21 Code Gate may take roughly 20 seconds longer than a level 5 Blaster vs a level 5 Code Gate.

All of your numbers seem to be wrong. You're off by about 5 to 10 seconds. I guess install time and firewall regen makes a big difference :S

The magic number when using blaster or 3x beams against code gate is 4. Just remember that and you will be fine.

Never mind, I am wrong. The regeneration makes a pretty big difference.

Sorry about that!

Have finally got round to pushing forward that update in my calculator. Calculator now takes Blasters, Shurikens, Beams, Battering Rams, Regen and Blaster Stun into account :)

Good job Mr. Wiki.

Now if I wasn't so lazy and actually bothered to use it...

Cool, thanks everyone. And I'll check out that calculator once I feel like installing that office program I guess. Looks good though Mr. Wiki.
