Nothing against you, but this is impossible. Heavy lasers fire at a rate of two per second and don't do nearly enough damage to two-shot anything ever (otherwise bombers would be even more ridiculous, and people would notice that because everyone's looking for reasons to call bombers ridiculous). There's no way any strike fighter can do enough damage in two shots with any laser to take someone from full hull and full shields all the way to dead without support from allies or missiles.
Oh, absolutely. Burst cannons crit for over 1600, and slug railguns crit for an even 2400. Both of those numbers are before powerups.
Heavy lasers, though? Not a chance, not without damage overcharge.
And that's why I'm pissed off and confused.
I didn't think it was possible for a strike fighter to two-shot another strike fighter. And there were no missiles involved at all.
But who knows? Maybe there was a gunship hovering just in range and shot me while he was firing.
He was definitely using heavy lasers/something of that ilk. They were coming from the tips of his wings. Large beams. Slow firing.
