Constructive criticism and feedback is much appreciated, and I hope you find the information useful!

Thanks and have a great day

I. Love. You.

I couldn't find one anywhere. Everyone's just gunnery, gunnery, gunnery. Finally! Gonna watch it right now.

Best regards,

Even though its not made for PVP, I took away some very good tips on heat management, which is the main drawback of using it in PVP... well, aside from the fact that Arsenal is bonkersburst.

The only thing I would ask you: I have to use Thermal Det and Fusion Missile to spread dots. So I typically Serrated to Incendiary, thermal then fusion. Then I net/supercharge, power/mag/unload depending on situation (If I need to move, are they about to eclipse me) and missile blast when they are low. I'll definitely be adding in the TSO in front of the unload on cooldown/as needed.

Knowing that my opener includes both dots, thermal and fusion do you have any comments on heat management? Should I just watch it to stay below 40%?

For PVP dot-spreading scenarios, I would use Incendiary Missile > Serrated > Power Shot > Fusion Missile. Fusion Missile costs the same about of Heat/Energy as Power Shot does, so you could use that instead of your second Power Shot during the "High Heat" portion of your rotation. When it comes to spreading your dot from Serrated Shot, that actually spreads from your Explosive Dart, not your Thermal Detonator... So if it was me, a full AOE type rotation would be something like this >>

Incendiary Missile > Serrated > Power Shot > Fusion Missile > Mag Shot > Explosive Dart > Death From Above (with Thermal Sensor Overide)> Power Shot > Electro Net > Mag Shot

For a more general answer to your question, yes, keep it below 40% heat unless you have your vent heat or other energy regens available.

Bumping this, because IO guides are in short supply, especially good guides like this one.

Saving the link. Always wanted to try this spec, but never found a good guide. You made it super easy to understand.

Thanx

I'm super late to this thread, but thank you. I hope you make more guides. This was easy to follow and informative.
