A punchy small ship

Hello evry1. I tried hard to past that ground PVE with Elachi ground Mech to fight against... and really liking my wounds after that... so...

It is my desire, to have a punchy small ship... now I have a fed shuttle and a Runabout...

Can I equip them normal ships stuff like a matter antimatter reactors or the weapons etcetera ?

I suppose the best choice between the two is the Runabout... what is the best equipment I could give it ti make it punchy ?

In the end maybe it is best to get rid of both and acquire a real punchy small ship, and if yes, what one ?

    You can. In short? You can put regular weapons on your shuttle. Playing a klink, and feeling annoyed? Load a bio-neural warhead and ONE-SHOT the walkers once their shields drop. Feddies have their own awesome stuff they can add to their ships. Heck: You can be sassy and fly around with the omnidirectional antiproton beam weapon and the cutting beam. Or play a fighter pilot with dual heavy cannons and a plasma torpedo. Load up high yield and watch those numbers fly!

    The Runabout is good enough for the few times you actually use it.

    I seriously don't think there is enough content in the game for Shuttles to justify the purchase.

    Starship Equipment can go on Shuttles.

    @bogardan Isn't the Omnidirectional Antiproton array a Episode reward and available to everyone?
    I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001. :confused:
    If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
    When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

    Cryptic stopped to develop small craft content long ago, so everything about it is half-arsed. Like the other posters said, you can equip everything on shuttles. There are special equipment types for shuttles (the "-S" items), but those are of no use basically since upgraded versions were never developed and the devs just thought "TRIBBLE that, nobody's going to buy that" ;)

    The free runabout is more than enough for every small craft content you will encounter which is a total of 4 missions in the entire game I believe.

    I am aware of that... but there is a ground mission in which you have to repel an Elachi invasion done with giant mechs flying a shuttle that is hard to complete... I never did finish it in fact, because the best shuttle I had was a cardboard box there...

    Well, the regular runabout you can get for free or for EC (I hope it doesn't cost dil, I haven't purchased a small craft since before F2P :D) is the toughest small craft in the game (tying only with the refit yellowstone). I would fit it with DBBs, beam overload and a punchy torpedo like the hargh'peng or rep topedoes for that mission and you should be good :)

    Buying a c-store small craft is a waste, really. None of them will get more hull and the peregrine offers only a bit more firepower for even less defense.
