Neutralisers are the best damage type.

Most people tend to use kin/therm, on armor the EM resist is decent enough with a EANM II fitted, and Explosive is high on shield, so if you end up in a situation with a where ships are doing explosive damage, take them out sooner rather than later.

And that is why I never fit EX or EM hardeners on my PVP ships ;)

That said, I do also pack therm/kin because I fly gallente.

EM is probably the best damage type to be doing, it instantly takes out shield on the t1 armor tankers, and they often neglect to fit EM hardeners. In fact, on t2 gallente ships it's probably one of the lowest armor resists, and the same goes with any shield tankers bar Minmatar t2.

Kin/Therm is usually the norm for PVE - but PVP is just "throw whatever you have at them" style.

Everyone knows the true best damage type is "Nerf" though.

There are no resists, it strikes true with no effect from any number of variables and although it can't destroy a ship, it damages the ship class across the entire galaxy.

Scary stuff.

Fill your opponent with anger. Lots of!

It's the best ammo around, has them make mistakes, even Concordocked if you're lucky... Laughing

Thermal or Explosive.

I'd go with Thermal myself, generally is just great against everything.

Thermal all the way! We gallente aren't 'hot' without it (badumtish)

Depends what ship im flying and the bonuses. My Night hawk gives kin bonus so i use kin in pvp for that but in general i use EM for most things.

The better question would be what is the best weapon system?

Then I'd say lasers.

When using missiles, I always use the one that gets the damage bonus. This is more than enough on some ships to make it the top damage round regardless of resists.

With everything else though it's based on range, you choose your damage type based on the ship you bring.
