Hello all, was wondering if when using a retribution to go out rat hunting it was better to use beams or pulse? I have seen threads for the retri and even the crusader that recommend either but there is no clear solution. Any help? Thanks.

I would use pulse... You don't really need the range especially if you're fighting bigger ships, you want to be in close. I believe the only reason people ever recommend beams for a crusader is PvP when you're trying to stay out of web range. To me beams is a big no-no on a crusader, lower damage... way more cap usage... less tracking.

I tend to have cap/damage issues whenever I stick beams on my retribution, even with assault ship 5 and high cap skills.

Another thing, does the Crusader outperform the Retribution as a low security rat hunter? Thanks for the reply.

For blowing up NPC's? absolutly not, reti owns crusader at killing npc's.

as for fittings, pulse, when your npc'ing in retri against cruiser/bs, you need to either get under there guns or keep transvesal up as high as possible, or else you die.
btw the webber frigs are your worst emeny, kill them first.

A retri with 4x Medium Pulse II can deal insane damage, and still reach out to 14km with Microwave S, further with Radio etc.

Can the retribution handle the 0.0 BS spawns ok? How long to take down a pair of BS's?

From my experience, a retribution can easily take most 0.0 BS spawns against angels (as they don't hit you if you keep your transversal up, and with 2 HS II you can have the damage (eventually)). Against Sansha's your hit more often but can still easily tank them indefinately as long as you know what you are doing.

I used pulses. It would take down the 0.0 BS's eventually, but was a bit too slow compared to the apoc.

hay im based in 0.0 now to awnser yr question. well it depends on the bs they come in different sections. the 500k bs are easy around 5min in my maller. reti would be quicker ifu got skills. but the 1mil bs well they got a good tank on them. takes me around 10 mins. but a retubution will own any 0.0 rat. i can do 3/4 hours of ratting in a maller easy. a retubution well be so so so good.
