I recently de-nerfed Gatling Guns in v6.1, since I noticed no one was ever using them. They are still wildly inaccurate, but they do a lot of damage now. Do you have any gatling-type ship designs? You should make some and post them here!

Wait Gatling guns were nerfed?! I use them pramiarly.
Edit: Can a gun have more than one danage typ?
Yes. Cannons, for example, have both blast and piercing damage.
De-nerfed! They've been improved!
I mean before v6.1 lol
This is my third iteration of a 'battle barge'. It initially had a rifle but I found it underwhelming so I tacked on a gatling gun instead. It barely fits under the $200 'fighter' mark and I'm awful proud of it.

Yeah, the gatling gun wasn't really useful since it couldn't go through many armour. I am now interested on how deadly it is now since I haven't looked at the new update.

Designed for one purpose, to outmaneuver enemy ships, surround them and then blast them to smithereens its only shortcoming for this purpose is its low service ceiling other than that it blazes across the map and can rapidly surround anything and as it's used in swarms of 3 or more it very quickly disintegrates AI ships that dare to use wood or light steel armor. Originally i was going to have it be able to land on top of enemy ships, but the already low service ceiling was compounded by adding a keel to the bottom so i decided against it, sadly these are a little ... overzealous in their movements and often crush themselves against whatever they see, especially when moving down or up.
