AC's are very effective. The rule of thumb seems to be that if you carry one UAC5, go ahead and make it 2.
PPC's are more effective now too, but still hard to justify the heat as much as I'd like to run them. Pretty much need ER PPC's to make it worth it since everyone likes to play bumper cars. You need them effective up close even more than the extra distance.
I still prefer beam weapons, I'm already carrying ammo for missiles. That's enough blow up risk, and I usually need the torso for double heatsinks.
I may give that a shot on my 1X, just to do something different. I do like the AC20 on there though.
