Blasters - Solo / Smallgang PvP

With neuts being so popular and being fitted to all different kinds of ships, you never really know what might have neuts fitted until it’s too late - I feel like blasters are just not worth it in Solo / Smallgang situations?

On paper rail kiting fits seem to yield a much higher success rate - even if in some cases that just translates to being able to escape/warp away from something you know can catch you or get under your guns - this is something you can actually use knowledge and judgement to determine, unlike neuts.

Am I right?


A gnosis with blasters in the face would beg to differ with your point of view.
HOWEVER, many people are running with projectiles because of this very issue.

Only ever had this happen once, and it was against a dragoon which had neut bonuses (Didnt know that at the time), threw on autocannons to my algos instead, but eventually reverted back to blasters unless i had fitting issues because the DPS is much better.
