I'm fairly sure I know what the "F" in "BFGreen" stands for, and it isn't "very." Vastly deadlier than the BGreen, it is apparently what results when beam cannons are overdriven, as it happened it High Noon. They do the third most sustained damage / second, falling behind the MjolnirBeam and the completely overpowering BFRed.


This beam is massive, no arguments about that. The size of the beam is one reason why I dare not fly too close to the Colossus in High Noon. I readily admit, however, that the sound it gives off is pretty awesome.

Funnily enough, no ship comes with this weapon standard. All occurrences of this gun are via FRED.
