What's the point of using anything other than the Particle Cannon?
Seriously. The Particle Cannon does better than every other weapon in the entire game, what's the point of not using it over others?

There isn't - the game is just not very well balanced.

You can still do fine with beams as your main weapon, though, as the final one (fusion beam, I believe), does such incredible damage that it's not even funny anymore. Equipping a Manta Ray full of them is a special sort of fun.

Also, lower difficulty levels probably allow you to beat the game with any other weapon combos, but I haven't checked that.

Yeah, the Fusion Beam is the beam equivilent of the Particle Cannon, damaging everything equally, but it's a bigger power hog I believe.

Basically, yeah, get Particle Cannons and you're sorted.

You could try modding. Plenty of balance mods out there I'm sure. I just made my own to tweak beams a bit and increase the viability of mssiles, bombs, mines and fighters.

I use the mass driver quite a bit too. Longer range and it shreds large armored ships like a plasma cutter through a moon burger.

i use the particle cannons on the smaller mounts to help drop the shields with the leech and ion emitters. and alongside the mass drivers ships go down in seconds

Actually, some of the other weapons can be quite a bit more effective.

Combining EBCs with Cloak, can be devestating.

Or Leech Beams combined with Fusion Beams, can be great too; prevents enemy from retaliating and provides the energy to keep the beams constantly going.

Combining Disruptors with Cloak, and waiting for an ally to drop their shields, and you can quickly obliterate any target with ease.

Its missiles that people generally avoid, as they aren't very useful most of the time.

Yeah. I found that Torpedoes+Bombs+SRM can just destroy everything.
