Overview[edit | edit source]

Sweeping Strikes is an excellent tactical ability when used correctly. It doesn't have a high chance to expose, but if used in a pack of enemies it has a chance to expose each one of them. This ability deals about three times more damage than a melee weapon, and is THE best melee damage dealer, making melee weapons a pointless concept. This ability can deal even more damage than a gun, doing about 190-250 damage on unshielded elite Borg drones, if you have abilities such as Vulcan Physical Strength and Physical Augmentation Armor. Note: Do to the fact it can hit multiple targets at once. This is a great ability to use solo in the Defera invasion Zone Mission : Peer Pressure
