I just remembered why I never used it before, when I had bought Apocalypse when it was new.
It takes 4000 workhours to produce a single bomb for it (not to mention 8000 for the launcher, but at least you can get that for free). That's a grand total of about 5 bombs in exchange for a medium disruptor. You don't even get to recover bombs when you capture UFOs. It's freakin weak! It's not even a better weapon than medium disruptors anyway. Not even against the heaviest armoured UFOs which subtract like 20 damage per shot that hits them (just do the math, RoF is like 1/5th!). It is the same size too, 3x2. Perhaps if it was 4x1 (or even 3x1) it would be interesting, but still worthless because the ammo takes way too long to build. I mean instead of building a Retaliator and arming it with (the 96 required) disruptor bombs (that you also build) you can build like 3 of them armed with medium disruptors that will last you much longer.
Sorry I just had to vent my frustration guys...
