Don't joust with a TIE swarm. Fly in circles around a tight asteroid field so that he has to break up his formation to chase you. Turrets are tricky because you need to get out of the mindset of "I need to get closer, from the side or rear, to the enemy" that dominates most small ship movement.
My first time out with the Outrider was fucking awesome!!!! Pew! Pew! Asteroids? Ha! Obstacles? Nope! Pew! Pew!
I had a whale of a time with her and can't wait until the store league kicks up again on Thursday
Try out a mangler cannon on your 2400 if you want some serious shits and giggles
