The Scourge was a unique AI ship added during the Halloween Event 2020

Description

The Scourge is the Halloween Event 2020 equivalent of the Alien Punisher.

Armament

The Scourge is armed with 3 Huge/Large(?) Cannons, and 8(?) Custom Cannon Turrets. It is not that powerful on its own; it cannot fire its turrets directly ahead because of a bad mounting angle. This is the assumed reason for its secondary spinal weapons.

Strategy

The Scourge has a huge blind spot behind it. By exploiting this blind spot, some players have been able to solo it with nothing but a Frigate or Destroyer (like an Aura) Doing so allows players to solo these ships and keep their loot to themselves.

As with Alien Servs and Punishers, distractions with small, fast ships like the Viper and Draco are effective ways to draw this ship's fire while pest-controller ships with high-accuracy turrets deal all the damage.

It is relatively easy to brute force the kill with any ship, as there is a blind spot directly behind it where it cannot shoot you.

Loot

  • Ore: 425 Silicate, 344 Carbon, 224 Iridium, 11 Adamantite, 30 Palladium, 17 Titanium, 17 Quantium, and 5 Uranium.
  • 10 Gamma Pumpkins.

Version History

  • Gamma pumpkin drop rate nerfed in version .69a1 20 -> 15
  • Buffed in version .69b5, being able to call Alien Servs to help it against enemies.
