The Armageddon is a hull-focused Dreadnought with powerful weaponry but low maneuverability.


Description

The Armageddon has the fourth-highest Hull health of any Dreadnought in the game, which makes it a fantastic Hull tank. The main centerpiece of the ship is the orb at the front, which is where the Spinals come from.

Appearance

The interior is a simple but detailed room containing a teleporter from the front of the ship and the pilot's seat.

Advantages

  • Has very high overall firepower, being able to destroy ships faster than any other non-Limited or non-Advanced ship, with the exception of Super Capitals.
  • Fourth highest Hull health in the class, being beaten by the Slipstream, Atlas, and Blackgate.
  • Powerful Spinals that fire very quickly.

Disadvantages

  • Large size makes landing hits on it very easy.
  • Low maneuverability.
  • Very weak Shield health.
  • Vulnerable bottom.
  • Rather poor turret placing; difficult to fire all of them at once, unless you're pointing directly at your target.
  • Poor accuracy leaves it vulnerable to smaller, faster ships.
  • Shield damage relies heavily on Spinal aim.
  • Hull-breakers like the Ridgebreaker, Leviathan, Hawklight and Borealis can easily destroy this ship, or force it to retreat.
  • Due to an update, this ship is no longer the cheapest, and is now above 200 Thousand credits in price.

Strategy

  • This ship is best suited to fighting similar size ships, as its Large Turrets have low chance of hitting small Ships.
  • Make use of the Armageddon's powerful Spinals whenever you get the chance, as you may not win a fight without them.
  • Avoid ships such as the Ridgebreaker, Avalon and the Osiris as they have anti-Hull weaponry that can easily shred through the Hull of the Armageddon.
