Limited Ship

This ship is a limited ship, and could only be acquired for a limited time or it has since become limited.
You lose it forever once it is destroyed.

The Blizzard is a hull-shredding Carrier given to players on completion of the Ice Monster's Quest from the Christmas Event 2017.

Old Blizzard Model

Description

The Blizzard was a part of the Christmas Event 2017. It was the first and only Carrier to have only Dragonflies for its Fighters until they were replaced with its own custom fighters in a later version. The ship was obtained as a reward after completing The Ice Monster's Quest, which has since been removed. Once you lose this ship it is gone, FOREVER! (Unless you lost it to a bug, glitch, or dock-blocking).

Interior

Contains a rectangle-like seat that looks out into the front of the ship.

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Bad positioning means not all Turrets can target at once.
  • Fighters lack strength in health and firepower.
  • Low hull health for a Carrier.
  • Lackluster damage at long range.
  • Lacks in Shield damage.
  • No Spinals.
  • Limited event ships are often targeted by Pirates  and are often seen as a prize kill.
  • You can't get it back once it is destroyed or sold.

Strategy

  • Warp in, release Fighters, warp out, and wait until the base is hulled to finish the job.
  • Make sure you have a team that will listen to you and pilot the fighters.
  • If your target is hulled, your Medium Flak Cannons can rapidly finish them off.

Version History

  • The ship was renamed due to the quest being broken.
  • Received a remodel in .61e.
  • Received several changes in .65b. including a health buff that buffed Shield from 2500 to 3750, and Hull from 2000 to 4500. Its Flak Cannons were replaced with Dual Cannons. The fighters replaced with IceFyres.
  • Cannons reverted back to Flak Cannons in version .65b.
  • Health increased from 3750/4500 to 8000/5000 in version .68d.

Trivia

  • This was the first Christmas Event 2017 limited ship.
  • Was the only carrier to exclusively have Dragonflies.
  • The Blizzard was originally named the Snowstorm, but the name was changed.
  • Due to the name of the ship being changed, the error message "This model is too big for Roblox to handle" was displayed as a placeholder. This has since been fixed.
  • Many players sold the Blizzard to gain more Credits; however, most of them didn't realize that it was gone forever.
  • The second holiday-themed event ship that was obtained through a quest, the first being the Reaper.
  • Currently, the Blizzard is worth more credits than the Reaper.
  • The second event Carrier, the first being the Ghoul Nyx.
  • This ship cannot be sold, but it's value is about 527k.
    • Funny enough, back in the days when this was available, the ship was deemed weak and so it was sold by a lot of the people who got it back then, for about 40k.
  • The remodeled version has an orb at the front of the ship, similar to the Vansnova, Reaper, and the Grim.
  • The original Blizzard model was meant to be a Revelation remodel made by ARiNA.
  • The original model resembles the Damocles from Rebel Galaxy.
  • Currently the rarest event carrier in the game.
