The Blizzard is a powerful Carrier that was introduced in the Christmas Event 2017, but was re-introduced in the Christmas Event 2022.

Description

The Blizzard is an extremely large Carrier that carries 4 Unique IceFyre Fighters.

This Ship excels at being a flagship in a fleet due to it's health, firepower, and speed, and the diversity of Turrets it has, having extremely high turret firepower for a Carrier.

Appearance

The Blizzard is one of the largest and widest ships in the game, even bigger than some Super Capital Ships. and dwarfing every other Carriers in size.

The Ship has a futuristic, snow theme with many, many complex detailings around it. On its back has a large amount of engines, along with 2 extremely large fins around its side, supporting the ship. On the sides can be seen the 2 Hangars with each carrying 2 IceFyre fighters. On the front has its signature yellow ball, which was a reference to its previous model.

Its interior sports a large room with many icy decorations like icicles on its ceiling. There are 3 Seats, with the middle being the pilot seat.

Advantages

  • Large health pool.
  • Despite it's size, it is fast with a top speed of 80
  • Has very high firepower for a carrier, allowing it to destroy other large Capital Ships even without the assistance of its fighters.
  • Can support itself very well even without its Fighters.
  • Has long range turrets with a range of up to 6800.
  • Fighters can shred shields from their spinals.
  • Great for supporting fleets with its high health and large firepower.

Disadvantages

  • Large Blindspots underneath and on the back of the ship.
  • Extremely Large, making it very easy to hit with spinals and any turrets.
  • Struggles to fire all turrets at once, unless pointing directly at its target.
  • Limited carrier, making you a large target.

Strategy

  • Do not use this ship alone. If you do so, travel with a heavy escort that you can trust.
  • When fighting with the Blizzard, try and stay pointed to your opponent so all your turrets have a line of sight.
  • If you have to fight, stay below and pointed at the enemy so majority of your turrets can fire, and take down AA Ships with your turret firepower like the Ampharos and Hyron which can shred your Fighters.
  • Beware of swarms of small Ships that can overwhelm the Blizzard.
