This article describes the NPC ship. for the weaker, player-obtainable vessel, see Chimera.

The Chimera-S is a friendly U.N.E ship that passively hunts Kneall ships.



Description:

The Chimera-S is an upgrade to the standard Chimera Destroyer. It is, however, an AI ship and cannot be acquired by players. It has substantially more health and firepower and a higher top speed than its build menu counterpart, though it has less acceleration. It appears to be a newer version of the Chimera that is currently in U.N.E service.

Behavior:

The Chimera-S is often seen wandering around the map until it encounters a Kneall ship. If it encounters one, it will start to attack that ship, regardless of how big said ship is, calling for reinforcements as it does so. The Chimera-S alone could beat a Swarmer or even be a match for the Bruiser, however it is no match for a Punisher, but the Chimera-S may stand a chance when it calls in reinforcements.

Strategy

Allow the Chimera-S to distract the Alien ships, while attacking them from further away than the Chimera-S, allowing you to remain mostly undamaged.

Loot
