The Cyclops is a siege-focused Dreadnought that is primarily focused on hull damage.


The Cyclops was the first siege Dreadnought to be added into the game. It has decent Shields and 8 Heavy Cannons for shredding Hull. There is a Vanguard Coalition logo at the back of the entrance room.


When you first enter the interior using a teleporter on the back, you are greeted with a room that has 4 chairs and computers. There is also a large hologram of a planet in the middle of the room. There are two small hallways to the bridge. The seat somewhat resembles that of the old Prototype X-2, but blue.


  • Powerful Spinals do extra Hull damage in addition to Turrets.
  • Fairly flat for its size potentially helping in dodging incoming fire when facing directly away or toward an enemy.
  • Good firing arcs.
  • Great Hull damage.


  • Vulnerable bottom.
  • Cannot defend itself from small Ships too well.
  • Lacks Shield damage
  • Very sluggish mobility, can be outmaneuvered by ships with high maneuverability easily.
  • Performs poorly at PvP due to the sluggish maneuverability and poor overall damage output compared to other Dreadnoughts.


  • Use this for finishing off hulled Starbases.
  • Try and find an ally with a Zeus or Sagittarius as the combination will rip through both Shield and Hull.
  • Can be used to fend off other Dreadnoughts in an anti-siege. The starbase will cripple enemy shields, letting this ship decimate the weakened attackers with its high hull damage.
