The Dragonfly is a weak but extremely fast Fighter that spawns in a player starbase. and is the fastest fighter in the game. It used to be in the Lucifer station, but now spawns at starbases.



Description

The Dragonfly was the first Fighter added into the game and was originally a ship that was spawnable by players. It is currently the game's fastest Fighter, with the second smallest health pool, and one of the three Fighters to have a Small Cannon as a weapon, the others including the Nixesion and Blitz. This fighter used to only spawn on Lucifer Station, before it and the Unarmed Envoy were replaced by the Xenophile and Striker.

It now only spawns in level 2+ starbases, with 2 dragonflies sharing a rather small fighter bay with 2 Starbase Furies.

Appearance

Like all fighter class ships, the Dragonfly has little in the way of an interior.

Advantages

  • Very quick.
  • Can weaken Hull so teammates can finish them off.
  • Is the fastest fighter in the game.

Disadvantages

  • Low damage.
  • Hard to aim at moving ships.
  • Smaller spinal count than the Starbase Fury.

Strategy

  • As the fastest non-limited ship in the game, this ship is fantastic for distracting base fire. Even open fire from many ships will not be able to hit this from time to time.
  • Work with other Fighters to harass large ships.
  • This ship is weak against almost everything alone, so it is better as a distraction.
