The Erebus is a Dreadnought added during the Halloween Event 2019.



Description

The Erebus is a Dreadnought from the Halloween Event 2019 with high firepower and a resemblance to the Grim.

This ship excels at diving Ships and being a powerhouse in a fleet due to its firepower.

Appearance

The Erebus is a mid-sized Dreadnought with a unique, complex, spiky and symmetrical appearance that stands out from other Dreadnoughts. On its front are 4 Orbital turrets and many spinal barrels sticking out centered around its most defining feature being its almost hollow center full of orbs.

The Erebus has a cylindrical shaped interior with a pilot seat that has a granite texture.

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Large blindspot behind the ship.
  • Inaccurate turrets have difficulty hitting anything smaller than a Battlecruiser.
  • Spinal firing arcs are spread apart, making it difficult to hit small targets.
  • Will be hunted due to it being expensive and limited.

Strategy

  • Aim at your target and unleash all spinals to deal massive damage.
  • When fighting other ships, use your high mobility to try and work your way into your enemy's weak points and blindspots.
  • Use this ship's extreme maneuverability to cover for your blindspot and allow you to aim faster targets with your spinals.
  • Don't travel alone on this ship during heavy wars, this ship will get targeted because it is a limited ship and it is really expensive.
  • Use it if you are sure the risks are not too big, a skilled team can destroy these if you are not careful.
  • Act as an extra pile of guns and not a flagship.
  • Avoid smaller Ships, as your Turrets are not accurate enough to hit them.
