The Falcon is a Fighter-class ship unique to the Vanguard.

Description

The Falcon is a unique Fighter-Class ship resembling its namesake that can spawn only in Carrier-class ships. It is a relatively normal Fighter in speed and size, and is currently the 4th fastest behind Xenophile, Nighthawk, and Dragonfly. The Falcon only has one small Phaser, which is made up for by a very quick reload speed. Furthermore, the Falcon's low firepower is compensated by very high health for a fighter-class ship, even more than some Frigate-class ships.

Interior

Like all Fighter-class Ships, the Falcon has little in the way of an interior.

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Almost no firepower, with only one tiny Phaser.
  • Susceptible to light Turrets.
  • Only two of them spawn in their signature carrier, the Vanguard.
  • Because it only spawns in the Vanguard, it requires at least one VIP person due to the Vanguard being a VIP ship.

Strategy

  • Like any Fighter, hide in a ship's blind spots.
  • Try to work together with multiple fighters to make up for the low firepower and to distract turrets.
  • Be especially careful fighting ships like an Ampharos, as it and others have many high-accuracy Turrets that can easily destroy even this high-health fighter.
  • Rotate the ship a lot to lower your chance of getting hit.
  • Slow down a bit when fighting smaller enemies.
  • Get inside a starbase by going into a docking port and start to eat up the base's health. (caution: possible ban)

Version History

  • Tiny Phaser spinal count increased from 1 to 3 in version .72f1.

Trivia

  • The Falcon was designed specifically for the VIP-only Carrier-Class ship, the Vanguard.
  • The Falcon is actually small enough to fit in a Starbase's docking ports.
