The Hearteater is a Pirate AI Super Capital (formerly a Battleship) released on February 14th, 2022; during the Valentine's Day 2022 Event.


Description

The Hearteater is a Pirate-affiliated AI ship that ruthlessly shreds both the Shields and Hull of any ship if not attacked with care, due to its armament having very high damage output for a Battleship.

Strategy

  • Given that this ship will significantly damage most ships that try to attack it (and will almost certainly destroy them if in swarms), try to fight them one at a time with a strong Dreadnought, Carrier(with AI Fighters), or Super Capital. Beware the fact that these ships are capable of calling all other Pirates present on the map.
  • Do not attempt to take out the Hearteaters if there is three or more of them with a ship. This is because a swarm of them are very dangerous, unless you know what you're doing and fielding a powerful ship with high alpha damage like the Prototype X-1, Astraeus or Judgement. Instead, deploy a Carrier(preferably one with many fighters) and use the Fighters to destroy the them.
  • If fighting one of these head-on by itself, ensure that you get close enough to force it to turn away and not be able to shoot its spinals at you.

Loot

For its power, the ship drops a measly loot of 3 Plasma Batteries; on top of no Combat Rewards due to the ship having no value.

Trivia

  • Many players have lost large and expensive Capital Ships to this foe. This is certainly not an enemy to underestimate.
