Trivia

  • One of the newer Miners to be added to the game.
  • The Hornet was proposed a long time ago with one Medium Mining Laser but was finally added in .61g with three Small Mining Lasers instead.
  • The explosion radius has been reduced to 0 multiple times due to a Roblox glitch.
  • Earns enough credits to pay for itself in approximately 1-2 trips.
  • Three times better than the Wasp in every way except for speed.
  • There was noticeable part overlap in the original model, most notably in the cockpit, creating a "glitchy" effect when looked at.
  • There's an image of Hornet from Hollow Knight on one of the screens.
  • When it was first released, the explosion was so powerful that it was able to 1 shot certain battleships.
  • If a new player uses all the codes, they can sell their new ships and purchase the Hornet, drastically and quickly improving their in-game progress.
  • Previously in Galaxy Arcade, it was referred as the obama-sphere as some joke to bait people that it is the best ship in the game.
