The Industrial Miner has the sixth-quickest mining speed out of all standard Mining ships in the game due to its two Medium Mining Lasers. The ship has low health, only being able to withstand a few hits from Medium and Heavy weapons before being destroyed. Physically, the ship has four main thrusters behind the bridge, four large containers for Ores, and a tapered front end resembling an old model of the Advanced Miner. It takes a minimum of 150 seconds to fill up its hold.
The Industrial Miner's interior consists only of a short, yellow and gray hallway separated from the pilot's seat by a team-colored "door." The pilot's seat is about as tall as the player, black and gray in color, and faces an empty, gray room.
