Kneall Stronghold

From Galaxypedia


The Kneall Starbase (also known as Stronghold) is the equivalent of an Alien Starbase, from which multiple aliens spawn. The conditions for which this structure spawns are currently unknown, and it's shown on the minimap as a semi-transparent green circle.

Take extreme caution when going to the Kneall Starbase, its armament consists of an extreme multitude of laser gatlings, which can easily shred any shield in a matter of seconds. Due to their rapid fire, accuracy and range, they are also extremely effective against smaller ships. The many waves of aliens it spawns are also easily capable of taking out player Super Capital ships, so caution is advised.


The maximum Shields/Hull of the stronghold is 2.5M/1.5M, making the Kneall Stronghold one of the tankiest targets in the game.

Due to its range of about 8.5k and then adding also the size of the object itself, even Siege ships may have some problems taking down a Kneall Stronghold.

A Hyperion at the maximum distance to use its Commanding Presence module is able to prevent the Stronghold from shooting anyone else, while simultaneously healing faster than the base damages it. If a Hyperion is present try lead hulled Eradicators away from the Hyperion so it can continue using its Commanding Presence module without warping away from the powerful Nuke and reseting the cooldown.

When using powerful ships such as the Theia stop shooting at the stronghold around wave 4-5 as you may end up stealing other players %. This does not mean you can't participate in between waves.


The Kneall Stronghold requires the player to deal 4.5% of the total damage (180,000) in order for the chance to receive one of the following items:

These can be sold or converted at the top of the Terminal D in Mega Base.

The stronghold can also be looted the regular way, although this can only happen if you're team is granted loot priority (The last shot on the stronghold) The wreck of the Kneall Stronghold also provides multiple Kneall Cores and a very high amount of Ores and resources.
