Limited Ship

This ship is a limited ship, and could only be acquired for a limited time or it has since become limited.
You lose it forever once it is destroyed.

The Liberator is a Dreadnought added during the Fourth of July Event 2020.

Description

The Liberator is a unique Dreadnought with its own Patriotic Turrets. It stands out among its class as an extremely maneuverable ship with a slim design, though it comes at the cost of slightly mediocre health when taking into account its price. It has a long, tapered body with a "patriotic" red, white, and blue color scheme. The ship can be entered through a teleporter-door on one side, which also means it docks "sideways." This ship was the only unique (non-reskin) ship added during the Fourth of July Event 2020.

Interior

The interior of the Liberator is very simple: a metallic, blue box with the American flag, a seat, and a small teleporter pad.

Advantages

  • High maneuverability.
  • Armed with unique Turrets that have high Hull damage.
  • Spinals have good Shield damage.
  • Very fast, with an impressive top speed of 100.
  • Its slim design enhances its evasive abilities.

Disadvantages

  • Was very expensive when it was onsale, requiring a level 28 Warehouse.
  • Somewhat fragile for a Dreadnought of its cost.
  • Requires Spinal aiming in order to deal effective Shield damage.
  • Very difficult to aim all turrets and spinals at the same time.
  • Despite being very mobile, its vulnerable underside leaves it prone to swarms.

Strategy

  • Use this ship's extreme maneuverability to strafe and drift around enemy ships like you would in a Battlecruiser.
  • Avoid using this ship in dangerous situations, as it can't be rebuilt after the event ends.
  • Although this ship has Light Turrets, they are best used against larger ships rather than smaller ones.
  • Due to the lack of shield damage outside of spinals, this ship somewhat struggles at destroying smaller vessels with decent shields.

Version History

  • Shield reduced to 2200 in version .68b, which caused a price drop.
  • Shields increased from 5800 to 6500, Hull increased from 3000 to 4000, Turret placement changed and teleporter position changed in version .68b.
  • Hull increased from 4000 to 6500 and 2 Patriotic Mass Drivers added in version .69e.
  • Speed decreased from 130 to 100.

Trivia

  • DrWhoInTARDIS was the first to lose this to Shadiris's Lucifer.
  • Used to break all Turret projectiles and sound effects.
  • Used to have 130 speed, which was the highest of any Dreadnought at the time.
