Not to be confused with the Nyxesion, a fighter from the Retro Nyx.

The Nixesion is a powerful Fighter designed specifically for the Nyx.


The Nixesion is a very powerful fighter that spawns only in the Nyx, with good health and high DPS in swarms at the cost of slow maneuverability.


Like all fighter class ships, the Nixesion has little in the way of an interior.


  • Very high firepower for a Fighter. (Higher than most destroyers and cruisers).
  • Decent durability.
  • Has two weapon types, allowing it to be effective no matter the situation.
  • Easy to control since it moves slow enough for the pilot to react.
  • A couple of Nixesions can destroy a Level 1, 2 and even a level 3 or 4 Starbase if undefended.
  • Effective when used to swarm large Battleships, Dreadnoughts, and Carriers.
  • Just 2-3 can deal more damage than most Dreadnoughts


  • Slow for a Fighter.
  • Can be shot down easily by Light Turrets.
  • Can be out-ranged.
  • No Turrets.


  • Listen to the captain of the Carrier. If you are told to focus on one ship or base, try to get every fighter to target it so as to maximize damage.
  • Ask for teammates to pilot the Nixesions.
  • Fighters are free. You can die as many times as you need to get the job done, but the enemy can't. Keep swarming until you win, and wear the enemy down.
  • Fly together in large swarms.
  • Fly at full speed to help avoid being shot down
  • Focus on destroying ships like the Ampharos first. Anything with a high count of light Turrets will easily rip apart Nixesions due to their slower speed, and Nixesions lack warp drives to escape. The best thing you can do is attempt to destroy threats like this as quickly as possible.
  • Overpower the enemy with swarms of Nixesions. Even a tempest can't fight back if enough fighters attack it.
