The Onslaught is a Limited Battleship that is a reconstruction of a Punisher from salvaged parts.


Description

The Onslaught is a battleship that can be bought for 200k Credits from Rev on top of the Portal on the Kneall Portal Base.

Appearance

The ship is a bright yellow and white playable version of the Alien Punisher. There is no interior. There is only a seat below the big bulb.

Advantages

  • Large Cargo Hold for a battleship.
  • Custom rapid firing and long-range laser and railgun turrets gives this ship the highest turret-based damage output of any battleship.
  • High speed and maneuverability for a battleship.
  • Small frontal and rear profile means that any inaccurate armament will have a difficult time hitting the ship, as long as it is pointed towards or away from the attacker.
  • Decently balanced health pool of 9,000 HP.

Disadvantages

  • No spinals.
  • Limited classification means this ship will be targeted often by other players or pirates seeking to destroy high-value ships.
  • Requires pointing directly at your target for all turrets to have a good line of sight.
  • Costed 200,000 credits, which is expensive (for a battleship); but not as expensive as many other limited battleships or advanced battleships.

Strategy

  • Support a fleet in Sieging a Starbase by utilizing the long range on your turrets, which is enough to keep you out of range of short-ranged weaponry or AA defenses.
  • Chase down and destroy crippled dreadnoughts, that in most cases lack the accurate armament necessary to fend you off.
  • Do not use this ship alone. It may be strong, but like the Nautilus; you currently cannot obtain it again should you lose it to destruction.
  • Use the lasers to harass smaller or faster ships (like the Constantine), as they are fairly accurate for the amount of damage they output.

Version History

  • Implemented in version .75a(which patch number of .75a?).
  • Model updated .75a12
