The Outrider is an Alien AI ship with an array of turret and spinal-based weaponry.

Description

The Outrider is an enemy AI ship that was first added as part of the Kneall fleet ship added in the then-recent Alien AI update, along with a few others (like the Bruiser and Scout). It is the Alien equivalent of a Cruiser.

Behavior

Outriders behave almost the same as Swarmers. They tend to stay around 3 to 3.5k studs from whatever they are attacking and may move below Ships to maintain turret line of sight.

When the Kneall Fleet is spawned, Outriders are spawned with it. They will always answer a Punisher's call for help once spawned. They will scatter once the target they have been called to is destroyed.

Just like all other Aliens, swarms of Outriders are easily able to destroy Starbases, even the most defended. They are not to be underestimated in a 1 versus 1 fight, as they can destroy the strongest cruisers, and even some weak Battlecruisers. Do not underestimate their insane weapon range compared to us.

Strategy

Due to having cruiser size, they are best fought off using Ships with high accuracy turrets.

Their size also allows players to try and brute force the kill with a battlecruiser or battleship, as high accuracy weapons aren't necessary.

Loot

Outrider wrecks give 50 Alien Parts.
