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, or otherwise has limited availability on the Limited Build Menu.

The Prototype X-3 is a Miner-Class ship released as an April Fools' ship.

Description

The Prototype X-3 is a former hidden Quest ship until that was later put into the limited build menu. It resembles the design of the Wasp, but it carries a Colossus Cannon and Colossus Laser instead of a Mining Laser.

Interior

Just like the Wasp, this ship has no interior; players simply walk out onto the seat in the center, which is completely open to space.

Advantages

  • Very fast, small, and hard to hit.
  • Great Cargo hold, allowing it to be able to loot Pirates or other small wrecks.
  • Great 138.90 DPS to Shield for a ship of this size.
  • Ridiculously large and powerful nuke, which most players underestimate.

Disadvantages

  • Less Hull damage compared to Shield damage.
  • Class E Permit costs over 100k credits.
  • Only 1 Hull.
  • Only 21 ore hold.

Strategy

  • If you're going to use it, try to only fight big targets which can't hit you thanks to your 300 speed and small size.
  • Don't use this ship in War, as it will be targeted.
  • Treat this ship as a trophy.
  • Fly near your targets so your turrets can hit them, otherwise they will often miss.

Version History

  • Released in version .65b for 2 weeks as part of a “potential” April Fool's Day prank. The April Fool's Day prank was later confirmed true within a week of its announcement through the obtaining of it via a small rectangular container located a distance of 146k to 150k studs directly above the Mega Base.
  • Re-added for a limited time in version .66b, nobody managed to get it within that period.
  • Advanced AutoCannon replaced by a Colossus Cannon and reclassified to Miner in .72d.
  • Supercap/Huge miner icon removed and replaced with a normal wasp icon in an unknown version.
  • Buffed to 1k/1k hp, 300 speed, 0.9 turnspeed, became stealth and his turret got heavily buffed in dps but became the most unprecise turret of the game for few days in an unknown version.
  • Buffed to 3k/3k hp, the turret became a mining turret and also received 5 turrets, having one of the highest dps in the game (around 1.1k dps but still unprecise) before getting nerfed back to 1 normal machingun-like turret in an unknown version.
  • Received a X-3 Colossus Laser in an unknown version.
  • Nerfed DPS, was not a stealth ship anymore and hp changed to 1000/1 in an unknown version.

Trivia

  • The quest for it said that 7 million Credits, a Weapons Part, and an Alien Device were required, but in reality, you just needed around 7 Credits to get it. However, if you had the requested items above, the quest would take them from you.
  • Despite bearing a name similar to the Prototype X-1 and the Prototype X-2, which are both Super Capitals, Prototype X-3 is actually a Miner.
  • The first player to kill one was Birdhunter100.
  • One of the Developers, Arina, mentioned that if Galaxy won a Bloxy Award, they would add a battle Wasp to the game. Galaxy did not win a Bloxy Award, but this might be the battle Wasp Arina was talking about.
  • The room in which you got the quest was meant to be accessed with an extremely well-hidden teleporter. However, it was eventually discovered to be about 146 thousand studs above the Mega Base, where most people got it.
  • Back when it first came out, it could be sold for roughly 2 Million credits, though you would be banned for doing so. (Note: selling it after buying it for full price was not bannable.)
  • Was released a second time on 9/17/2019 for one day. It was hidden inside a large uranium in one of the corners, and to access the quest you needed to upgrade myriad to level 2. Nobody was able to get it in that time period.
  • Was put into the limited editions build menu on 2021, the materials required in this case is 181 silicate, 140 carbon, 117 iridium, 9 adamantite, 27 palladium, 14 titanium, 14 quantium, 11 uranium, and a Class E Permit (over 100k credits).
  • The current turrets are actually on the same spot and looks exactly the same, but the cannon is a mining laser and the laser is a railgun.
  • The Ship has a massive icon on the minimap, despite being extremely small.
  • The ship is classed as a miner, however, if used on the UNE team, will use a supercapital icon.
