The Rapture is a Siege-focused Carrier with Medium and Heavy Turrets.

Not to be confused with the Raptor

Description

The Rapture is a strangely-shaped Carrier with many odd, mystical-looking decorations placed around the ship. It features four arced structures that come to a point past the back of the ship and a thinner nose area that connects to Starbase docking points.

The Rapture carries 3 Strikers and 3 Inflictors.

Interior

The entrance is a teleporter shaped like an elongated sphere located in a small tunnel in the nose. This takes players to the fighter bay. On the roof of the hangar, it says "Release the Seventh Seal".

At the end of the hangar is a larger teleporter that leads to bridge.

The Rapture has a nice fighter bay with fancy pillars and decorations.

The bridge contains a big screen in front of the pilot's seat and a clear floor with a reactor core under the pilot's seat.

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Somewhat vulnerable bottom.
  • Huge blind spots, requiring accurate aiming for all Turrets to have a line of sight.
  • Shield and Hull damage are not balanced, as it mostly relies on its Frenzies to do shield damage.
  • It is large and slow, making it an easy target to hit.
  • Has a hard time defeating smaller Ships without its Fighters.
  • No Spinals.

Strategy

  • Do not engage an enemy base without the help of your Fighter pilots or allied ships.
  • Work with your Fighters and tank while your Fighters dish out shield damage.
  • Tell your teammates to fly the Frenzies in groups so they will be more effective, as there are only six(Or, spend Robux on obtaining 6 AI Fighters).
  • Never go alone without your faction using your Fighters. Without support, you could be ambushed with ease.
  • Use the ship to tank for your fleet Starbases or Planets in Siege situations.
  • Watch out for experienced fleets that want to destroy you.
  • If you are far enough away, you can snipe people at ungodly ranges.
  • Use this ship's high alpha damage to decimate smaller Freighters or Miners, since those have low resistance to damage.
