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 Retro Cyclops is a replica of the original Cyclops-class Dreadnought added during the Retro Ship Event 2020.


Description

The Retro Cyclops is a limited version of the original Cyclops featuring the ship's original model and weapon loadout. Unlike the current version of the Cyclops, the Retro Cyclops is a Siege ship, though it can still do well in PvP.

Interior

The interior of the Retro Cyclops consists of two nice-looking rooms. One room contains four sofas, and the other room contains another four sofas alongside two tables. The pilot's seat is at the front of the 2nd room.

Advantages

  • Large, balanced health pool allows it to take a beating from enemy ships.
  • Long range Turrets allow it to attack targets from a distance.
  • Very high Turret firepower; its high alpha damage (especially towards hull) and relatively low reload speed are a deadly combination.
  • Large cargo hold.
  • Good overall maneuverability.
  • Top mounted Turrets allow it to fire on enemy vessels and starbases from below.
  • Small for a Dreadnought.

Disadvantages

  • Inaccurate Turrets leave it prone to swarms.
  • Vulnerable bottom and rear.
  • Its expensive cost and Limited classification make it a huge target for pirates.

Strategy

Version History

  • Hull increased from 4000 to 6900 in version .68e.
  • Explosion Size 125 ----> 900 .75a12

Trivia

  • Looks very much like the Mothership and is often referred to as a "Mini" Mothership.
  • Can capture Aqueous II in 2 minutes and 15 seconds.
  • Jeffenator_3000X was the first to lose one to Shad_owLord's Osiris. He rebought it 3 hours later.
