The Retro Leviathan is a limited-edition version of the Leviathan that features its original model and armament.


Description

The Retro Leviathan is a limited Dreadnought featuring the Leviathan's original model and armament. Like its modern counterpart, the Retro Leviathan excels at capital ship combat.

Interior

The bridge is composed of a relatively simple room with windows in addition to a large pilot chair and two passenger seats, although only the former can be sat in. Before the bridge, there is a short hallway containing multiple seats and a teleporter to the bridge.

Advantages

  • Has an overall large and balanced health pool, allowing the ship to take a considerable amount of damage before having to retreat.
  • Its large cargo hold allows for a substantial amount of loot to be stored; perfect for pirating and looting bosses.
  • Extremely high top speed and maneuverability for a Dreadnought; has an exorbitant turn speed of 0.9, allowing it to outmaneuver other Capital ships with extreme ease.
  • Overall better stats and better firepower than the Leviathan.
  • High hull damage output with its 4 Huge Cannons.
  • Large assortment of Turrets allows for versatility.

Disadvantages

  • Very expensive for a Dreadnought.
  • Although it is hard to exploit due to the ship's very high turn speed, the underside is a weakspot.
  • Total health and overall damage output are on the lower end for a Limited Dreadnought.

Strategy

  • Be very careful when using this ship, as it is will be hunted due to its expense and Limited status.
  • Its weaponry and decent health pool allow it to chase down crippled ships very well.
  • Abuse large ships' blindspots with your extreme maneuverability.
  • In combat, warp and try to stay under your enemies; most of your turrets are on top of your ship.
  • Try to hit your Spinals as they account for 1/3 of your hull DPS.

Version History

  • Added in Version .66b for the Retro Ship Event.
  • Received a buff along with all other retro event ships in .66b shortly after the event ended.
  • Gained 2 Huge Cannons in version .75a5.
  • Explosion Size 180 ----> 940 .75a12

Trivia

  • The first player to lose this ship to another player was 2_1q to AlikeBird.
  • The first of the three leviathan models.
  • There is an admin ship that uses a downscaled version of this without the turrets, called the Baby Leviathan.
