The Scowling is an AI Battlecruiser class ship based off of the Nidhogg


It has a brighter brown-gold color scheme, as opposed to the dark brown coloring of the player-owned Nidhogg. This ship also has more health and firepower than the Nidhogg, likely resulting in its Battlecruiser classification rather than inheriting the Nidhogg's Cruiser classification.

The Scowling has a weaker counterpart in the Jormungand, which now spawns in place of(?) the Scowling, meaning this ship is effectively removed from the game(?).


This ship does not have an interior


  • Strong Hull damage.
  • Above average shield damage.


  • Weak shields for a Battlecruiser
  • Susceptible to shield tanks due to its reliance on Spinals for Shield damage.


  • Use a ship with powerful and accurate Hull-breaking turrets to defeat this ship as it is small and has little shields
