Not to be confused with the Halloween Event 2017 Limited Frigate-Class Spiderblade.

The Spider is a Spinal-focused Frigate.


The Spider is a Frigate. It deals significant shield damage for a ship of its class. It is a decently fast ship. The ship is shaped similarly to the Archangel.


The Spider has very little in the way of an interior. Inside, there is simply a small pilot seat.


  • Decent speed.
  • Ties with the Abyss for the best turn speed in the game.
  • Very small.
  • Has an adequate armament of Spinals.
  • A very good nuke ship, as it is cheap and does 250 explosion damage.
  • Dirt cheap. Even Wasp owners can mass-produce these.



  • Stick to other ships from your faction as you are vulnerable and rather weak alone.
  • Join up with an Abyss to take down larger ships. You take care of the shield, and they take care of the hull.

Version History

  • Added in .65a.
  • Explosion range reduced from 25 to 6 in .66b.


  • When you type in :cost Spider, most likely you will get the ship costs for the off sale, limited edition Spiderblade Frigate.
