The Vansnova is a Spinal-based PVP Battlecruiser.

Description

The Vansnova is a PVP ship with an energy orb in front. Its firepower comes from its energy orb that is armed with 2 Large Cannons and 6 Small Phasers. It is a Spinal-only Battlecruiser.

Interior

The Vansnova has no interior, you just go through the cockpit.

Advantages

  • High health combined with excellent maneuverability.
  • Powerful spinals.
  • Can outgun most ships of its class effectively.

Disadvantages

  • No Turrets.
  • Low HP.
  • Can be easily defeated by other Battlecruisers if the enemy pilot is skilled enough.
  • Only able to shoot from the front of the ship, so if other ships attack from the top, bottom, left, right, or back, the ship is undefended.

Strategy

  • Aim the Spinals where the enemy is going to be and try to get in blind spots.
  • Always move in some random directions, as to make it harder for Spinal shots and Turret fire to hit your agile form.
  • If you have a pack of these, then you'll be able to swarm and kill most ships that dare challenge you.
  • Due to its high mobility, it can easily cover its blind spots.
  • Try to drift as much as you can so that you're always going at top speed but never going too close or too far from your target.
