The Zero is a very good Destroyer for dog-fighting.

Description

The Zero has a decent amount of health, while also being fast and maneuvrable. It is very good for attacking larger ships from their blind-spots and killing fighters with its turrets and phasers. There are two gatling guns which can take on smaller ships. A very good starting warship.

Interior

The interior of the Zero consists only of a small pass-through cockpit window and a square acting as the pilot's seat.

Advantages

  • Fourth cheapest Destroyer.
  • Powerful phasers, they can all fire together.
  • Good Shield damage.

  • The Spinals fire in a horizontal line, making hitting small ships and aiming difficult.
  • Not as much DPS (damage per second) as the Cobra.
  • Very weak turrets.
  • It will get melted by a Cobra or any other ships with a lot of phasers.
  • Rather slow for a Destroyer.
  • Low Hull damage.

Strategy

  • Use this ships agility to attack Frigates and Fighters.

  • Avoid ships with many small turrets such as the ampharos as they will shred you apart.
  • Use Q and E to tilt your ship to make sure the most spinals can hit.
