The Ajax is a titan modeled after the cruiser class. Its defining feature is its ability to tank, both for itself and nearby friendly ships.

Like other Tier 8 Altairian ships, the Ajax can recharge its shields even after being fully depleted.

Note that Tier 8 ships have a fixed repair time which is not affected by equipment.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Ajax is an incredible tank. Not only does it have up to 5 shield slots, increasing its shield capacity, but its Fortify overdrive also gives the ship a window of invulnerability against most damage types every time it takes some amount of shield damage, which counters the Operator's massive burst damage. Even when its shields are fully depleted, it can continuously regenerate them, allowing the Ajax to tank until it has no health remaining.

Its Savior overdrive enables it to support the fleet by automatically tanking for them whenever they lose their defenses, without the need to physically block the incoming projectiles.

This ship has a built-in AoE Radius bonus, which synergizes well with the Cascade Missile.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Ajax is relatively slow as a Tier 8 ship, making it vulnerable to kiting tactics. This is made worse by the fact that Fortify applies a speed penalty to the ship, meaning that ships can whittle down the Ajax simply by dealing enough damage to constantly activate the overdrive.

Weapons that deal Blight Damage or Void Damage can damage the Ajax even when Fortify is active, so they are able to reliably defeat it.

While both Savior provides the ship with 100% defense, meaning that the ship does not take health damage, this can be negated by shield bypass, greatly degrading the Ajax's ability to tank.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Ajax is the third Tier 8 ship, and the first Altairian Tier 8 ship.
  • The Ajax originally suffered from a bug in which its Fortify overdrive granted resistance to all damage to its shields (including Blight and Void). This was fixed in the late December 2019 update, which also changed the Fortify overdrive to provide hull resistance instead of shield resistance.
