General[edit | edit source]

The Nova Driver is yet another weapon modeled after the Nova Ray. It deals Explosive Damage and has an extremely long range, and on impact, splits into 5 smaller projectiles (72 deg apart) which travel for 500 m at a speed of 5,000 m/s and explode with a 100 m radius. These secondary projectiles cannot pierce ships.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

The Nova Driver has extremely long maximum range, making it suited for Ranger ships which have long maximum effective range.

Despite being a Driver, this weapon is even faster than the previous Nova weapon, the Nova Missile, which improves its accuracy.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Nova Driver has a large minimum range and thus may not be suitable for ships with lower maximum effective range such as those with the Fighter or Titan role.

It has a moderate charge time, which gives enemies the opportunity to duck inside the ship's blind spot before it can open fire.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Nova Driver's primary and secondary projectiles deal a total of 100% and 50% DPS respectively, meaning that it can potentially do up to 150% DPS.
  • The Nova Driver is the first Driver weapon to deal Explosive Damage.
  • It is also the first Driver weapon to have a charge time.
  • The Nova Driver III originally had a bug in which its UI block failed to display Arms Lab requirements.
