General[edit | edit source]
The Blight Nova Missile is an advanced variant of the Nova Missile, dealing Blight DPS instead.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
Much like the original Nova Missile, The Blight Nova Missile can deal widespread amounts of Blight Damage at long range, taking out groups of targets relatively easily. The Weapon also retains the advantages of the original, having long range as well as a large AoE Radius.
As resistance towards Blight DPS is not very common, only available through the base resistance of certain Umbra Hulls, any other ship will take full DPS from the weapon and fall really quickly to this weapon. Blight damage also has the added advantage of granting additional ablative recovery in addition to the normal ablative recovery on Ablative Tungsten Armor.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
The Blight Nova Missile's DPS can be reduced if the opponents use Umbra Hulls such as the Wraith Cruiser, which have Blight resistance. The Weapon has a large minimum range as well and opponents can exploit the blind spot to deadly effect, using cutters or any fast moving ship to close the distance. In addition, like the original, the spread between both missiles is large enough to allow a single ship to pass through.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Blight Nova Missile's primary and secondary projectiles deal a total of 100% and 120% DPS respectively.
- The Blight Nova Missile is the First Blight Missile weapon in existence.
