The Broadsword Destroyer is a Tier 2 hull with standard Miner Rebellion technology.

As a destroyer, this ship has modest firepower but very long range, taking out opponents from afar.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Broadsword Destroyers have significantly more maximum mass and can therefore deal more damage from long range. When marked up, they often eliminate Exodus Cruisers long before the cruisers can even open fire.

This ship has 2 special slots as opposed to 1 for the Longbow Destroyer, enabling it to equip thrusters and weapon boosts at the same time.

Broadsword Destroyers, like Talon Frigates, have under 5 minutes of repair time by default, so they can be used to spam enemy fleets during PvP events such as Civil War at minimal cost.

At Mk III, this ship gains a shield slot, which significantly contributes to its overall survivability.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Broadsword Destroyers are unable to run from unfavorable situations, so they are not suitable guard fleets, unlike Talon Frigates which can keep the enemy busy for a longer while before being destroyed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Broadsword Destroyer, unlike other Tier 2 ships, gives no additional equipment slots compared to the Tier 1 Longbow Destroyer.
  • The insta-broad tactic, where players use instant-repair Broadsword Destroyers, is infamous and widely used among players especially in Civil War.
