General[edit | edit source]
|Ship Factory IX,|
Ship Lab IX
The Covenant Cruiser is a Tier 5 hull with extra offensive power in the form of weapon slots and mass reductions.
As a cruiser, this ship has great defensive capability and is designed to soak up damage.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
Covenant Cruisers are extremely lethal in combat with many weapon slots. Infernal Gatling Rays are a common Infernal weapon because of their reliability and high damage. Manifold Missiles are a cheap alternative and perform best in base hits. Reverb Rays are incredibly efficient but you might end up not fully utilizing the available mass on this ship.
Despite being a Demon Corps hull, Covenant Cruisers are quite durable because even with additional armor slots, people rarely max out the armor on cruisers due to the high repair time. 3 armor slots filled with Zynthium IV-V are sufficient to make this ship just as durable as a Corinthian Cruiser.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
For base rushes, Heretic Cruisers last much longer thanks to their Skirmish Armor which grants them a massive health pool as well as damage resistance. Covenant Cruisers can still be used as damage dealers, but be sure to use both cruisers: the Heretics can tank the damage, giving the Covenants extra time to demolish the enemy's Bridge.
