General[edit | edit source]

Ship Lab X
The Damocles Destroyer is a Tier 5 hull with extra offensive power in the form of weapon slots and mass reductions.
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]
The Damocles Destroyer is not very durable, but makes up for it with the ability to equip powerful Infernal weapons. Due to their range, Infernal Wave Drivers are incredibly popular on Damocles Destroyers, which eliminate Hellfire Battleships within a single volley. Infernal Gatling Rays are devastating against blitz ships, destroying even heavily-armored Heretic Cruisers in a matter of seconds.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
The greatest threat to Damocles Destroyers is a carrier, since they have a very narrow firing arc that allows squadrons to get through unharmed and destroy them swiftly. It is important to use an Agility Field to speed up your Damocles Destroyers so that they can catch up to enemy carriers and get in range to fire as quickly as possible.
Damocles Destroyers are very fragile; stray shots from Creeper Torpedoes and Bayonet Missile Turrets can eventually take them out if you are not careful enough. In fleet combat, Armored Thrusters are extremely helpful because they add armor as well as mobility.
