The Dread Battleship is a Tier 4 hull with standard VEGA Mining technology.

As a battleship, this ship has bonus range and duplicate weapons for each firing arc, dealing massive damage from a safe distance.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Dread Battleships are what you need to farm NPC Targets of Tier 5 or below. When coupled with the Midgard Carrier or Ragnarok Carrier's Agility Field, they travel fast enough to kite most enemies and destroy them at minimal cost.

Its high maximum mass and large number of weapon slots enables the Dread Battleship to stack up on weaponry, swiftly destroying anything that gets in range.

The best weapon you can use at this tier for kiting is the Gladius Driver. However, it deals limited damage and should be replaced by Vector Torpedoes (only half a tier higher) as soon as possible. NET Torpedoes are essential for kiting at the higher levels.

Both regenerating shields (e.g. Diffuser Shield) and the Metaphase Shield are viable on Dread Battleships, depending on your fighting style.

Fusion Thrusters complement its kiting tactics well, which involve firing at slower enemies then turning away to gain distance before repeating the process.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

Dread Battleships have a huge unladen mass similar to the Fury Battleship, incurring a significant penalty on your maximum fleet mass for each additional ship, which is restricted by the level of your Fleet Bay.
