General[edit | edit source]
The Heavy Cluster Missile is an enhanced Cluster Missile with significantly more firepower.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
Similar to normal Cluster Missiles, this weapon is particularly effective against heavily-armored enemies and squadrons, almost matching the Xeno Disintegrator Cannon's DPS. It is also more mass efficient.
Its minimum range is impossible to exploit and can be neglected.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
Heavy Cluster Missiles are just as easily kited and cannot hit moving targets reliably, sharing the same downfalls as the regular version.
They have a small AoE that is useless unless boosted by Overcharged Warheads or other similar specials.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Heavy Cluster Missile is the first Heavy ship weapon.
- Despite its description, this weapon does not provide more AoE.
- The Heavy Cluster Missile originally fired like the Hydra Missile, albeit with a quicker firing rate; it now fires a flurry of missiles since the April 2017 update. Its spread was also halved to the present value due to its inaccuracy.
- Along with other T6 equipment, this item's build time was significantly reduced during the late April 2019 update as summarized here.
