General[edit | edit source]
The Lancer Driver is an Altairian Kinetic Weapon designed for long range siege warfare. it fires long, thin projectiles capable of piercing multiple targets, that can cruise much further than the firing range of the weapon itself.
Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]
Advantages[edit | edit source]
With the ability to pierce, as well as its inherently long range, the Lancer Driver is easily able to snipe most enemy modules from afar. This is further supplemented when equipped on the Inquisitor Destroyer, as the Ballista Overdrive will further boost the increased projectile range and pierce, making it long enough such that the projectiles are able to travel throughout n entire base itself, causing massive damage.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
The Lancer Driver projectiles are not the fastest, and they do not have proximity detonation, so they are unable to hit fast moving targets. Ships and modules equipped with resistance against Kinetic weapons and counter pierce technology can decrease the damage potential of this weapon as well. The weapon also has a large minimum range, meaning fast ships like Cavalier Cutters can close the distance quickly and stay in the blind spot.
The Xeno Lancer Driver is not as effective against Xeno Division Hulls and above due to their innate damage resistance.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The update of early August 2018 removed time and resource costs of Lancer Driver fragment crafting.
- The Blueprint for the Xeno Lancer Driver was only released once (as of 30 November 2018).
- The Xeno variant of this weapon is no longer available to Umbra hulls after the late April 2019 update to facilitate the rock-paper-scissors system between T7 factions. Existing items will be replaced by Blight Atomic Driver in the May 2019 update.
